Cumberbatch: ‘Sherlock’ special and Season 4 will be ‘just phenomenal’

Posted Filed under

Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed that next year’s special will see Sherlock Holmes in a situation where he is “really pressed”.

Shooting on the special will begin in January 2015, with Season 4 shooting later next year.

Cumberbatch told Empire: “I can’t give any plot away… but [the writers’] pitch for the Christmas special and the series beyond that is just phenomenal.”

He teased: “We’ve never seen [Sherlock] being really pressed yet, so that will be interesting.”
