The BBC has released the first teaser trailer for Sherlock Season 3! I’m eagerly waiting for the resolution of how Sherlock faked his death, many theories were put trying to explain what happened, however, what would be the reaction of Watson and others when they find out that Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) is still alive?!
- Episode One
- Titled The Empty Hearse (a pun on Conan Doyle’s The Adventure of the Empty House) was written by co-creator and Mycroft Holmes actor, Mark Gatiss.
- Episode Two
- The Sign of Three (a twist on Conan Doyle’s The Sign of Four) was written by Stephen Thompson.
- Episode Three
- His Last Vow (a play on Conan Doyle’s His Last Bow) was written by co-creator Steven Moffat.
The villain in season 3 would be Charles Augustus Magnusson. will be played by Danish actor Lars Mikkelsen, who is the brother of Mads Mikkelsen, playing Hannibal in NBC series Hannibal.
Magnusson is thought to be based on Charles Augustus Milverton, the king of blackmailers, who appeared in a 1904 short story published in The Return Of Sherlock Holmes.
Sherlock Holmes can tell a software designer by his tie and an airline pilot by his thumb. He has a unique analytical brain and, unlike anyone else in the world, he staves off boredom by solving crimes. When a chance encounter brings soldier John Watson 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.
Enjoy the trailer below:
In season three, Sherlock returns but will things ever be the same again?
