The final episode of BBC detective drama 'Sherlock' is heaped with praise.
Sherlock wrapped up in style as the final episode of the BBC detective drama aired last night and sent shockwaves of excitement throughout fans and critics. It's barely believable that after months of excruciating anticipation, the third and final episode of Steven Moffat's drama has come and gone.
It's Unanimous: The 'Sherlock' Finale Was A Big Hit.
Though the show's 8.8 million viewer average represented a fall from the gradually decreasing levels of the previous two episodes, the drama still; managed to net a sizeable audience with enough glowing reviews to ensure plenty of additional iPlayer views.
The actress has joined the 'Sherlock' cast alongside her partner, Martin Freeman.
The 1st January draws nearer and so does the prospect of the BBC's mystery series Sherlock returning to the small screens. In the third series we'll finally find out how Sherlock managed to avoid death and see Watson's romantic encounter with his real-life girlfriend, Amanda Abbington.
Martin Freeman & Amanda Abbington Ended Up Working Together On 'Sherlock.'
"Don't c**p where you eat," goes the famous saying and indeed it's generally accepted that you shouldn't mix work and romance. So what happens when your actual partner becomes your on-screen squeeze? The 39 year-old actress spoke to The Independent about what it was like invading the everlasting bromance of her lover, Martin Freeman, and Benedict Cumberbatch, AKA Sherlock.
The actor has a full plate at the moment.
Martin Freeman may not be your typical Hollywood A-lister but the 42 year-old British actor has worked himself into two franchises that seem to magnetise particularly rabid fans. Freeman reprises his role of Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug at this weekend's eagerly-anticipated worldwide release and also looks forward to accompanying Benedict Cumberbatch in BBC crime drama Sherlock in January.
Martin Freeman Is More Famous Than Ever, But Has The Fans To Deal With.
His most recent roles as Watson to Cumberbatch's Sherlock and Bilbo have transformed the actor from a lowly salesman in The Office to global fame and the first name on fans' lips at comic-con events. However, the actor has revealed that he feels more famous for playing Watson instead of the plucky hobbit on a valiant quest.
The exciting new trailer heralds an exciting new season.
The BBC’s decision to reboot classic adventure franchises like Dr. Who and Sherlock has been nothing short of a phenomenon. With millions tuning in to see the Doctor’s 50th anniversary, and even more expected for the Christmas special, Sherlock is set to make a comeback with season 3 on New Year’s Day – and it’s got the same dedicated fan base as any of the BBC’s strong drama contingent.
The crux of season three, as evidenced in the new fast-twitch, exhilarating trailer, featuring Benedict Cumberbatch’s now-iconic vocal chords, is the faking of the mercurial detective’s death. "I don't care how you faked it. I wanna know why," asks Watson; Sherlock’s faithful yet oft-inquisitive partner in fighting crime, played by Martin Freeman.
