Sherlock Comic-Con Panel: "They Wouldn't Stop There, Would They?!"

Jul 19 2013 - 4:21am

In the midst of filming season three, the masterminds behind Sherlock — cocreator Steven Moffat, cocreator and actor Mark Gatiss (aka Mycroft), and producer Sue Vertue — took the show to Comic-Con fans for the first time. But the panel had a few noticable people missing: stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. Why, you ask? Because, as Steven jokingly riffed on the pair's famous TV and movie roles, respectively, "one is a high-functioning sociopath, and the other is a hobbit."

Video messages from the actors (screenshot above and clip below!) were shown in their absence — Martin in Bilbo Baggins attire and Benedict dropping some major spoilers about how Sherlock survives "The Reichenbach Fall" cliffhanger via stuffed monkeys (OK, there may have been some "technical difficulties" on that spoiler bit).

Reflecting on season two's epic ending, which the producers said had their phones going crazy after it aired, they also dropped hints on what's to come in season three. Here are the highlights from a Thursday panel that saw fans waiting in line since Wednesday [1].
