The Game is Afoot: Watch the Sherlock Season 3 Trailer

When I was a young blogger, I swore I wouldn’t write predictable headlines like “The Game is Afoot: Watch the Sherlock Season 3 Trailer!” Now I’m a middle-aged blogger with deadline pressures and nothing is as satisfying and as reassuring as a predictable headline. Thank you for your indulgence.

Do you watch Sherlock? Of course you do. The BBC One crime drama starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, which places Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective and his trusted companion Watson in contemporary London and is one of the best things on television. It’s one of the very few shows on television my entire family watches together (the other was Firefly). Famously conceived by Doctor Who writers Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat while they were commuting back and forth from Cardiff by train, Sherlock has had only two brief seasons so far, in 2010 and 2012, with one episode each season being written by Gatiss, Moffat, and Stephen Thompson.

The worst thing about Sherlock has been that there’s so very little of it, with only three 90-minute episodes per season, and a long drought between seasons. First time I watched Season One on Blu-ray, in fact, I kept checking the box to make sure I hadn’t missed a disk.

Season Two ended — naturally — on a killer cliffhanger, with Sherlock faking his suicide while Watson looked on. American fans in particular have been waiting impatiently for Season Three, which is slowly wrapping production in the UK. Two of the three episodes have been completed and on August 2 the brief Season Three teaser below was finally released by the BBC. No air date has been given, so for now it’s all we have. Enjoy.

We, my wife and I that is, love Sherlock. Amazingly, we also love Elementary, and think the Robert Downey, Jr. movies are pretty entertaining too (though not on the same quality level as either TV series, or RDJ’s other current serial franchise, Iron Man).
Of the two shows, I prefer Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock, though Jonny Lee Miller is fine too (go back and watch him in Trainspotting, nearly unrecognizable), but I like the intricate plotting of Elementary.

[…] with Sherlock Holmes (see the trailer for Season Three of BBC One’s adaptation here), and the Tales of King Arthur and his noble knights (examples from the past two weeks here and […]
