Great article in British television magazine Radio Times about BBC Sherlock series three published today.
Paul Jones has written a very comprehensive entitled – ‘Sherlock series 3, what do we know so far and what can we deduce?
He uses the three clue words given by Moffat and Gatiss (Rat, Wedding and Bow) to talk through what each episode of the new series might contain. I particularly like his idea of casting Timothy Spall as Charles Augustus Milverton!
There’s also this interesting quote from Martin Freeman about ‘That Suicide’ – “All the clues were on screen. It’s not going to be a cheat – everything that we saw on that final episode offers hints as to how he did it.”
Jones talks about episode one and how it will surely contain Colonel Moran, if truly based on Doyle’s The Empty House. I must admit, it’s one of things I’m most excited about. If there is a Sebastian Moran character, Moriarty’s right-hand-man, surely we have seen him before – but just don’t realise. Here’s a few mad theories from me – in The Blind Banker, Sherlock’s old friend who calls him in to investigate the case is called Sebastian. Could he re-appear as the modern-day Moran? Or, how about the Northern, larger-than-life chief inspector we encounter in The Fall? No one mentions his name but he is pivotal in Moriarty’s plan to have Sherlock arrested. He tells a reluctant Lestrade to “Bring him in, right now. Do it!” Rather than Moran being a military man, perhaps he is a bent copper taking back-handers from Moriarty.
Anyway, the article is great and well worth a read for any Sherlock fan. Just click this link…
