And it sounds like season three will be well worth the wait. According to EW, Rebecca Eaton, Masterpiece’s executive producer, had this to say about the upcoming new episodes: “They are jaw dropping. They are like small movies. Benedict and Martin are so in their Sherlock-Watson groove. They are so comfortable with that relationship it’s like being in the room with them.”
Doesn’t that sound so good? I love Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock and Martin Freeman as Watson; their relationship has been fun to watch in both seasons one and two, and to know that it’s going to get even better – well, all I can say is, I am really looking forward to the premiere of season three.
While it was nice to see Cumberbatch land a role in “Star Trek” and of course, be the voice of Smaug in “The Hobbit,” and I do think Freeman is an excellent Bilbo Baggins, these roles have definitely made for a long wait between seasons two and three for “Sherlock” lovers.
In the last episode of season two, we watched as Sherlock fell from a rooftop – seemingly to his death. In “The Empty Hearse” we’ll find out more about what really happened to Sherlock. The second episode is “The Sign of the Three,” and the final episode is “The Last Vow,” which will air February 2.
So once again, we’re only getting three episodes in season three. I don’t know about you, but I know once February comes, I’ll be on the edge of my seat waiting for news of season four. Yes, the series is that good.
