Sherlock: Long Future Ahead?
Could we be seeing Sherlock on our TV screens for many more years to come? Recent hints from co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss could suggest so.
“These are still the formative years of Sherlock Holmes,” Moffat says on the Series 2 DVD (via Radio Times). “The most important thing about this series is not that it’s updated. It’s the fact that those two men are still young and they’re still at the beginning of what they don’t know is going to be a lifelong relationship.”
Gatiss added: “The scale of the stories means that we’ve got to the death of Sherlock Holmes within six episodes. They’re big stories with themes of love and fear and death, and we want to see [Sherlock and John] go through the fire. That doesn’t mean that by the end of this they’ve reached the end of their possibilities.”
Now there’s just that little issue of keeping a hold of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
