Martin Freeman Teases A Potential One-Off Special Episode Of SHERLOCK


sherlockSherlock fans are eager for the next season of the smash-hit BBC show from Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss to start back up, especially with the way this last series ended. Stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are staying very busy with movies and other TV shows, so when the two can get a big enough opening in their schedules to film a new set of episodes is trying to be figured out right now. While we could have another year or two wait before we see the Baker Street gang back in action, Freeman teased a potential special episode that could fill the gap.

Freeman teased the possibility of a special one-off Sherlock episode according to Cultbox (via IGN). The Hobbit star said, “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.

While that’s just an idea the cast and crew are talking about, it would be much easier for Cumberbatch and Freeman to find the time to film one special episode than an entire series. If the idea is as great as Freeman says, and past experiences would indicate it probably is, then we may see that play out some time in the future. One very special episode would help make the long wait for a new season that much easier. What do you think about Freeman‘s comment? Would you like to see one episode filling the gap between series?
