Let’s be honest, apart from not really needing any excuse to put up any picture of Benedict Cumberbatch doing anything ever, this is a shameless raid on the Twitter feed of Mark Gatiss in order to glean any tiny crumbs of excitement about the next series of Sherlock, because the wait is actually, physically, painfully and entirely non-metaphorically killing us.

What? I’m not even exaggerating.

So, the hot news, as told by Mr Gatiss, is that filming has wrapped on the second story in the series, and that they commence work on the last one in the summer. Or to put in back into his words:

He was also quick to dismiss any rumors of a transmission date, because it hasn’t been sorted out yet.

And yes, we’re all fully aware this is unsatisfactory compared to a proper announcement, or a show to watch, or a kiss on the hand from Mr Cumberbatch himself, but then, what isn’t?

Oh wait, how
