Sherlock to return for third series

We missed this last week, you may have too - Steven Moffats BBC series Sherlock will return for a third series next year.

Ahead of series two, co-creator Steven Moffat told BBC News there was "no guarantee we'll be bringing him back", of course those who know how Moffat works, and weren't fooled! :)

Last on Sunday night, Moffat wrote on Twitter "Of course there's going to be a third series - it was commissioned at the same time as the second. Gotcha!". Moffat's co-creator Mark Gatiss also wrote on Twitter "Gotcha! And of course there'll be a third series!" - But who do they think they "got", not the hardcore fans!

Conan Doyle's The Final Problem, published in 1893, ended with Holmes and his arch-enemy Professor Moriarty falling to their deaths at the Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland. Conan Doyle later resurrected his hero, and so is Moffat, although we already know he isn't dead, but how did he survive?

Sherlock series three will be on our screens early 2013.


My one complaint about the series is the end is not dissimilar to Doctor Who, and the Batman movie series. I look forward to Sherlocks return though.

Thanx to Joetoons and JamesGray for the heads up :)

How did he survive ? Easy ! He asked the forensic girl (don't remenber the name) to help him create a body double, like Adler had done in the first episode. Then he changed clothes with it, and somehow while Watson attention was focused on him at the top of the building he swapped it (or swapped it before) Then after the double falls, Holmes bumps into Watson on a bike, Watson is dizzied and unable to recognize that the body is not Holmes'.
More or less...

Dark Knight did do it best. I can't wait for Dark Knight Rises.
