‘Sherlock’ season 4: The latest filming update via Mark Gatiss

Sherlock season 3It’s almost impossible these days to get some sort of substantial filming update on “Sherlock” season 4; therefore, we’ll take almost whatever we can get.

Today, that includes the smallest of updates from co-creator Mark Gatiss proclaiming that Block 1 of filming for the new season! That means there’ll probably be some sort of a break, with Block 2 coming up in the near future. This is a show that operates using at times a unique schedule, given that their three “episodes” are in many ways mini-movies in their own right. There are some similar sets, but at the same time new locations are visited every time.

Unfortunately, we still do not know precisely when the new season is going to be premiering on BBC One. Our hope is that it will come on by New Year’s at the latest, and early suggestions do make us feel as though that could be the case. We know that there should be enough time between filming and then to get post-production together.

The majority of filming, for those who do not know, for “Sherlock” this time around is happening in Wales. This is certainly a place that is familiar to fellow co-creator Steven Moffat, given that the majority of the sets for “Doctor Who” are also done in the area. That show will not air on the BBC until next year with its tenth season, which means we are a little bit deprived of all things Moffat over the course of the next several months.
