The Sherlockology Review of 2012
And so ends 2012, a packed year for BBC Sherlock and for Sherlockology itself. It’s the close of our first full year of running the website and all the connected social accounts, and ‘full’ is certainly the right word when looking back on the past twelve months.

Panel changes to the Sherlock Masterclass at the Edinburgh International Television Festival
In an amendment to the news of July 13, Benedict Cumberbatch and Paul McGuigan are no longer attending the Sherlock Masterclass at the Media Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival, due to other commitments.
However, Andrew Scott is instead joining the panel on Friday August 24 2012, alongside Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss and Sue Vertue.
The news was quietly revealed yesterday by the Edinburgh TV Festival Twitter Account.
Do you know if the Sherlock Masterclass at Edinburgh International Television Festival will be filmed? They seem to have a YouTube channel but I can't find any specifics about that particuler Masterclass. Thank you!
It’s too early to say unfortunately, but we can be ever hopeful. We may find out nearer the time of the festival itself, and rest assured we’ll update as soon as we know. It seems the panel is one of the smaller ones at the festival, taking place in a 300 seat auditorium of the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
UPDATE from Question in comments:
If you purchase a pass to MGEITF is there no guarantee you will be admitted to the Sherlock Masterclass? Is it first come first served? I’m in Northern Ireland so trying to decide whether or not the cost of a pass + flight would be worthwhile. Thanks
Again it’s unfortunately too early to say what the ticketing process for events at MGETIF will actually be, but since a pass covers the entire festival, ‘first come first served’ is an distinct possibility. It’s also worth weighing up the fact the Masterclass only lasts an hour in length if you are looking to attend just for that event.
Sherlock has picked up another nomination - Terrestrial Programme of the Year at the MGEITF (Media Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival ) Awards for it’s brilliant second series.
Sherlock won Terrestrial Programme of the Year 2011 at the MGEITF for it’s first series last year.
