Sherlock Holmes Season 3: Giveaway, News, and Trailer

*** BOOK GIVEAWAY. Make a comment below about SHERLOCK to be entered in a drawing for 5 copies of The Sherlock FILES. ***

A companion book, The Sherlock Files, has been published to accompany the BBC One and PBS broadcast of SHERLOCK. Author Guy Adams covers the first two seasons in vivid detail through fictional excerpts from Dr. Watson's blog, Inspector Lestrade's police reports, and Sherlock's notes. Interviews with stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, and with writers/co-creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat are also included.

MASTERPIECE on PBS will air the third season of SHERLOCK beginning on Sunday, January 19, 2014 for three consecutive Sunday Nights.
 
Nearly 11 million viewers tuned into the second season of Sherlock, which ended with one of the most shocking cliffhangers in television history. Fans flocked to the internet to speculate about Sherlock’s “demise,” and express their eagerness to find out what happens next.

"We are hugely excited about this next series of Sherlock, and have worked closely with our partners, MASTERPIECE and PBS, to bring these episodes to U.S. audiences in January," says Sue Vertue, executive producer for Sherlock and Hartswood Films, which coproduces Sherlock with MASTERPIECE and BBC Wales for BBC One. "We promise our fans that Season 3 is worth waiting for."

Emmy® and Golden Globe®-nominated and winner of a Peabody Award, Sherlock has been a television sensation since the first season aired in 2010, with critics calling it "triumphant" (Hollywood Reporter), "crackling with imagination" (San Francisco Chronicle), and "seduction through deduction" (Los Angeles Times).

Sherlock helped make megastars of Cumberbatch and Freeman, whose portrayals of the famous crime fighting duo USA Today described as “two of the best performances you’ll see anywhere.”

As in previous seasons, titles for the three episodes are pegged to a classic Sherlock Holmes title by Arthur Conan Doyle—delightfully, wittily, and briskly updated, of course.

I love the modern takes on Sherlock that have popped up on both sides of the Atlantic. It is intriguing that Sherlock and Watson remain so timeless.

Terribly long wait. I have to see the last episode of season two again - wasn't he free-falling off a rooftop? But we know perfectly well Sherlock will never die...don't we?

I have loved Sherlock since I could read.

It is hard to voice more enthusiasm than previous commentators, but I am SO glad the series is back. I rewatch and rewatch the previous ones just to keep the thrill there...and now, the chance to have more is making my Thanksgiving thanks have an extra category!

The Sherlock Holmes stories have always been a joy and delight. This series is one of the few things on film that I have enjoyed as much as the books, although Basil Rathbone as Sherlock has always been hard to beat. Love the opportunity to maybe win this book! Thanks!

I was dubious about modern update when series first started, but love this.

Andrea said...

I like many versions of Sherlock Holmes, but I am particularly fond of this BBC version. I love everything about it: the writing, the acting, the cinematography,etc. It is very moving and smart, and I am very excited for the next season.
Thanks for the giveaway; I hope I'm lucky enough to get picked.

It's great that a schedule has been nailed down for the upcoming series of Sherlock Holmes, although like anyone else I wish more than three episodes had been produced. Has it been mentioned anywhere as to how many seasons of Sherlock there will be? I know that the Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes series went on for a fair number of episodes, although the current series looks like it costs more to produce.

Kayla Ramos said...

Sherlock is my absolute favourite show, and Sherlock Holmes is my absolute favourite fictional character ever! I'd love to get a copy of this book!

castielock said...

Using an empty hearse to reveal the UK air date is nothing short of theatrical. Mofftiss really are two of the biggest Sherlock fans.

Absolutely the best re-make of a classic on TV. I can't wait to watch the new episodes.
