A Sherlock Community
Sunday 9:00 PM on BBC


The BBC has released the first teaser for Season 3 of Sherlock, and perhaps the most shocking thing about it isn't that Benedict Cumberbatch's title character is alive, but that Watson (Martin Freeman) has grown a mustache in his absence. Grief does weird things to people.

Watch the teaser below and then hit the comments to tell us how excited you are for the new episodes! Or, you know, discuss your theories regarding what's going to happen when Watson realizes his BFF isn't dead after all.

Thank you very much, I must say this is the best Sherlock Holmes shoe I ever seen and season 3 is really going to be the best, I can't wait to see it

The most shocking thing about it definitely isn't that Sherlock is alive, given that he was revealed to be alive in the season 2 finale and the show can't exist without him.

That was a trailer? It wasn't even a minute long.

Still not sure how people don't find this show insulting. The ridiculous plot devices, lame story elements and even some of the acting.. is way too much; yet everybody loves it. Jeremy Brett is Sherlock Holmes and if you want to remake it, as a modern show, then do like "Elementary" - at least. I know this will fall on deaf ears, so I'll just stop here. ;-s

While I understand I'm very much in the minority for genuinely enjoying Elementary, I find the fact you place it on a higher pedestal than Sherlock downright disturbing.

Meh, I don't; don't even like Elementary in particular, but when something happens in Sherlock - just because the director or the writer(s?) thought it would be smart, without any logical path leading to it (and without it being practically possible) - we have to keep watching and think of it as part of the story. Sorry, can't do that.

I like both equaly Elemtary and Sherlock, but still i prefer old Russian Sherlock Holmes series.

Elementary? Seriously? The series' lack of respect for the source material is patent. Jeremy Brett is quite good, I agree, but I have to disagree with everything you said about this adaptation.

I meant it as in I can understand an adaptation taking some different path in Elementary, but with Sherlock we're led to believe he's the old with the new and - while some of it can be brilliant - other parts, that make me want to just dismiss the show entirely, we're spoon fed some dialogue that's supposed to set things right: when something completely different (and bull :)) is happening on screen.

I hate spending time discussing it, but thanks for the interest in my comment. I'd have to re-watch for the specifics, been a while.. Kinda messed up, also, that I'm not following through with it now. :-\

As yet unconfirmed. There are talkings of the airdate being revealed during/after the filming of episode three, so if that is true, we should know by late August/early September.

The music got me excited, the trailer was disappointing to say the least, but I'm still excited for series 3.

More Sherlock at last! Best show of the last 5 years or so ( between this show and Breaking Bad) ! BBC knows how to produce quality TV for sure!

Now if only they could start making series that run longer than 6 episodes so you don't have to wait 46 weeks to see what happens next!

That was disappointingly brief. It's still managed to up my excitement levels though. And what's with that 'tash? I'm not a fan!

The thing that got me most excited in that trailer wasn't actually anything they showed. It was hearing that music again.

Must be some kind of record. It's worse than Breaking Bad (13 months for 13 episodes) and The IT crowd (17 months for 6 episodes).

Oh wait...The Sopranos had a 21-month break before the final season, a 15-month break before season 5, and a 17-month break before season 4. I'm glad I didn't watch that show until after it had finished.

The Wire had a 21-month break between seasons 3 and 4 too, but I didn't watch that until after it had all finished. I did have to wait on The Sopranos, and it was hell waiting for that final season, especially since that first half of the final season was a big drop in quality.

What about Stargate...it's still on it's break for new season and episodes :P:P:P (of course it's a joke...or is it??....)

I'm very split on the hope that they'll finish off the story from Universe, but part of me wants to leave it a mystery and move the series into a whole new direction.

John has gone to the Magnum P.I. side where you can't have too much stach!
Reply
Flag
Maybe he should kill it on tv like Tom Selleck did on Conan O'Brien's show. Some things just should not exist.
Reply

Or maybe the Magnum P.I virus is contagious and all the main characters in the show will suddenly have a mustasch with the exception of one character (The walking mustaschs o.O). Geez imagine Sherlock with a stasch *shivers*.
Can only agree with you Silver some things should not exist and most probably be killed with fire if they did, maybe Johnny boy will lose it maybe he keeps it but at least he wasn't killed to be reborn as a new character who just had to look completely identical to John Watson with the exception of a mustasch... The Magnum P.I virus can do that (Mean it happened to Mac in Magnum P.I :P).

It is ridiculous how excited I am over 25 seconds of... Mrs Hudson washing dishes, Molly looking in the mirror and Lestrade and Mycroft doing... nothing.
Ah well, I guess this fandom has been waiting far too long.
And why did Lestrade donate his hair to John's upper lip? Why?

Oh, I'm sorry, do you just go around growing your own mustache? Some of us have neither the time nor the means to just sprout one without the aid of another man's hair.

Too much excitement. This is one of the very few shows I can't stop thinking about during its off season.

This is excellent news! But do not want to spoil myself... so not watching LOL!

you have no idea what you are missing. All those plot points I spotted there, the clues, the wonderful jokes now ruined, the amazing action scene with Mycroft,Mrs Hudson's hilarious secret activities, boy you're into quite the bigger treat when you will watch the actual show.

The sooner the final seson is here the sooner it will be over. If that's not an argument for having your cake and eating it too, I dunno what is...

John... John... John! We all know about the stages of grief... but I don't think growing that moustache is permissible, under any circumstances, and will not be tolerated.

Agreed - I watched this short teaser 5 times ... Totally giddy...
I think an average person would be mad at Sherlock but Watson is just a better man and he'll just be happy to have his mate back

No way, the first thing he's going to do is punch him in the face. Then he'll be happy he's back.
