It seems as Steve Moffat is taking a page from his other popular BBC Series, Doctor Who, and turning it for Sherlock. According to a recent interview in the Telegraph, Martin Freeman has stated when we will see more Sherlock. If you are fan of Doctor Who you know that each Christmas there is a special holiday episode. In 2015, still a long time to wait, we will get a “Sherlock Christmas Special”.
Freeman said, “looks pretty likely”. If that’s going to be a special - I’m speaking off-message here; if this was New Labour I’d get fired - I think that might be for next Christmas. A Christmas special. That’s what I understand”.
That doesn’t mean another season/ series, but at this point we’ll take it. Both Martin Freeman and Sherlock himself Benedict Cumberbatch will appear in The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies this coming holiday season.
