Martin Freeman has confirmed that his real-life partner Amanda Abbington will remain part of the Sherlock cast as Watson’s wife Mary for “for the foreseeable future”.
The actor told The Telegraph: “While we play fast and loose with the original stories, we generally follow the trajectory of what Conan Doyle did.”
SPOILER WARNING FOR THE ORIGINAL STORIES
He explained: “So he [Watson] gets married, and then Mary dies – so at some point presumably she’ll die.”
The actor also revealed in the new interview that filming in early 2015 “looks pretty likely”, apparently indicating that he doesn’t expect this to be for a full three-part series.
