The BBC has officially re-commissioned its critically acclaimed and ratings hit Sherlock for a second series. The modern-day version of Sherlock Holmes was developed by Steven Moffat and Mark Gattis for BBC One and three 90 minute episodes aired earlier this Summer to strong rating and rave reviews. Benedict Cumberbatch played Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle’s famous sleuth with Martin Freeman as companion Doctor Watson.
It was pretty much a done deal that Sherlock would return with only the details to be worked out. Now the BBC has officially confirmed the shows return for 3 further 90 minute episodes for the Autumn of 2011. There was some speculation as to when new episodes of Sherlock could be filmed due to Steven Moffat’s commitments on Doctor Who but it seems as though those issues have been worked out.
