Martin Freeman teases possible one off Sherlock special

There's no sign of Sherlock series 4 yet, but Martin Freeman has hinted a one-off may be in the works...

Time constraints continue to be one of the problems with regards Sherlock series four. The key personnel both in front and behind the camera seem keen to carry on with Sherlock's adventures, but finding a space particularly in Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman's respective schedules to film more adventures is easier said than done.

However, Freeman has teased one possible solution. He's a guest on Alan Carr's chat show this week - which goes out on Friday - and he told the host that "Mark Gatiss may beat me up, but there is an idea for this one-off special that’s such a good idea, and as I was listening to it I thought ‘we’ve just got to do this’. And I don’t know when we are going to be able to do it, unfortunately".

A one-off special? It may combat the scheduling problem (Freeman revealed that the writing team are having trouble finding the time as well as the cast!), and may get a Sherlock adventure to us sooner. But we've been quite spoiled by the three in a matter of weeks format.

Anyway, Freeman added that "it’s a fantastic, really mouth-watering idea. But I really don’t know when we are going to get to do it". Bottom line: Sherlock still won't be back anytime soon...
