Not only has there been an announcement by Entertainment Weekly for BBC Sherlock Series 3 Premiere on January 19, it will be showing right after my other favorite British series, Downton Abbey. These two shows are the best shows on the air, or about to be on the air, in my humble opinion!
Sunday nights on PBS Masterpiece will be my TV night of choice, although for me it will be a late night! Sherlock starts at 10pm and as you know these are long episodes, pretty much movie length. I get up at 5am, but such small sacrifice for the two best shows on the air.
The first episode of Sherlock Series 3 will be called The Empty Hearse and will explain how Sherlock survived the plunge to his death. I’m pretty sure I have already figured it out and you can read my list of Sherlock death clues here. What I am now wondering is did Jim Moriarty really die as well? After all, he is a pretty even match for the intellect of Sherlock and it seems odd to me that he would take his life like that just to win a game.
Series 3 of Sherlock will also feature Watson getting married to Mary Morstan.
I am already in agony that Sherlock Series 3 will only be 3 episodes again, making the series over on Feb 2, and then we wait again! Both Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Martin Freedman (Watson) have indicated publicly that they will do a Series 4, but there is no actual confirmation from anywhere else that I know of.
So, who will be watching this with me on Sunday nights?
Be sure to get caught up, Series 1 and 2 are free on Netflix or you can get your very own copies from Amazon.
