Martin Freeman Reveals When We MIGHT See More SHERLOCK!!
Martin Freeman - so very wonderful as John Watson in the inconsistent by usually masterful SHERLOCK show - recently spoke to Telegraph, briefly touching on when further installments of the title might be on the way.
We’ve known previously that all involved are apparently willing and eager to continue forging blocks of episodes for the show - but multiple scheduling considerations are mean bringing further installments to fruition is a complicated proposition at the moment.
But Freeman told the Telegraph that a period of filming in early 2015 “looks pretty likely”.
“If that’s going to be a special - I’m speaking off-message here; if this was New Labour I’d get fired - I think that might be for next Christmas. A Christmas special. That’s what I understand,” he said, indicating that a full-blown series is unlikely.
Compelling here is whether “a full-blown series is unlikely…” means at this particular time, or…forever.
Freeman also revealed that the fate of Watson’s new wife Mary, played by his real-life wife Amanda Abbington, may well follow the trajectory laid out by Arthur Conan Doyle’s source material. This might be a SPOILER to those unfamiliar with it:
“While we play fast and loose with the original stories, we generally follow the trajectory of what Conan Doyle did. So he [Watson] gets married, and then Mary dies - so at some point presumably she’ll die,” Freeman said.
If you’ve yet to watch SHERLOCK, the Blu-rays currently available via Amazon and other retailers look magnificent - the show is wonderfully shot and I’d highly, highly recommend watching it in HD. It’s also available via a variety of streaming platforms, including Amazon, Netflix, and iTunes.
