This time the case in question relates to what it is about the PBS show’s cinematography that makes it so good to watch.
Sherlock: The Abominable Bride won the Emmy for Outstanding Television Movie at the 68th annual ceremony in Los Angeles Sunday.
Written by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat and directed by Douglas Mackinnon, The Abominable Bride stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the brilliant detective Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as trusty sidekick Watson. While the overarching Sherlock series takes place in modern times, The Abominable Bride is notable for being largely set against the Victorian backdrop of the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories.
The Sherlock duo are looking dark and stylish in season 4. PBS Masterpiece released the first publicity photo from the next season of the BBC sensation, with stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman well-coifed and ready for a night on the town. Producers have teased a dark season so perhaps its only appropriate the image is rather dark as well (in fact, writer-actor Mark Gatiss has described the next season as the “best one we’ve done, it’s very big chewy stuff, meaty”).
Sherlock is set to return for its first full series in almost three years and the creators promise that the show will be back darker than ever.
While speaking at the EW lounge at San Diego Comic-Con, the creative team behind the BBC hit was shy about giving too many details about the upcoming episodes, but did offer a slight tease. “It’s no spoiler: We explicitly said it is the darkest season yet and still obviously full of laughs and fun, but is generally tonally dark,” said co-creator Mark Gatiss, who also stars as Mycroft Holmes.

If you can’t make it to the Con, or are overwhelmed by the never-ending possibilities provided, EW hit the convention floor during preview night to find some must-have items from Funko, Entertainment Earth, LEGO, Hasbro, and many, many more.Star Wars: The Black Series — Jyn Erso Pack
Comic-Con is afoot, and Sherlock fans are in for a treat.
It’s been almost three months since Rachel Talalay began shooting the premiere of the new season of Sherlock, and even now she is still on a high from working with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman on the beloved PBS Masterpiece sleuth series. “The fact that it takes three years to get them together long enough to be on the series and then be invited to direct it is phenomenal,” she says. “It’s a tremendous experience on every level.”
Sherlock landed at Comic-Con on Sunday: Panelists Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock Holmes), Amanda Abbington (Mary Watson), Mark Gatiss (co-creator/executive producer/writer), Steven Moffat (co-creator/executive producer/writer), and Sue Vertue (producer) all boarded the stage at Hall H to discuss the mystery drama, which centers on the titular crime solver and his partner Dr. John Watson (Martin Freeman).
Rachel Talalay has experience directing films (1995’s Tank Girl) and TV shows (Doctor Who, The Flash). So, it makes sense she was recruited to oversee the forthcoming season premiere of the Benedict Cumberbatch- and Martin Freeman-starring Sherlock, the PBS Masterpiece show which routinely attempts to match the scope and ambitions of its big screen brethren.
The first photo of Sherlock season 4 shows Benedict Cumberbatch and a hound. This immediately makes us want more. Can there be a Cumberbatch-with-dogs wall calendar please? Photos of the Sherlock star with various mutts and breeds solving crimes for every month of the year?
Plus, we now have so many questions: What’s Sherlock telling the dog to do? How involved will the dog be in season 4? Is Watson jealous? The master detective apparently had a dog named Toby in the books. Is this Toby? He/she looks like a Toby.
