It is sometimes hard to actively think about the future of Sherlock because it’s one of those series that you are never quite sure when you could be watching the next new episode. Since it’s been almost two years since the last episode aired, you can understand if I’m not exactly expecting any future seasons anytime soon, regardless of the massive anticipation for the impending third season. Yet there is a future for Sherlock and, if co-creator Steven Moffat is to be taken seriously, it’s going to be a long and prosperous one. It’s hard to imagine, but I can at least say that I would be pleased for Sherlock to last for years to come.
According to TVLIne, Moffat has been talking about the potential for a fourth season, saying that despite no official renewal, Season 4 is an inevitability. So long as everyone involved »

As the seconds tick by until the end of 2013, a very special date is coming ever nearer. A time when friends and family alike will come together and bask in the joy of the occasion that we’ve all been waiting for.
That’s right: the third season of Sherlock will premiere just one a month from now in the United States, and in less than a fortnight if you live in the UK. After a two-year hiatus during which its stars went to outer space and Middle-earth, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ modern update of Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective stories has three more 90-minute episodes featuring the further adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and John Watson (Martin Freeman).
The BBC has recently been building up hype for Sherlock season three with trailers and teasers, and has now released an interview with ...

The big question which has led to so many forum/pub/front room arguments is how did Sherlock (Cumberbatch) managed to survive his plummet to the pavement whilst surrounded by numerous witnesses? Not only that but how will Dr John Watson (Freeman) take the news that his best friend has faked his death for so long?
The first episode shall be entitled 'The Empty Hearse' and has been written by Mark Gatiss (League of Gentleman, Doctor Who); however on Christmas Eve, over on BBC iPlayer, there will also be a prequel episode called 'Many Happy Returns'. Below are interviews with Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss plus Q&As with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.

Ever since 1893, when the Sherlock Holmes short story “The Adventure of the Final Problem” was published by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in Strand Magazine, James Moriarty has been Sherlock Holmes’ ultimate archenemy. Since then, Moriarty has been portrayed in a variety of Sherlock Holmes films, television series, radio broadcasts and plays, with little variation in his foundations: he’s always clever, always cunning, always nearly getting the best of the famous consulting detective.
Then, in 2010, BBC’s ‘Sherlock’ came to the screen, with a characterization of Moriarty the likes of which had never been seen. Andrew Scott’s scene-stealing performance, and, of course, top-notch writing by Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss, and Steve Thompson, created a character who is equally bizarre, hilarious, creepy, and fascinating.

Executive producer and screenwriter Simon Kinberg (X-men: Days Of Future Past, Sherlock Holmes) is ushering in a new, but familiar, era for Star Wars fans with the new animated series Star Wars: Rebels, which takes place just before Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope, where the formation of the Rebel Alliance takes shape. Kinberg, a devout Star Wars fan, has a specific goal in mind for the show, saying: "The hope and the dream is that the experience of Rebels is similar to the »

Two-time Academy Award®–winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar®-winner Tom Hanks topline Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks,” inspired by the extraordinary, untold backstory of how Disney’s classic “Mary Poppins” made it to the screen. This past month Wamg attended the Saving Mr. Banks press conference where Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson, Colin Farrell, Jason Schwartzman, Bj Novak, Bradley Whitford, director John Lee Hancock, writer Kelly Marcel and producer Alison Owen discussed making the film, Nanny McFee, and scarring grandchildren with Winnie the Pooh.
When Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers’ “Mary Poppins,” he made them a promise—one that he didn’t realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. »

Not too long ago the closest thing we had to a "horror board game" was the Ouija Board, but times have changed. The board game industry is alive and kicking, and as a result all good genres get proper representation. It seems horror resonates the most with board game companies, because we saw a slew of awesome new games come across our play table. Some of these games are twisted, some are spooky, some (okay, let's be honest, most) have something to do with H.P. Lovecraft. But these five games rose above the rest to deliver fright-filled competitive and cooperative play! Game on, horror fans, and check out these 2013 releases.
Have you ever wanted to play a game where you felt like the world was crumbling all around you? In 'Eldritch Horror'… you can! Inspired by the stories and themes of H.P. Lovecraft and his Cthulhu Mythos, players »

"Sherlock" and "Downton Abbey" are both returning to PBS' "Masterpiece" series in January. Thus, the public television network has released a promo video in which both British imports feature. Much of the footage comes from earlier seasons of each show, but the questions asked speak to the future.
"How will she manage?"
"Downton Abbey" gets the first question in footage that is all about Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) coping with the loss of her husband, Matthew, and raising their son on her own (with many servants, most likely).
While Mary looks nice and serene in the promo, that doesn't seem like a continued state for this woman.
"How did he do it?"
The second question posed is for "Sherlock." At the end of Season 2, Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) leapt from a rooftop to his supposed death. Except he didn't die. Instead, the great detective will be back and as brilliant »
Fans of BBC’s Sherlock will be beside themselves for a number of reasons at the moment: not least because they got to (sort of) see stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman reunited in The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug, but also because the third series is now less than two weeks away from hitting our screens.
For those wishing to go in blind, we suggest you turn away now, for the BBC has unveiled full plot synopses for each of the series’ three episodes, titled ‘The Empty Hearse’, ‘The Sign Of Three’ and ‘His Last Vow’:
‘In episode one of this new series, two years after the devastating effects of The Reichenbach Fall, Dr John Watson has got on with his life. New horizons, romance and a comforting domestic future beckon. But, with London under threat of a huge terrorist attack, Sherlock Holmes is about to rise from »

After nearly two years (and two Hobbit movies), Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are set to return for Sherlock season 3 on January 1st 2014 (January 19th 2014 on PBS). For months, we’ve been speculating about which stories Steven Moffat and writer Mark Gatiss would modernize for the next three-part series – after the show runner teased their plan with the words “Rat,” “Wedding,” and “Bow.” In season 2 Moffat pulled a similar stunt, as each of the words corresponded to a classic Sherlock Holmes story – “Woman,” “Hound,” and “Fall” eventually lined up with “A Scandal in Bohemia,” “The Hounds of Baskerville,” and “The Final Problem.” For season 3, fans pulled ...

Dublin-born Scott has been living and working in London for more than 10 years, racking up stage, TV and film credits, but it was his turn as Sherlock Holmes’ bete noire Moriarty in BBC’s “Sherlock” that brought him to international attention. The series airs in 200 countries, and although Moriarty was killed at the end of the season two, fans are hoping that he returns. “People are very attached to show,” he says.
Fast Out Of The Gate
Born in Dublin, Scott got an early start in the biz, taking drama classes at school and starring in Irish TV commercial before he was 10. His first feature role came in Irish film “Korea” (1995), when he was still a teenager, and he trod the boards at the Abbey Theater before moving to London in 2000, at age 24, to star in TV movie “Longitude” with Michael Gambon.

Let me start by saying yes, I know that Matt Smith will no longer be playing the role of The Doctor as of Christmas day and the broadcast of “The Time of the Doctor.” We will all be sad to see Matt Smith go and we will all be excited to see what Peter Capaldi brings to the role of our favorite Time Lord. But let’s forget about all that and concentrate on something else, namely this video:
Finished watching it? Pretty amazing, isn’t it? Sherlock Holmes is arguably one of the most brilliant individuals on the planet. It’s not outside the realm of possibility that he would see The Doctor as another mystery to solve. Who is he? Where does he come from and where does go? Why does he always seem to be on Earth in the times of greatest need? We’ve seen »
The wait is almost over, Sherlock fans. While the two-year hiatus has felt like a cruel eternity to just about everyone who watched Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock plummet to his faux-death in 'The Reichenbach Fall', consider this: fans in 1893 were forced to wait an entire decade for Arthur Conan Doyle to resurrect their hero on the page.
A decade. So with the gap put in perspective, and third series premiere 'The Empty Hearse' now confirmed to air on New Year's Day in the UK and January 19 in the Us, we can relax and look back on our favourite moments from the series so far, in chronological order...

Two years after the devastating effects of “The Reichenbach Fall,” Dr John Watson has got on with his life. New horizons, romance and a comforting domestic future beckon. But, with London under threat of a huge terrorist attack, Sherlock Holmes is about to rise from the grave with all the theatricality that comes so naturally to him. It’s what his best friend wanted more than anything, but for John Watson it might well be a case of ‘be careful what you wish for’! If Sherlock thinks everything will be just as he left it though, he’s in for a very big surprise »
Ron Burgundy and his motley crew of overzealous news anchors are back in theaters, with tracking suggesting the Paramount sequel, “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” will gross in the high $40 millions over five days.
“Anchorman 2,” which bows at 9 p.m. on Tuesday, will compete with Warner Bros.’ “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” for the three-day crown. Both are expected to land in the low-$30 millions Friday-Sunday.
Paramount bumped up “Anchorman 2″ by two days to give the film a headstart on an otherwise crowded pre-holiday frame.
In addition to “The Hobbit,” which enters its second Stateside outing with $80 million through Monday, Sony’s “American Hustle” and Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks” both expand nationwide on Friday after their limited openings last weekend. “Hustle” looks to fare better, with expectations in the high-to-mid teens; while “Banks,” which struggled in limited release, is expected to gross somewhere north of $10 million in three days. »

We’ve scanned the UK TV schedules over the next fortnight and circled a few new Christmas programmes you may enjoy…
Despite this being the time of year when television repeats aren't just tolerated, but welcome (if at no point in the next fortnight does Dermot Morgan get lost in a department store underwear aisle, or a snowman ride a motorbike through a Sussex field, then it just won't feel like Christmas), we've gone for brand new shows in the list below.
There's a selection of new drama, comedy and a few other bits and pieces you may wish to circle in your festive TV listings magazine... Merry Christmas.
Drama Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor
What is it? It's Doctor Who. Do you need to know anything else?
What’s this one about? This one-hour special is Matt Smith's farewell episode as the Doctor, »
On Tuesday, Dec. 17 (check local listings), PBS airs "How Sherlock Changed the World," a two-hour examination of the ways in which Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's late-19th-century fictional consulting detective Sherlock Holmes has had an impact on crime investigation right down to the present day.
Doyle's chief inspiration is believed to have been medical lecturer and forensic science pioneer Joseph Bell, whom Doyle met in 1877 when he went to work as Bell's clerk at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary in Scotland. Bell's method of using close observation and logic to come to conclusions impressed Doyle, himself a physician, who incorporated much of this into the character of Holmes.
For example, Holmes pioneered the use of ballistics, including bullet trajectory.
In the special, Jonathan Ferguson, curator of firearms for the Royal Armouries in the U.K., says, "Sherlock anticipates the abilities that modern forensic science has, that we can actually now »
Linda Cardellini has joined New Girl in a recurring role. She’ll play Jess‘ sister “who brings a real Springer energy to every situation”. I guess we’re about to understand why Jess sticks with Nick, despite all his dysfunction?
Kevin Zegers has joined the cast of Gracepoint, Fox’s remake of Broadchurch. The Transamerica and Gossip Girl hottie will play the young reporter who dives into the murder at the core of the series. I hope that turns out to be a key role in the remake, U.S. remakes of UK shows work well well when they deal with the differences between the two cultures. While Broadchurch dealt with UK tabloids, I hope Gracepoint takes on TV reporters who get big audiences from sensational coverage of violent crime.

The creators of Sherlock reveal secrets of series three to Digital Spy in a new video interview.
Sherlock stars talk series 3: "It's a great thing to revisit" - video
Moffat also speaks about bringing a "female perspective" to the series in the form of Amanda Abbington's Mary Morstan, while Gatiss also hints at the show's new menace - "the other really great villain in the Sherlock Holmes canon".
"It's a very modern idea - someone who is manipulating people through the media," says the writer of Lars Mikkelsen's villain Charles Augustus Magnussen.
Sherlock returns to UK screens with 'The Empty Hearse' on Wednesday, January 1 at 9pm on BBC One. The episode will premiere in the Us on Sunday, »
