Mark Gatiss announces Season Four of Sherlock

It’s Official: ‘Sherlock’ Season Four Has Started Filming

Suspense is second nature to the makers of Sherlock, so it’s no surprise they’ve been keeping us in the dark about the new season. Just last week Mark Gatiss teased us with a photo of a familiar prop on Sherlock’s mantelpiece (surely that means they’re on set right now, surely?), and then Amanda Abbington was at it, tweeting a corner of […]

A Guide to Martin Freeman’s Comedy Roles

We know Martin Freeman himself has a great sense of humor: Check him out in a fit of giggles with illusionist Derren Brown.

Sherlock’s locks have gotten a bit of a trim for the Victorian special, and star Benedict Cumberbatch is loving it. In an interview with Britain’s Independent, Cumberbatch says it was a bit of a relief getting Sherlock’s now-trademark tousled hair shorn for “The Abominable Bride,” the upcoming special set in Victorian times. “I was thrilled,” […]

WATCH: Holmes Meets Watson (Again)

There is something wonderful about watching Sherlock Holmes meet Doctor Watson. We all know these two are destined to be close friends. We all know that by the end of their opening conversation Sherlock will have been as frustrating, rude and brilliant as he can possibly be, and John will react with good humor and […]

Do we still have sleep in our eyes, or has Sherlock star Martin Freeman starred in a music video? No, we’re not dreaming. And, yes, Freeman is doing his thing in Paul Weller’s “Pick It Up” video.

Amanda Abbington Embraces Twitter, Martin Freeman Not So Much

We just recently tweeted that Sherlock’s Amanda Abbington likes to talk shop, and we like it when she does, in response to her giving us a little hint about the Victorian Sherlock special.
