In November, Benedict Cumberbatch announced his engagement to actress Sophie Hunter, remarkably in a newspaper announcement. But recently the film and TV actor revealed that there is one role that has definitely gotten in the way of wedding planning: Sherlock Holmes.
There’s nothing I love more than turning on the television and trying to solve a mystery. Whether it’s an easily-wrapped, hour long case on a show like Bones or a longer, sprawling mystery that slowly unfurls over an entire season, I’m ready and willing to submit my guesses.
The Screen Actors Guild just unleashed its nominees for 2014, and as it usually is with television, most of the nominees are pretty much what you would expect. Game Of Thrones, House Of Cards and Modern Family all cleaned up on nominations.
Benedict Cumberbatch has been a busy man over the past few years, taking roles in big budget films like Star Trek Into Darkness and The Imitation Game. But, in true Cumberbatch fashion, he has stayed humble, appreciating the breakout role that paved the way for his fame.
There’s a lot of mystery surrounding the upcoming Sherlock special. However, this week Sherlock producer Sue Vertue announced the special is currently filming, giving fans a couple of awesome photos that shed a little light on the 2015 episode of the hit series. Just check out John Watson and Sherlock Holmes in this brand new photo.
Let’s say something terrible happens to someone you know. For the sake of argument, let’s say a cousin who you’re kind of close to gets straight up murdered by some unknown hood. You need answers, and you want them quickly. Who should you go to?
Reddit’s 'Ask Me Anything' sessions often offer fun little peeks into the lives of celebrities and important figures, and Doctor Who writer and actor and Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss’ AMA was certainly no different (although his was decidedly proper, with ‘favourite’ and other words spelled in the lovely British manner). If you like to geek out to either of Britain’s excellent dramas, we’ve culled together some of the best moments from Gatiss’ AMA.
Following word that Sherlock fans would have to wait until Christmas 2015 to see the series back on television with a new episode -- or special, as it were -- comes a more official update that the BBC mystery drama will be back for a special and then three new episodes.
Hey, remember a couple of months ago when Sherlock actor Martin Freeman spilled the beans on a potential one-off episode of the hit series in the works? Well, we have great news and not-so-great news for fans who might be hoping that BBC One will bring back the show, in whatever capacity, soon. Over the weekend, Freeman was again discussing the possibility of a new episode, and he revealed that Sherlock will be back for a Christmas special… just not until 2015.
There are some shows that inspire so much fanaticism from audiences that any news is good news. Sherlock is one of those programs, and on Friday we learned that there is some brand new news related to see the series. Star Martin Freeman, who plays Watson in the series, recently appeared on Channel 4’s Chatty Man series, noting that a one-off episode of Sherlock may be in the works.
During the last episode of Criminal Minds to air, Jennifer Jareau was kidnapped and tortured by a militant former associate who wanted her access codes as part of an anti-government conspiracy. During the last episode of The Mentalist to air, a recurring character and associate of the lead was kidnapped, tortured and murdered as part of an organized campaign against the CBI.
Ugh. Ugh, ugh, ugh Steven Moffat, how you toy with the emotions of the fans that love you and Sherlock. Despite previous rumblings, the showrunner revealed it might just take another 2 years for the esteemed Mr. Holmes and his good buddy Watson to appear on screen together again. You're tearing us apart, Moffat!
When there’s a mystery afoot, who better to solve it than the real-life counterpart of Sherlock Holmes himself, Benedict Cumberbatch, eh? That’s exactly what happened when Sesame Street put the Sherlock star on the case of Murray (oh, sorry, Murray-arty)’s apples and oranges. And with a little help from Count Von Count, The Sign of Four has turned into the most adorable video of the day.
Tonight’s third season ender for Sherlock was everything you loved about the series amped up by a billion. A nonstop, twisty-turny, action-packed, and clever as hell little jaunt, "His Last Vow" took us out the insular world of Watson and Holmes and into the reality of the situation. It exposed — at last — not only our big baddie, but a new character we’re dying to see more of (Bill Wiggins), a side of Mary Morstan we’d previously not seen, and a heck of a lot of slapping. Being trapped in a bunch of mind palaces never felt so good.
Steve Thompson's return to Sherlock has proven that he may currently be my favorite writer the series has utilized thus far. The series soars when the great Sir Arthur Conan Doyle detective has some incredibly intricate work at play. And there was no shortage of such thanks to the wedding of John and Mary, wherein we saw the most human — and mature! — side of Sherlock Holmes we'd yet to encounter. In fact, this may have been my favorite episode of the series thus far.
