Among the most successful collaborations between the United States’ PBS and England’s BBC is the series SHERLOCK, which airs in the U.S. as part of PBS’ Masterpiece Theatre. Adapted by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s novels and stories, SHERLOCK takes the famed detective Holmes, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, and his loyal sidekick Dr. John Watson, played by Martin Freeman, and presents them as contemporary men in present-day London. Except that the current special, SHERLOCK: THE ABOMINABLE BRIDE, airing on PBS Friday, January 1, is set in the Victorian era. First at a question-and-answer session set […]Read On »

SHERLOCK, the present-day adaptation by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic Victorian-era character, is doing something very different for New Year’s. On Friday, January 1, PBS will present SHERLOCK: THE ABOMINABLE BRIDE, which sees Benedict Cumberbatch’s Holmes and Martin Freeman’s Watson actually existing and solving a case in the late nineteenth century. It is, as the English are wont to say, a one-off. Sue Vertue, SHERLOCK’s series producer (who is also married to Moffat), has previously produced/executive produced other British series, including THE CUP, SUPERNOVA, CARRIE & BARRY and COUPLING. However, she says there is something […]Read On »

Interview: SHERLOCK co-creator Steven Moffat is on the case for Season 3

  SHERLOCK is back on the case in his third season on PBS, Sunday at 10 PM, albeit too briefly for most fans – this Sunday’s episode, the third of the current series, is also the season finale. With Benedict Cumberbatch as the famous detective who faked his own death at the end of last season and Martin Freeman as the often irate but loyal and smart Dr. John Watson, series creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ present-day take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s London sleuth has its viewers begging for more. Moffat is in attendance for a Q&A held […]Read On »

Interview: SHERLOCK star Benedict Cumberbatch talks Season 3

SHERLOCK is back for its third season on PBS, Sundays at 10 PM, and not a moment too soon. The series, created by Mark Gatiss & Steven Moffat from Arthur Conan Doyle’s detail-oriented British detective character, has been much missed by its fans during the long gap since the end of Season 2, which saw Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock apparently falling to his death from a rooftop, much to the grief of his friend and detecting partner Dr. John Watson (Martin Freeman). Now Sherlock is back – with an explanation of how and why he disappeared for two years and fooled […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: David Bradley on AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE AND TIME and being the first Who – PART 1

AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE AND TIME | ©2013 BBCAmerica

British actor David Bradley has just hit a fandom trifecta (there isn’t a the fandom trifecta – there will never be just three): he was the unhappily non-magical custodian Filch in the HARRY POTTER films, he continues as the indelible Walder Frey, host of the Red Wedding, on HBO’s GAME OF THRONES, and now he’s part of the DOCTOR WHO universe. Once upon a time, hard as it may be to recall and longer ago than many Whovians have been alive, DOCTOR WHO quite simply did not exist. It was brought into being in 1963 by a team including producer […]Read On »
