Hey! Thanks for telling us the PBS air date as we all knew you would. But that, unfortunately, is useless to me as I live in the UK. So, could you either squash or confirm the Nov. 22nd BBC air date rumour...? Thanks :)

We can confirm any UK airdates you see for October or November are most definitely false. Post-production will be ongoing through November, with composers David Arnold and Michael Price working on the music for S3E3 until at least the middle of the month.

The BBC cannot and will not schedule or announce any UK airdates until they have taken delivery of the completed run of three episodes, and even then the airdate will only be set in stone around two to three weeks before broadcast. This is standard practice for any BBC programme (with the completely unique exception of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special).

By way of example,  Sherlock Series 2 had its UK airdate announced by the BBC in mid December 2011, ahead of the premiere on January 1 2012.

We’ll be keeping everyone up to date on the progress of post-production and the eventual airdates as and when information is provided to us by the BBC and the production team.
