So far all we know about the third season of BBC’s Sherlock are three words: “Rat. Wedding. Bow.” It’s not much to go on, but it’s plenty to get excited about.
It turns out that not even the actors involved — or those that could be involved — know what’s going to be happening in the hit drama’s next three episodes.
“I have no idea,” Lara Pulver, who played Irene Adler in the first episode of Season 2, told reporters at New York Comic Con before she burst out laughing. “We start shooting in January, Season 3. They’re writing the episodes — three episodes — as we speak. I have no idea if she’ll stay as a one-episode wonder or whether she’ll return for the final season.”
“A Scandal in Belgravia” was nominated for an Emmy, but ended up losing to HBO’s Game Change. Pulver said that, in this case, she expected the overwhelmingly positive response to the episode and her character.
“It’s the first time I’ve then watched something and it’s exceeded my expectation of what the finished product is. And that’s not me being a pessimistic kind of actor who’s like, ‘Oh, God, I don’t know why I did that.’ I’m talking visually, the story; it just worked so well,” said the actress, who was at the convention to promote the new Starz drama Da Vinci’s Demons. “The relationship between Benedict [Cumberbatch] and I just seemed to work really well, and it was fun from the get-go. We had so much fun, so it was an absolute pleasure to do that job, and it was a gift of a role.”
Sherlock is expected to return to PBS in fall 2013.
