Next series of SHERLOCK begins filming

The BBC has just sent out a press release announcing the start of filming on the first of the three 90-minute episodes that will comprise season 4 of Sherlock.


So what lies in store? Co-creators, writers and executive producers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss (pictured above) have this to say:

“Sherlock series four – here we go again! Whatever else we do, wherever we all go, all roads lead back to Baker Street – and it always feels like coming home. Ghosts of the past are rising in the lives of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson bringing adventure, romance and terror in their wake. This is the story we’ve been telling from the beginning. A story about to reach its climax…”

Rachel Talalay, who did such a great job with the two season finales of Doctor Who is directing the first of the films.

I greatly enjoyed the Christmas special set, more or less, in Victorian times, though it did feel like an extravaganza of sorts and a bit of a left turn while we waited for the next series. Not everyone liked it, and I know why, but I thought it was great fun. Odds are that the next season won;t be broadcast until January 2017 sadly, but filming won;t be over until the Summer, so that is not much of a surprise.

    Nice to know there’ll be another series, Sergio. It’ll be really interesting to see where the series goes this time. Well, plenty of time to speculate…

    I’ve only ever seen the first series as it hasn’t been on whenever I’m in the UK. I remember thinking it wasn’t bad and a good stab at modernizing the characters and stories.

    • I am a bigger fan than you then! I’ve really enjoyed how it managed to do its own things while also being faithful to the spirit of the originals as well as the Rathbone and Bruce films. Mind you, I envy any distance you have from Cumberbatch mania!

  3. Sergio, “Game Of Thrones” is the current flavour at home while, personally, I’m looking forward to watching some episodes of “Doctor Who.”

    • Good man! I did enjoy season 1 of Thrones but wanted to read the books before getting into the next season, and then I stalled and well, never got back my momentum …

    I look forward to another season… and haven’t seen the Christmas special. Maybe it is good to have such a long break between seasons, so as not to get tired of the series.

    Can’t wait. My wife and I have finally caught up to all episodes in seasons 1 – 3.

    The Christmas special hasn’t made it to free to air TV here in Australia yet. It does sound worth waiting for.

    • Be interesting to see what you make of it – obviously its entire premise, relocating the show to Victorian England, is playful and I think it lives up to that – but while the ratings were huge, the reception has been mixed.
