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.
