BBC's Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman starts filming season three on Monday

Cumberbatch and Freeman

Rejoice Sherlock fans! Deadline is reporting that Sherlock had its first season three read-through yesterday and that filming on the hit BBC show will start Monday. It was a little iffy for a while when production was going to start since stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have been busy working on a couple of films you may have heard of (do I really need to list THE HOBBIT, STAR TREK, or THE WORLD'S END? I didn't think so) but filming is definitely set to start. Two of the episodes will be filmed before summer and the third episode in the season will shoot sometime afterwards.

However, one person will not be back for the third season. Director Paul McGuigan announced this through his Twitter over the weekend:

McGuigan is currently set to direct the revamped FRANKENSTEIN film that may star Daniel Radcliffe and is also working on THE MAN WHO with Cumberbatch about Beatle's manager Brian Epstein. Deadline has learned that Jeremey Lovering (IN FEAR) and Colm McCarthy (DR. WHO, RIPPER STREET) will be directing two of the new episodes of Sherlock, but there isn't any news about a third director yet.

I'm a huge fan of Sherlock and anything BBC. If you haven't watched it you are missing out on one of the best shows on television. And with how the last season ended I know I'm not the only one that wants to know what's going to happen next at 221B Baker Street.

Extra Tidbit: Are you a Cumberbatch fan? Before he started getting roles in big Hollywood films he appeared in two episodes of the BBC comedy Nathan Barley and he also shows up at the end of the British film FOUR LIONS.

This is one of the best shows to exist. Outstanding performances from both leads. And it's supporting cast is so top notch. Can't wait to see these.

Very very good. Series 3 of Luther is wrapped up. Now it is Sherlock's turn. And there will be a Series 4 as well.

I have some serious reservations about no Paul G. His direction really pushed his episodes, including the best episode of the entire show (ASIP), into cinematic territory. TRF, directed by someone else was soooo cheese-ball it was hard for me to get invested at times. The actors, especially Martin Freeman, seriously bring it. The scripts are decent. Let's hope the directors don't let the fans down.

This is one of the best versions of sherlock there has ever been (next to jeremy brett of course). Great show, made the character new again and Cumberbatch and Freeman are excellent. Also congrats to Moffat and co for the show (and dr who of course).

Hate to do this but....

I know movies and tv shows are completely different, but it's always fun to compare the Robert Downey Jr Sherlock movies to the BBC Sherlock. It's interesting that, despite being in the present day and completely modernized, the BBC Sherlock is much more faithful to the spirit of the books and Sherlock himself. The movies aren't bad by any stretch, but I've been spoiled by the brilliance of the show. It's on a whole other level. Can't wait for the next series!

Amazing freakin' show

It should also be mentioned that Sherlock's written by Stephen Moffat, who wrote some of the best episodes of the revamped DR. WHO ("Blink", anyone?) and is the current showrunner for that series. I'm not surprised both Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch have more work than they can handle. They're both great actors.

Moffat did write some of the best NewWho episodes. Sadly, most of those were before he took over at the helm. The last two seasons were fun rides but overall a clunky, zany mess, nearly every adventure being a possible end to the universe. His Doctor is a Marty Stu a lot of times and I see that potentially happening with Sherlock, especially in the Scandal episode of last season. However, I'm very hopeful that for the new season of Doctor Who he's planned out a strong arc and cohesive vision

Love Sherlock - best version of the character since Jeremy Brett. Dr Who is my favorite thing on the planet, and i agree moffat had some kick ass episodes, but nothing beats the Russ T Davies years and Tennant. (although the Tom Baker's run is damn good too). But man, its all good. To each his own when it comes to dr who! so hard to say who is better etc.

PBS has aired Sherlock in the past. The second season was on PBS last May, about four months after it originally aired in the UK.
