I got all excited about a headline I saw today. Sherlock Season 4 “Closer”! Did they really mean closer to release? Did I miss something? Nope, but Mark Gatiss tells Radio Times that they’re closer to getting a date to start filming.
This is the problem with a show with fantastically talented and popular creators and actors. Between Stephen Moffat and Mark Gatiss working on Doctor Who, Gatiss’s own acting commitments, and Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch’s television and film projects, well to say that scheduling is “challenging” is a vast understatement. Personally, I’m just glad I’m not responsible for figuring out how to get all these awesome people together…wait. Who am I kidding? I would love to be responsible for getting all these people together (Bonus points if I can be there when they all are in the same place together).
Normally, I would say “be patient”. However, I know it is already too late. The fandom went mad before 1900, and it doesn’t show signs of changing. Truthfully, we wouldn’t have it any other way (Okay, we’d take more Sherlock. I thought that was a given though.) Scarily, I nearly scrolled by this one with out noticing anything had been changed.
‘Til next time,
