Last week was hard for a lot of us. But let’s regroup and talk about something positive!
So, we know the (probable) Christmas episode of Sherlock will be set in victorian times, as evidenced by the photo below:
But now we have word from Moffat via an interview with Entertainment Weekly (and excerpted on The Mary Sue (http://www.themarysue.com/sherlock-moffat-fanfic/) that it’s going to be dark but with a touch of humor, and will probably leave us wanting series 5 immediately. Quoth the Moffat:
[Season 4] is going to be… I suppose you’d say… consequences. It’s consequences. Chickens come to roost. It’s dark in some ways—obviously it’s great fun and a Sherlock Holmes romp and all that—but there’s a sense of… things… coming back to bite you.
In addition (as noted on EW), Moffat says there’s something “no one has talked about before” that needs to be resolved this season.
While The Mary Sue thinks a certain character will probably survive, any speculation on what else Moffat and Gatiss have up their sleeves? What do you think that one thing is (is it me marrying Benedict, because I am more than happy to resolve that!) I have to take down a show today, but never fear! I’ll read your theories and think on them (and probably comment as I don’t have a lot going on right now.)
Also!! Wolf Hall premiers on PBS next week! Who else is with me on this one??
