On 4 April, Rachel Talalay started to film the first, untitled, episode of the fourth series of Sherlock in Cardiff, written by Mark Gatiss.
Three days later, on April 7, BBC issued the official press release. Stephen Moffat and Mark Gatiss stated that “Ghosts of the past are rising in the lives of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson bringing adventure, romance, and terror in their wake.”. Although they didn’t announce the release date, the official fan club website Sherlockology.com says that most likely it will air at the beginning of 2017, probably in January.
Sherlock’s actors have been busy so far; Benedict Cumberbatch just finished the photography for Marvel’s Dr. Strange the day before filming. Martin Freeman, who plays Sherlock’s flatmate and friend, Dr. Watson, will be seen in a new Captain America: Civil War movie as Everett Ross and Andrew Scott (Moriarty) plays Hamlet at the Almeida Theatre.
Rachel Talalay, who comes from Chicago, is the first female director in the series after Coky Giedroyc, who directed the unaired pilot of Sherlock. Rachel has broad experience, ranging from Ally McBeal to Dr. Who to Tank Girl. The latest was an R-rated movie based on the comic book about a girl who fights a corporation that controls the resources of drinking water.
