Sherlock fans, let’s face it, we’re all desperately scrabbling for any clues as to what is going on with Series 3, aren’t we?

Well, amid some faintly terrifying paintings of Watson and Sherlock “at it,” and the revelation that his head has not been as severely turned by the success of The Hobbit as you may assume, Martin Freeman let slip, on Comic Relief’s Big Chat – Graham Norton’s chat show marathon – that they start shooting the week after next.

He also said that, despite having read the scripts, he and Benedict Cumberbatch are still not entirely sure what happened to Sherlock at the end of The Reichenbach Fall, leaving only the gnomic words “Mark Gatiss is a clever man” for us to leap upon, like a starving man on a cake.

Here’s the clip, it’s fairly NSFW:

But still… the week after next!
