Sherlock season 4 premiere date revealed. Well, Kind of!

The season 3 of Sherlock has came to an end. The fans are back on tumblr and twitter complaining and orgasming over Sherlock’s return and the wedding and also at Charles Augustus Magnussen. Many fans think and also believe that there was no need to kill CAM. You could’ve simply thrown him in jail and cut his contact with the outside world and that would’ve been the only thing that mattered. Instead, Sherlock shot him in the head, he did it because he had Mary’s secrets in his mind palace that could destroy both John’s marriage and his life. So, if observe closely, Sherlock is not helping Mary, he actually killed CAM to save John’s marriage. He can’t see John in pain and suffering again because he knows what the past 2 years has been for John when Sherlock faked his death and started dismantling Moriarty’s network.

The first episode is called “The Empty Hearse” in which Sherlock returns to London because there’s an underground terrorist network and Mycroft wants it taken care of. He comes back and crashes John’s wedding proposal, Startles Molly, Gavin…Graham…Greg is so happy to see him back, Scares the shit out of Hudders.

The second episode is called “The sign of Three” in which John and Mary are getting married and Sherlock has to deliver a best man speech in front of a crowd. In his best man speech, he also solves a murder, well, attempted murder. Btw, i love the way he walks out of the wedding but it’s a shame he didn’t get to dance.

The third and final episode is called “His last Vow” in which Shezza locks horns with CAM and gets shot by Mary. He realizes, Mary is a victim and kills CAM in the end to save Mary’s life and John’s wedding. By killing CAM, Shezza is apparently punished by his brother and the British secret services to go undercover in Eastern Europe. When the flight takes off, every digital screen in England shows a graphic picture of Moriarty and asking, “Did you miss me?”

The last episode was aired on January 12th in the United Kingdom. The fans can’t wait two more years to see their favorite villain back, so, Sherlock now has a Christmas day special episode. The hard working executives has put the production in a fast track mode and they are looking at  Christmas day premiere. “The BBC is desperate for a Sherlock Christmas Day special this year. It wants its biggest guns ready,” Steven Moffat stated that he wanted the (new) series to be made as quickly as possible. But, we all know The Moff and Gatiss wants to see us suffer. The network heads share this sentiment as a Christmas special would mean a phenomenal rating potential.

The ideas for the fourth and the fifth season has already been sketched out. The Moff also said, “Sherlock started very well, the second series did better than the first and now the third is doing better than the second … It shows the benefits of starvation – put things on less often!”

The biggest problem is the availability of Cumberbatch and Freeman. Both are working in the third installment of The Hobbit and are very busy in filming. So far, Season 3 has created record ratings and His last Vow pulled a rabbit out of its hat and scored a whooping 8.8 million viewers, which counts as 32.1% of the share.

Sherlock came to an end in India on 17th of January. The numbers India look quite good too! Sherlock series 3 premieres Sunday, January 19, on PBS at 10 p.m. eastern/pacific in the United States.

Sherlock: His Last Vow will melt the entire internet! *SPOILER FREE*

Forget the ambiguous solution to the Fall. Put the baggy, mawkish wedding episode behind you. Because Sunday night’s Sherlock finale is a scintillating return to form that will melt the Internet and drain the Monday-morning water-cooler within half an hour. His Last Vow ticks all the boxes. For Sherlock Holmes sticklers, the episode is based solidly on an original Arthur Conan Doyle story and also makes meaningful use of plot devices and characters from elsewhere in the canon.

Sherlock fans will be squeezing throughout at twists, turns and revelations – and the cliffhanger ending might just make their heads explode. Meanwhile, general viewers in search of a smart, thrilling adventure and great performances will be satisfied too.

Lars Mikkelsen manages to be simultaneously magnetic and repellent as master blackmailer Charles Augustus Magnussen, the man who believes he can own anyone he chooses. It’s a scene-stealing performance from the Danish star better known to fans of The Killing as mayoral candidate Troels Hartmann. Look out for the shockingly casual way in which he desecrates Sherlock’s Baker Street sitting room.

In an interview earlier this year, Martin Freeman joked that “the show’s not called John yet”, but after this episode it almost feels like it should be. The idea that Dr Watson is simply the everyman foil to the more flamboyant characters is called into question with a neat bit of analysis of John’s psyche. If there’s a let down, it’s the denouement of the main story, which serves Mikkelsen’s character badly and makes Sherlock appear rather naive – but that will quickly be blasted out of viewers’ brains by the mind-boggling final moments.

I will be posting an episode by episode analysis soon after the season comes to an end. Until then, bis bald (german for see you soon).
