'Sherlock' on BBC One has amassed a legion of adoring fans from countries all over the world. It takes a special show to enrapture audiences and an even more spectacular one to earn praise on the international stage. Heck, 'Sherlock' is such a smash hit that it brought out Comic-Con fans in droves--despite the fact that the show has nothing to do with comic books or science fiction!
BBC One released this teaser trailer last night. Despite the fact that it doesn't reveal much in the way of information about the new season, it hasn't stopped fans from becoming very excited. Let's face it, that theme music alone is enough to make our hair stand on end at this point, no?
One new development from the trailer: Watson grew a moustache. So, that's fun.
The question on everyone's minds after the thrilling conclusion of the second series is: just how did Sherlock survive that fall?
Well, although neither Freeman nor Cumberbatch could attend Comic-Con in person (as they are both rather busy, being internationally-demanded movie stars and all), they each submitted video greetings to the fans in attendence... and Cumberbatch decided to spill the beans about Sherlock Holmes' daring survival-trick!
.... in a manner of speaking, that is. Check out Freeman and Cumberbatch's messages to Comic-Con below:
Gotta love these guys, no?
Also at Comic-Con, co-creators/exec producers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss and producer Sue Vertue showed a clip from the second episode of the upcoming season featuring Sherlock delivering the best man speech at Watson’s wedding. Heavy on comedy, the nearly 5-minute scene got big laughs and a standing ovation.
Who else is excited for more 'Sherlock,' like I am?
If you arn't going to leave a name, i'll just call you "Hay Foolish One". The actual reason they only make a VERY short season for Sherlock is because they want to keep people talking about the few episodes that there are so it seems better than it is. Not to mention that it is also one of the most expensive shows they produce, for it's kind. They think that making more episode would make the wrighting harder and they just can't find the staff to improve that. All in all, they are too lazy (and cheep) to make it a bigger and better series.

mike1616 - The reason Sherlock is probably the best show that the BBC has produced and is up there with the best television that I've ever seen is because the seasons are so short! It creates brilliant episodes that live long in the memory. How many episodes of Seinfeld, Friends, etc are easily forgettable? Now compare Sherlock, The Office (British version), Doctor Who etc and you'll see why those shows are so encapsulating.

I have had a go at the dickheasd that put shows on that only run for 10 or 13 episodes per season, so you know how I feel about the teem behind this show. It is a good show and I do watch it, but I am really pissed off at just 3 or 4 episodes per season.
If enough of us make it knowen that we want more episodes, maybe they just might give us more. God forbid, they may even give us a 10 episode season.

Can't wait for the new series to start. This is the absolute best reinvention of the Conan Doyle characters.

Another show I have yet to watch :( So many shows I so desperately want to watch. Need Superman to slow down Earth rotation so days can have 48 hours :) That'll do!
