Sherlock: Series 3 IF Sherlock Survives
Steven Moffat has teased that there are plans for a third series of Sherlock, provided the super-sleuth survives the finale of the second series, The Reichenbach Fall.
Moffat explained to Digital Spy where he’d like to take the show: “If he survives… there’s a whole bunch of details that have never been mentioned before in any film – stuff that we love. The meeting [between Sherlock and John] – I think it’s maybe, in the 200-odd Sherlock Holmes dramatisations, it’s maybe the third time it’s been done. And it’s a great first meeting – it’s a flat-share. It’s flat-share detective thriller comedy – how can you not do that?!
“I don’t know if we’ll do anything with this, but the fact that Doctor Watson is married for loads of the stories is really interesting. He and Holmes don’t always live together and I think that’s become a lazy way of doing Sherlock Holmes – they always live together. They didn’t actually and why would they? Nobody flat-shares forever, so there’s loads of details we can get in there…”
The Reichenbach Fall airs Sunday 15 January at 9pm on BBC1.
