Sherlock S3E2: The Sign of Three completes filming
Filming has completed today on the second block of Sherlock filming - largely comprising Sherlock S3E2: The Sign of Three - after four weeks of work which began on Monday April 22 2013. The second episode of the third series is written by Stephen Thompson and directed by Colm McCarthy.
Filming of The Sign of Three has taken place in cities in England and Wales familiar to the Sherlock production team, including an extensive period of work in Bristol at the beginning of the schedule. London also once again paid host to the series towards the end of the shoot, while filming itself wrapped on stage in Cardiff just before 20:00BST this evening.
Additional material for S3E1: The Empty Hearse was also shot during the latter stages of this second block of filming, under the direction of Jeremy Lovering.
Production on Sherlock Series Three will now take a scheduled break, to allow cast and crew to fulfil other long planned obligations.
Cast and crew are due to fully reconvene in late July 2013 for filming on the third episode of the series, written by Steven Moffat.
We gather quite a few of you have heard of a much discussed deleted scene in Star Trek Into Darkness with Benedict Cumberbatch…? JJ Abrams showed a brief clip of the scene on Conan overnight…

HAPPY 154th BIRTHDAY SIR ARTHUR!
Geminis born May 22 have great charisma and the ability to draw attention to themselves. They may be lofty and intellectual one day, earthy and intense another. They also have a spiritual side they seldom reveal to others. For this reason they usually keep personal beliefs to themselves.
We’re excited to bring you the next stage in the Sherlockology experience - our own online store, featuring premium quality products inspired by the BBC Series, as well as a one-stop place to find the Holmes related books of MX Publishing.
The primary aim of Sherlockabilia is not simply selling merchandise however, and we’re going to be brutally honest here.
Sherlockology is a website funded fully from our own pockets, and recently costs have started to mount up. Though we have been relying on kind donations and advertising revenue, costs for maintaining the website continue to rise. So we have decided to open Sherlockabilia, stocked with a growing range of exclusive and varied products, to help fund our server costs, and expenses for the travel we undertake to bring you content on the website like features and reviews. Sherlockology is a website that remains not for profit, and the funds raised from any sales on Sherlockabilia are not going into our wallets. We love running the site and everything that it entails, and wish to keep doing so.
Sherlockabilia is very much a work in progress, and we aim to continue to expand the range we offer in the future.
So take a look around, and do let us know if there’s anything YOU would like us to produce for sale on the store. We hope you like some of the Holmes inspired merchandise we have come up with so far.
We’re particularly fond of a certain blue Scarf, and black umbrella for example….
Visit the store at www.sherlockabilia.com. Most items, with exceptions, ship worldwide. If they require special shipping requirements, the product listing will have further information.
Doctor Who Series S7B – The Sherlock Related Review
As we promised at the end of September 2012, we’re back in Time Lord mode with the second half of our Sherlock related review of Doctor Who Series 7, examining the episodes that crossover with our favourite detective through their writers and directors (and on occasion, cast members). The latter section of the seventh series features work from the three writers of Sherlock, with Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss handling two episodes apiece and Steve Thompson scripting a single instalment. As before, this isn’t an all encompassing review of the entire series, just these five episodes – The Bells of Saint John, Cold War, Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS, The Crimson Horror and The Name of the Doctor. Please note though we’ll be discussing some spoilers in detail throughout as we examine how these episodes function individually and as contributions to the final episode.

Heard the story of Simon Pegg and Chris Pine fooling Benedict Cumberbatch into wearing protective ‘neutron cream’ on the set of Star Trek Into Darkness, only to later tell him it wasn’t really needed, and wasn’t even real?
Well, Mr Pegg finally just shared the photographic proof of this little jest on his Twitter account…
