Sherlock! Sherlock Season 3 Teaser Trailer! This means Sherlock is just around the corner!
Ever since Doctor Who scribes Stephen Moffat and Mark Gatiss discovered their love of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s beloved, and arrogant, detective and brought him back to life, I have rediscovered my 13 year old love of Sherlock Holmes in the body of a fetching, younger man with a predilection for nicotine patch abuse and technology. He is the answer to the thing those of us who sit around arguing about fact have discovered; intelligence is not just what’s in your head, it’s also being able to access what’s in your hands.
Now that we know it’s coming back, the speculations must begin. How did Sherlock survive? What are we missing? How could Moriarty be fooled by his death? How could Sherlock do that to Watson? We missed something and now we have to go back and watch from the beginning. I think we would have to go back to “A Scandal in Bohemia” and try to think of the things Holmes could have done to convince the authorities of the death of Irene Adler. And while I was a little bored by The Hound of the Baskervilles (I felt the same way about the story, though I loved the finale of both), I must watch both meticulously so that I can see the clues the Moffat left for us. In a way, it is our “Final Problem” in that we see both the death and resurrection of a character. It is hard to imagine how he could have survived a fall completely unscathed.
So, what do you think of the Sherlock Season 3 teaser trailer? How excited are you for the return of most awesome psychopath ever? Did you figure out how Sherlock cheated death? I’d love to read your theories and thoughts in the comments!
