Today, BBCOne released their 2014 programme trailers, and new clips from Sherlock are added in.
Watch the trailer HERE (link is from a tumblr blog)
The trailer seems to contain the start of Sherlock’s best man speech, among new and interesting clips.
I’ve got nothing more to say, except that there’s only 19 hours left until The Empty Hearse airs and goodluck to all of us in the fandom waiting.
WHAT’S THAT? MORE SHERLOCK SEASON 3 PHOTOS? YES PLEASE! (Spoilers Ahead)
It looks like after two years’ worth of silence, BBC’s Sherlock is coming back with a BANG.
With extravagant social media promotions (see literal empty hearse promotions around London and the #SherlockLives tag on Twitter), interactive trailers, and new photos coming out almost week-after-week, Sherlock’s return looks to be a busy and promising one.
What does worry me is it’s the BBC. They’re giving fans waaaay too much stuff, so as a fan I do begin to wonder if something VERY painful is up ahead.
YES, I AM A BIT LATE TO THE PARTY (OR MOURNING, FOR THAT MATTER), BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN OUT FOR THE DAY. I SHOULD LEARN HOW TO QUEUE MY POSTS AND I WILL IN THE FUTURE.
But today, BBC aired the Doctor Who Christmas Special, The Time of the Doctor. This hour-long episode features the answers to most of the elements from the 11th Doctor’s arc: the silence will fall, the crack in the universe, and the question he’s always been running away from; DOCTOR WHO?
A note from me that this episode, although not perfect, does tug (more like rip) at heartstrings and draws from emotion and nostalgia on previous companion, Amy Pond’s, arc. The fairytale allusion Moffat has made throughout this arc just becomes so apparent that the episode even uses a fairytale-like narration from the beginning. I mean seriously, all three years he’s probably waited to put that punchline to that story.
Personal note here that Matt Smith’s 11th Doctor is the first Doctor I’ve seen, and ever watched an episode from, so yes, I am a LOT saddened by his regeneration and just the way the episode was set up, I personally think the regeneration fits with the whole fairytale arc. I won’t do spoilers in this review/announcement. I probably won’t do a decent review, but I could type up some commentary on why I think these things. If this pain in my heart caused by 11 will go away.
SO, to every Whovian out there that watched and survived this, here’s to you
And to Matt Smith
AAND TO PETER CAPALDI, WHO WILL BE THE NEW DOCTOR,
I am late to the party, yes, but today, the minisode of BBC’s Sherlock, aptly named Many Happy Returns, was released (through the BBC’s ‘red button’ first, then online on YouTube). It’s a prequel to the first episode of series 3, The Empty Hearse.
It’s 7 minutes long, and has a corresponding blog post from John Watson’s official blog, which can be found here.
It doesn’t feature big spoilers from the series, apart from confirming the fact that Sherlock IS indeed alive. I’m pretty sure there would be gifs of this minisode everywhere now, especially on tumblr (they work fast. Faster thank you think.). I just need a gif of Lestrade doing a headdesk. Don’t know what I’m talking about?
Watch it here:
Stay tuned for future announcements regarding the Twelfth Doctor!
Also, today is the worldwide premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and when I see it, do expect a review, a first for this blog!
