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!
The last time director Bill Condon and actor Ian McKellen teamed up, we got 'Gods and Monsters,' a film that earned Condon an Oscar for his screenplay and McKellen a nomination for his performance. Now, a bunch of 'X-Men,' 'Lord of the Rings' and 'Twilight' films later, the two of them are collaborating once more, returning to their more traditional and dramatic roots. Condon and McKellen have signed on to direct and star in 'A Slight Trick of the Mind,' which will see the legendary British actor take on the role of legendary British detective, Sherlock Holmes.
Whether you count yourself an 'Elementary' or 'Sherlock' fan, you had to admit that the CBS procedural managed to distinguish itself quite a bit from its spiritual predecessor, and with a much more accessible schedule. Case in point, the first photos from 'Elementary' season 2 premiere "Step Nine" have hit the web, featuring our first look at 'Amazing Spider-Man' star Rhys Ifans as Mycroft!
Huzzah! Just hours after the BBC teased that today's 'Sherlock' broadcast would feature a special treat for fans, the network has delivered something even the Comic-Con 2013 audience has yet to see: the first 'Sherlock' season 3 trailer! See Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) make his grand return to all the supporting players, only overshadowed by the presence of John Watson's (Martin Freeman) hysterical mustache!
Just yesterday, we learned from the BBC that 'Doctor Who' will unveil its newest time lord this coming Sunday, but it seems genre fans might be in for another surprise even earlier. The BBC has released a mysterious new 'Sherlock' season 3 image, and told viewers to pay close attention to a repeat airing of season 2 finale "The Reichenbach Fall," so what new material might we deduce?
For as many questions as 'Sherlock' fans have over the eagerly anticipated third season, including those answered and glimpsed during the show's first panel at Comic-Con 2013, at least one major mystery has been thoroughly solved. Danish actor Lars Mikkelsen (yes, brother to 'Hannibal''s Mads) has joined the third cycle in the major villainous role, replacing Andrew Scott's "career criminal" Moriarty, but as whom?
'Game of Thrones' season 4 had already kicked off the casting race in advance of its panel at Comic-Con 2013, tapping Chilean actor Pedro Pascal in the fan-favorite role of Dornish prince Oberyn "The Red Viper" Martell, but it seems HBO had another major casting that just couldn't wait. 'Sherlock' star and writer Mark Gatiss has joined the epic HBO drama's fourth season, but as whom, you ask?
Just yesterday we learned of another classic Sherlock Holmes character to debut in 'Elementary' season 2, atop the reveal that 'The Amazing Spider-Man' star Rhys Ifans would take the iconic role of Mycroft Holmes for the London-set premiere this fall. Now, CBS has revealed the premiere title for 'Elementary' season 2's September 26 debut, and provided us our first look at Holmes and Watson back on the case!
The first season of CBS' modern Sherlock Holmes adaptation 'Elementary' gave us new spins on such famed Sir Arthur Conan Doyle characters as Moriarty, Irene Adler and Sebastian Moran, apart from Sherlock and Watson themselves, so who's the latest to sign on for season 2? Joining Rhys Ifans' Mycroft Holmes, Sean Pertwee has officially signed on for the literary role of Inspector Lestrade!
Now that 'Game of Thrones' star Natalie Dormer will begin her three-episode 'Elementary' arc tonight, leading up to next week's finale, the major question of the season lingers as to whether or not the modern Sherlock Holmes tale will finally introduce Sherlock's greatest nemesis, the enigmatic Moriarty. We can't say for sure, but at the very least, we know one thing! Sherlock's season 2 premiere will hop across the pond to film. Now the question is, what would bring Sherlock Holmes back to his previous stomping grounds?
