“Miss me?”

Those were the last word uttered during the season three finale of Sherlock, and to fans of the program (Sherlockians, if you will) the answer was “a definite yes!”

The hit BBC series based on Arthur Conan Doyle’s sleuth and his companion, won’t be seeing a season four for almost two years according to series co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, but it’s beginning to sound like they have something in the works for the meantime.

While appearing on Alan Carr’s Channel 4 talk show, Chatty Man which airs tonight (April 25), John Watson himself Martin Freeman had revealed that Moffat and Gatiss might be working on a one-off episode to tide fans over until season four is released.

“Mark Gatiss may beat me up, but there is an idea for this one-off special that’s such a good idea, and as I was listening to it I thought ‘we’ve just got to do this’. And I don’t know when we are going to be able to do it, unfortunately.”

He added: “It’s a fantastic, really mouth-watering idea. But I really don’t know when we are going to get to do it.”

The long void in new episodes is not uncommon for the series that only releases three, two-hour episodes a year, around Christmas time. Due to Freeman and show star Benedict Cumberbatch’s busy upcoming schedule, the yearly gift has been pushed back to two years which means the one-off special would be a nice way to give back to the eager and hungry fans.

Offical ‘Sherlock’ Season 3 Trailer Debuts


It’s almost Christmas time and you know what that means? The BBC have our hearts in their hands.

With the return of Doctor Who for its yearly Christmas special of doom where we say good-bye to our floppy-haired, fez and bow tie wearing Doctor, Matt Smith to the return of Downton Abbey, but there’s one franchise that fans have been waiting eagerly for; the return of Sherlock.

“Baker Street isn’t there anymore. It’s been two years, he’s moved on with his life” Sherlock’s older brother, Mycroft tells his brother when he appears from “the dead.”

“The one person he didn’t think matter the most to me is the one person that mattered the most,” is possibly one of the biggest hints as to who helped him with such a big feat. Our bet is on dear, little Molly Hooper.

While the show isn’t scheduled to return until New Year’s Day in the U.K., fans on the other side of the ocean have to wait until Jan. 19 to find out just how he faked his own death.

Anyways, check out the trailer before and start getting that eared hat and magnifying glass ready.

Sherlock Gets In Touch With His Inner R. Kelly


What happens when you combine one of 2013’s hottest star and some of the naughtiest lyrics? Well, what you get is a hysterical video.

While making his rounds on the late night show circuit, Benedict Cumberbatch delivered a dramatic reading of R. Kelly’s “Black Panties.” Of course with the mixture of the lyrics and Cumberbatch’s deep voice (and lets not forget all the audience members laughing their butts off in the background) it just makes it hilarious.

Check out the video of the actor turning R. Kelly’s words into something that could be somewhat Shakespearean.

You can also see the complete interview here too.

Cumberbatch was on Jimmy Kimmel in support of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug where he plays the elusive dragon, Smaug as well as his hit BBC show, Sherlock.

BBC Releases Trailers For Two of Their Hit Shows


In between all the madness that was the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, which we have to admit was pretty good, the BBC decided to slip in some trailers for not one, but two of their shows.

The first trailer that made its debut was the second trailer for Sherlock. Sherlockians have been waiting for almost a year for the new season, but come on people, we all know that Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have been hard at work on some of your favorite movies, does The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug ring a bell?

Anyways, the 30 second sneak peek doesn’t give much information, except for what we already know; #sherlocklives. Now for how our favorite detective escaped unharmed following his fall, that’s something that should be answered this season. We think Molly had something to do with it, don’t you?

Check out the trailer for that here:

The other show that got their own trailer during the second airing of The Day of the Doctor was the surprise scientific show, Orphan Black.

Just like Sherlock, the trailer for the crazy clone oriented show does not give us much information, if any, but it does give fans something that they have been looking for since it was announced that the show won’t be returning until Spring 2014; a specific return date.

Maybe now we could find out who the original of the clone club is and what happened to Kira and Mrs. S.

‘Sherlock’ Season Three Trailer Premieres


When fans of Sherlock last saw the iconic detective last season, he was taking a nose dive off of a building much to the dismay (understatement) of all loyal fans and of course his close companion/friend, John Watson. The trailer for the new and highly anticipated season made its way onto the internet, proving what fans have been saying since that episode: Sherlock Holmes is not dead.

The barely 30 second clip, shows how each of the characters of the series react when they find out that Holmes is indeed not dead like dear Mrs. Hudson while doing the dishes, Molly sees his reflection, Detective Lestrade in a dark corridor, Holmes’ older brother Mycroft in his office  and of course Watson while sitting in a restaurant (with a snazy new mustache).

Sherlock is schedule to premiere sometime this year on BBC, but in the US, it’s not schedule to premiere until 2014 on PBS Masterpiece. But let’s be honest, knowing die-hard fans in the US, it will be seen within an hour of its BBC premiere.
