Behind the Scenes on Sherlock Season 3

Feb 3 2014 - 5:01pm

It's back to the waiting game for fans of the BBC's Sherlock, as the final episode of season three [1] aired in the US on Sunday. While we might not have to wait two years between seasons again — rumor has it new episodes will air Christmas Day 2014 [2] — the lack of new Sherlock-Watson antics will still make those 10 months feel mighty long.

While you wallow in the (temporary!) end of Sherlock, take a look behind the scenes with pictures from the cast and crew themselves on set of season three. If you haven't seen the new episodes, spoilers right ahead!
