Sherlock To Get A One-Off Special?

We already know that the creators of BBC’s “Sherlock,” Steven Moffatt and Mark Gatiss, have already mapped out the next two seasons of the cult hit detective series.

It’s also known that getting them made is mostly about figuring out a matter of scheduling more than anything, with stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman frequently busy while Moffatt and Gatiss also have other TV commitments.

Freeman himself recently did promo rounds for FX’s “Fargo” in the UK where he was asked by The Guardian as to when the fourth season will begin filming?

“I don’t know. Really. I wish I did. I thought the plan was to do it in the autumn but apparently that’s fallen away. We’re all busy. But I’m ready. I’m there. It depends if you want to make time for it. I hope we do. I love it.”

Later, speaking to Cultbox, Freeman indicated that while they may not have the time to produce a three telemovie season this year, there is another option being considered – though even that will be a time challenge:

“Mark Gatiss may beat me up, but there is an idea for this one-off special that’s such a good idea, and as I was listening to it, I thought, ‘We’ve just got to do this.” And I don’t know when we are going to be able to do it, unfortunately. It’s a fantastic, really mouth-watering idea. But I really don’t know when we are going to get to do it.”
