Sherlock: The Empty Hearse Q&A with Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman & more...

31 December 2013 2:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Interview Louisa Mellor 1 Jan 2014 - 22:30

Here's what the cast and creators said after December's preview screening of The Empty Hearse. Huge spoilers ahead...

Spoiler warning: best avoided if you haven’t seen The Empty Hearse.

After the posh BFI screening of The Empty Hearse in December, writer Caitlin Moran chaired a Q&A with the cast and creators. Mark Gatiss, who wrote the episode, was in attendance with Steven Moffat, Executive Producer Sue Vertue, director Jeremy Lovering, and actors Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch. We’ve trimmed a few of the gags, and the four giggly minutes or so spent wading through an online fan-fic, but the rest is mostly intact. It all began with a scream…

Caitlin Moran: Collectively, having seen the mood outside before this started, and the mood in here today, if everybody would like to let free one big scream to let out the tension, »

Martin Freeman on Sherlock series 3, John and Sherlock's reunion, the fall, & keeping secrets

9 December 2013 1:01 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Interview Louisa Mellor 10 Dec 2013 - 07:00

The last but not least of our Sherlock series 3 round-table interviews from back in April, with John Watson himself, Martin Freeman...

Happily, Martin Freeman will be unavoidable for the next few weeks. First, he's headlining The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, out in the UK and around the world on Friday the 13th of December. Just over a fortnight after that, we'll see him return to the role of John Watson, a man about to have his graveside wish - that Sherlock perform one last miracle and not be dead - granted.

The Holmes/Watson reunion, we're told, will be less about the resolution to the two-year-old question of how Sherlock survived his rooftop fall, and more about John's reaction. No small amount of pressure rests on Freeman's shoulders then, not that it was in evidence as we spoke to him in a round-table interview in April, »

25 October 2013 2:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Those who have already read Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange And Mr Norrell are already fully aware that the novel is arguably a modern classic of speculative fiction, a magic-infused alternate history of England that stands with the very finest works of the genre. It's riveting entertainment and just fabulously written stuff and so the news that it was being brought to the screen by the BBC was met with much enthusiasm when word of the impending adaptation broke earlier this year.Well, it gets better ... the principal cast was announced by the BBC today with Olivier award winning Bertie Carvel cast as Strange opposite impeccable character actor Eddie Marsan as Norrell. Veteran Dr Who and Sherlock director Toby Haynes is at the helm and while...

News Louisa Mellor 25 Oct 2013 - 08:25

Eddie Marsan and Bertie Carvel are to star in the BBC's forthcoming adaptation of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell...

The BBC adaptation of Susanna Clarke's tremendous Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, announced just under a year ago, is pressing ahead, with two very fine actors cast in the lead roles. Eddie Marsan is to play the enigmatic Mr Norrell, with Bertie Carvel as the titular Jonathan Strange.

Marsan, whom Us audiences may have recently seen on Ray Donovan, will need no introduction from us, save a reminder that he's one of the UK's finest. Bertie Carvel's name may be less familiar, but to anyone who's seen his terrific performance in Matilda the Musical, is no less cause for celebration. Granted, we had Damien Lewis and Derek Jacobi on our wishlist for the roles, but Carvel and Marsan are exciting choices.

Joining the central pair are Paul Kaye, »

BBC America will co-produce a seven-episode series based on "Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell," the sprawling, best-selling novel by Susanna Clarke.

The BBC announced late last year that it had commissioned a series based on the novel. BBC America's participation helps ensure the show will air in the United States as well -- it's scheduled for 2014 and will be part of the channel's "Supernatural Saturday" programming.

Peter Harness ("Case Histories," "Wallander") is adapting Clarke's book, which tells an alternative history of England in the early 19th century through the story of two magicians, Gilbert Norrell and Jonathan Strange. Toby Haynes ("Doctor Who," "The Reichenbach Fall" episode of "Sherlock") will direct.

Production is scheduled to begin in the summer in multiple locations, with part of the series set to film in Canada. No one is attached to the cast yet.

Endeavour director Colm McCarthy, also behind the camera for a Doctor Who 7B episode, will direct one third of Sherlock series three...

Amongst the bile, Rip gags, emergency puppies, and instagrammed lunch pics, the odd nugget of interest often drifts to the surface of Twitter. Today's such nugget is the news that Doctor WhoEndeavour and Ripper Street director Colm McCarthy is to helm one of the three forthcoming Sherlock episodes.

McCarthy announced his directing gig with the humble message "It's turning into a year of childhood dream fulfilment. #DoctorWho and now #Sherlock #dreamjobs #nopressure #whendoigetfoundout".

Despite McCarthy's IMDb listing saying otherwise, the Doctor Who episode in question is the Steven Moffat-penned The Bells of St John, which kicks the series back off on Saturday the 30th of March.

McCarthy wouldn't be drawn on which of the three new Sherlock episodes (Wedding? Rat? »
