article imageSeason 3 of ‘Sherlock’ teased by new BBC trailers

By Mathew Wace Peck     Sep 3, 2013 in Entertainment
The BBC is gearing up for the eagerly anticipated third season of its stylishly hit modern-day update of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories.

Repeat showings of season 2 ended recently with The Reichenbach Fall, the episode in which Sherlock Holmes falls to his death, but is then seen, in the closing moments, to be alive and well. Since first being broadcast in 2012, viewers have been left guessing how Holmes could have survived the fall.
According to Metro, no return date has yet been announced. To date, those eager to see the new episodes are having to content themselves with the two recent trailers: a specific Sherlock one and a more generic BBC trailer highlighting the corporation’s autumn drama schedule.
In the second, Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) is talking to his friend, John (Martin Freeman), telling him, “The thrill of the chase, the blood pumping through your veins – just the two of us against the rest of the world.”
As well as the new series of Sherlock, over the coming month’s the BBC is premiering: By Any Means, which stars Warren Brown (Luther) as Jack Quinn, the leader of an elite team of mavericks who bring criminals to justice; The Great Train Robbery, which comes from the pen of Broadchurch creator, Chris Chibnall; The Escape Artist, from the creator of Spooks, David Wolstencroft; What Remains, the four-part thriller starring David Threlfall in his first major TV role since the end of Paul Abbott’s Shameless; the second season of Ripper Street; and Musketeers, which stars the recently appointed new Doctor Who, Peter Capaldi.
Musketeers has been created by Adrian Hodges, one of the people responsible for Primeval. According to Digital Spy, the ten-part series will present a “fresh and contemporary take” on the classic Alexandre Dumas novel, The Three Musketeers. It stars former Skins actor Luke Pasqualino, 23, as D’Artagnan, who appears alongside Santiago Cabrera (Merlin) as Aramis, Tom Burke (The Hour) as Athos and Howard Charles as Porthos (&Me).
Capaldi, who will be playing the shadowy Cardinal Richlieu in Musketeers, was filming
the series in Prague when he took the call from his agent telling him he’d been chosen as the Twelfth Doctor in the BBC’s flagship science-fiction drama series, Doctor Who.
Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama, speaking ahead of the drama launch, said: “The ambition […] is clearly illustrated with such a world class mix of talent – the perfect team to take the audience on thrilling action adventures every week.”
