Sherlock Season Three Trailer Is Finally Here And Is Chock Full Of Brooding Benedict Cumberbatch

If you’re the least bit Anglophile in your teevee watching, you’ve been having a nervous breakdown as you’ve waited TWO YEARS for “Sherlock” to return. The modern reboot, starring the ethereal uglypretty Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock and the not-at-all-Hobbity-here-thank-god Martin Freeman as Watson, is finally finally here.


Season Two ended with Sherlock faking his own death because Moriarty – oh, for fuck’s sake. Just go watch Seasons One and Two. It’s all of six episodes and then you’ll understand the whole death-fakery. Season Three starts two years later, and Sherlock pops back up not dead, just like Jesus, but is super dismayed and confused to find out that Watson has moved on with his life instead of just rending his garments and living alone in Baker Street in squalor. Watson did, however, grow that unfortunate moustache that Watson always had in the old movies.


Listen, BBC. This is a modern reboot. It is set now-ish. There is therefore no reason whatsoever to saddle Watson with that bushy caterpillar lip. But otherwise we are mighty grateful, BBC, that you’ve finally thrown us a bone with this trailer. There’s some foreboding music and some intimation that there’s a terror plot and there’s Sherlock being Sherlock and Martin Freeman being really mad, ostensibly about the death-faking but probably really about that awful moustache.

Photos and vid clips and other pictures of Martin Freeman with unfortunate facial hair over at BBC One. Get on it.

    Yay! I’m all set to fire up the bittorrent client and let Stephen Moffat know that I will hurt his family if the stream of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Who episodes ever gets that clogged up again.

    Perhaps Watson is just taking part in Mo-vemember?

    I have cancelled all my New Year’s plans so I can watch this repeatedly when it comes out on the Chinese streaming sites on December 31. : – P

      Er… I mean until this is aired on PBS in the United States some time in February after a stupid pledge month.

      Please tell me how to do this.

    I’m fairly certain the only thing keeping my wife from flying to the UK to watch it as it airs is a lack of funds for international flights.

    Okay, breathe out, and in, out, and in. There, there, isn’t that better?

    I would do him as a Hobbit, so the mustache doesn’t really bother me.

  • I’ve watched all the old episodes 3-4 times so I think I MIGHT BE READY NOW. (grumble grumble more than ready.)

  • Annie Towne

    I just came.
