Filming has now officially begun on the second series of Sherlock, starring Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch. And the BBC has announced just which stories will be arriving in this year’s run.
Steven Moffat, co-creator of the show along with Mark Gatiss, has revealed that we can expect A Scandal In Belgravia, The Hounds Of Baskerville and The Reichenbach Fall. And it’s the same three writers as last year who are penning the stories.
Thus, Stephen Thompson (who penned the recent Doctor Who adventure, The Curse Of The Black Spot), will take on Reichenbach, which is poised to be the series finale. Moffat, meanwhile is doing A Scandal In Belgravia, while Gatiss has taken onThe Hounds Of Baskerville.
It’s great to see, too, that Paul McGuigan, who directed two of the three adventures of Sherlock‘s maiden run, is back on helming duties this time around. And he’s being joined this time around by Toby Haynes, who has Being Human and Doctor Who on his CV.
Sherlock will return to our screens in the autumn.
Can’t recommend the three-episode series one enough. It was fantabulous. Also, does the BBC just keep Steven Moffat locked away in a closet basement? He writes everything for them. It’s a bit absurd.
