OKAY. SO HERE'S WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE NEXT SERIES:
“We have a plan to top it - and actually I do think our plan is devastating. We practically reduced our cast to tears by telling them the plan… Honestly, Mark and myself are so excited with what we’ve got coming up, probably more excited than we’ve ever been about Sherlock.”
“It’s going to be full of surprises for you, and for us and for everybody… What has been explained to me and Ben and Amanda Abbington – my missus who plays Mary – has been very exciting… The plans they have got for the overarching series – oh man, it’s just so exciting!”
“We’re going to try to take it somewhere we’ve never been before — and I don’t mean outer space. It will be challenging place to go We always start with a re-introduction that builds toward a darker climax — we might just be going darker [from the outset]. We’ve got a very, very good set of ideas.”
TALK TO ME. TELL ME YOUR THEORIES.
“Steven sat down with Martin and Benedict a month ago and took them through what the plans are. It’s impossible to guess what’s going to happen. They are being very bold and brave. There are twists and turns, as you would expect. But it is shocking.”
