Sherlock to make its Comic-Con debut
The BBC's Sherlock will be attending SDCC for the first time. We imagine that's going to excite one or two people...
Like those shops in airports selling Union Flag teapots and tins of boiled sweets in red phone box-shaped tins, America's PBS Masterpiece is a little piece of England abroad, some corner of a foreign field that gives the US a window onto UK telly. Not into everything mind, not Come Dine With Me, or Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, but the classy, glossy stuff; PBS Masterpiece shows Downton Abbey, Wallander, Call the Midwife, and so on.
Its crown jewel though, is Sherlock, and proof of the flappy-coated detective's popularity stateside is that 2013 will see his debut at San Diego Comic-Con. Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss, and Sue Vertue will be on a Sherlock panel, and though Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman will not be in attendance, EW writes, "surprises" are to be expected.
While we all await an air date for Sherlock's third season, US fans know that whenever PBS broadcasts the much-anticipated episodes, it will be some time after the BBC transmission. We'll keep you posted as soon as more news arrives.
