We’ve been at the edge of our seats watching the second series of popular detective show, Sherlock. The TV adaptation of the popular novels and films has proved to be very popular indeed, and Benedict Cumberbatch’s portayal of the great detective is both impressive and dare we say it, swoon-worthy.
So, it’s a good job that co-creator Steven Moffat has announced that there will be a third series, hurrah! Steven and fellow show creator Mark Gatiss took to social networking platform Twitter to break the news to excited fans. Steven tweeted,
“#Sherlock Yes of course there’s going to be a third series - it was commissioned at the same time as the second. Gotcha!.” Mark followed suit by tweeting,
“Gotcha! And of course there’ll be a third series! It was commissioned at the same time as series two!!”
The cast and crew had kept the idea of a third series being commissioned under wraps, as they wanted to stir controversy over how the final episode of season two would draw to a close. Martin Freeman had previously confessed that he hoped a third series would go ahead so that he could carry on playing the loyal Doctor Watson.
However, Benedict was much more cunning, stating that a third series could be “quite hard” to run, given the ending of the current series. The big tease.
What do you Heatworld Citizen’s think of the show? Are you excited at the prospect of a new series?
