Benedict Cumberbatch has discussed his hopes for the long-term future of Sherlock.

Cumberbatch told Empire: “I’d like us to finish on a high, but we’ll do it until we don’t want to do it anymore. As long as the ideas are still there and the audience still wants it…”

He added: “I’d love to do it into old age, I really would.”
