Though spoilers on 'Sherlock' season 3 remain under lock and key just about as tightly as news of Benedict Cumberbatch and 'Star Wars,' the BBC offered up a new treat for the third season. Four new photos from production see series stars Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman back in action as Sherlock and Watson (sans mustache), so take a look at the hotly anticipated new season right here!

No major spoilers to be found in the BBC's behind-the-scenes look at 'Sherlock' season 3, though at the very least we've got plenty of rain and some interesting wardrobe choices from writer-star Mark Gatiss, likely not in character as Mycroft. Production has since wrapped on the third season, though the BBC has yet to set an official air date for the third series, either here or in the UK.

Meanwhile, in addition to the footage screened and details gleaned at Comic-Con, we most recently learned of season 3 that Danish actor Lars Mikkelsen (brother to ‘Hannibal”s Mads Mikkelsen) has joined in the villainous role of “Charles Augustus Magnussen,” a character with no direct literary counterpart, but one that likely corresponds to 1904 Sir Arthur Conan Doyle story “The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton.”
