So to repeat a question I asked some time ago in this thread: Should I fill the wait until Sherlock's third series arrives with the Kenneth Branagh version of Wallander?

I know the BBC version of Wallander isn't to everyone's taste, but I have enjoyed the series since day one.

I'm waiting for series four, which I believe will be the final series, consisting of three episodes.

I read an interview the other day with Benedict Cumberbatch. Don't have the link handy, but he said he's trying to do what he can to get Season 3 to air the same day in both England and America. He knows the details of how Sherlock survived his fall are going to be everywhere online as soon as the episode airs, spoiling it for American viewers who normally have to wait months until the episodes air here. Frankly, I don't see why the show can't air in both countries on the same day.

If BBC America was showing Sherlock, I would agree. As it's shown on PBS, it will probably be shown sometime after it's screened in the UK, but as for the same day, I can't see that happening.

That's what I don't understand, though. Why couldn't they air it the same day? I don't know much of anything about how television broadcasts work, but can't BBC One just say they want it aired on the same day?

Rather peculiarly they ran an advert at the end of the series two re-run on friday nite in the uk. Im assuming this was it?

People seem to be expecting it soon but i suspect they are still editing series three and january is still the screening date.

Anyone got an update beyond this??

I believe as of a week or maybe two weeks ago, they were just beginning production of the third episode.

Thanks michael. So its possible we could be looking at a possible late autumn screening, unless they want to drag it out to january?

As best I can tell (not that it's a reliable judgment), the production of these episodes seems to more or less be about the same time of year as when the last episodes were shot. So it's possible it could be another January premiere if they are sticking with a similar schedule. Not that that means anything for us American viewers, who will probably have to wait an additional four months or so from whenever they air in the UK. LOL!

Since it's Saturday, tonight will be my traditional Sherlock BBC night whereas I watch whatever episode is up next while eating Thai red curry and Wonton soup. I do lead an exciting life.

I don't know which is worse: the lawsuit or the fact that the Daily Mail is reporting it. Oh wait. It's both. At least someone's talking about the show, though the Mail and the FSM board are equal in their time spent NOT talking about the show's music. wink

Aren't all of Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories (and therefore all of their characters) in public domain?

In the Dr Who "Image of the Fendahl" commentary track from a few years ago, Wanda Ventham discusses her son's burgeoning acting career. I just learned her son is Benedict Cumberbatch. D'oh!

Yep.



From The Daily Mirror:

"Mum and dad Wanda Ventham, well known actress of television, and her husband Tim Carlton an actor, show off their newborn baby son. Benedict (Cumberbatch) , Ben for short, was born at the Queen Charlotte’s Hospital in West London, weighing nine pounds and 2 ounces. 22nd July 1976."
