The shoot for three new episodes is currently in its latter stages, having been shifted around to accommodate Martin Freeman’s shooting commitments for The Hobbit movies (Freeman flies back to Middle Earth in September, once Sherlock has wrapped). And a consequence of that is that the new episodes aren’t heading to our screens until early next year (the first series screened in the summer of 2010).Sorry to be the bearer of bad news on this one, but it appears that the transmission of Sherlock series 2 is being pushed back to 2012.
This was confirmed after the repeat of the final episode of Sherlock series one, The Great Game, on BBC One last night. We’d already understood that it was highly unlikely we’d see Sherlock fit into BBC One’s schedules this side of the new year, but the continuity announcement confirmed that the show wouldn’t be back until 2012 (to be fair, it was never officially announced it'd be on our screens in 2011, though).
On the upside, from the near-20 minutes of footage we’ve seen for the show so far, series 2 is right up there with the quality of the first…
