For all those waiting patiently, or not so patiently, for series three of the BBC’s excellent Sherlock to air, here’s a little something to tide you over.  Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are both very much in demand so neither one could be present for this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, but they both sent along video messages which you can watch online at Masterpiece.

If you weren’t already a fan of these two charming gentlemen this just might do it.

At Comic-Con a few more details about what to expect in the new series (e.g. Watson’s wedding with Sherlock as best man!) were revealed.   You can check them out here.
