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.
NEWS IN THE FANDOM:
(from Mark Gatiss’ official Twitter account)
With this tweet, fans are up in speculation on what could be the content of this special vehicle; most have guessed that it could be the series’ air date.
As to what this certain vehicle could be, some have speculated that a hearse will be driving down the streets, based on the title of the season’s first episode, “The Empty Hearse.” It does make sense, if a hearse indeed drives down the streets tomorrow.
Nonetheless, Sherlock is STILL intent on the whole social media aspect, as the VERY specific hashtag #r3spects is used for this announcement by the fansite, Sherlockology.
More on this story tomorrow, as the vehicle roams around the said areas…
The Night of the Doctor is a short film for Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary, that premiered last week, on November 14. It’s written by Steven Moffat and stars Paul McGann, reprising his role as the 8th Doctor.
The short picks up where McGann’s Doctor left off, which was during the Time War (the war between the Daleks and the Timelords). The Doctor attempts to aid Cass with her crashing ship, but upon the reveal of his identity as a Time Lord, Cass refuses his help.
The ship crashes and the Doctor is found by the Sisterhood of Karn, who revives him temporarily. The Sisterhood offers the Doctor the choice to end the Time War, and the Doctor’s choice is finally revealed in this short.
The short came as a complete surprise to the fandom as it was just announced on Twitter, an hour before its release.
The 50th anniversary, The Day of the Doctor, will air on November 23.
