Moffat confirms planning on Sherlock S4/S5

The third season of Sherlock wraps up this week in the UK (coming to TV One as part of their new season, so “soon”), marked by a spcial gala screening of the final episode. Producer and writer Steven Moffat took the opportunity to share some exciting news about the series: “Rather excitingly, Mark [Gatiss] and I, for no particular reason, we just got out of the rain and sat at the top of the production bus […] and we just started plotting out what we could do in the future. […] And we plotted out the whole of series four and five … The ideas we had that day, I thought were the best we’ve ever had” Continue reading »

Here’s a fan’s pretty well produced short crossover story where two of the BBC’s characters paths cross.

“Months after an encounter with a mysterious ‘Doctor’, Sherlock becomes obsessed with discovering more about this impossible man… until the man makes an unexpected return.”

In anticipation of both the Doctor Who Christmas Special and the Third Series of Sherlock, I created a small crossover story. Though it may not be perfect, I’m still pretty happy with the results.

Hope you enjoy!

Sherlock

UKTV – Mondays from 3 December, 8.30pm

Sherlock Holmes was always a modern man – it’s the world that got old. Now he’s back as he should be: edgy, contemporary, difficult and dangerous, as award-winning actor Benedict Cumberbatch shows him in a new, contemporary light. Sherlock can tell a software designer by his tie, an airline pilot by his thumb. He has a unique analytical brain unlike anyone else in the world and staves off boredom by solving crimes. When a chance encounter brings soldier John Watson (Martin Freeman) into Sherlock’s life, it’s apparent the two men couldn’t be more different, but Sherlock’s intellect coupled with John’s pragmatism soon forge an unbreakable alliance. Across three thrilling, scary, action-packed and highly entertaining television movies, Sherlock and John navigate a maze of cryptic clues and lethal killers to get at the truth. With sparkling scripts and unforgettable performances from the two leads, this is Sherlock for a new generation.
