#SherlockR3VEALED – Watch the first teaser trailer for Sherlock Series 3!
So, what did you think about the first trailer for Sherlock Series Three?
The teaser, featuring Una Stubbs, Rupert Graves, Mark Gatiss, Louise Brealey, Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch runs for 25 seconds but features no actual footage from the third series itself.
It is instead an original creation by director Jason Thomson of Red Bee Media, who has created numerous original promotional trailers for the BBC. That said, it does hint at the major dramatic crux of the start of the third series - the inevitable reunion of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, after Sherlock faked his death at the conclusion of The Reichenbach Fall.
And yes, that is a striking new look for John too, don’t you think?
As you may notice, the trailer also carries no airdate for Sherlock Series Three in the UK. While the rough area that Sherlock may be broadcast in will become clearer in the months ahead, the actual definite date cannot be set until the completed episodes have been delivered to the BBC by Hartswood Films, so at the moment any dates you see online continue to be mere speculation.
Erik Johansen’s pictures are worth more than a thousand words. The German born, Swedish based photographer enjoys nothing more than manipulating the mind with his tantalizing visual imagery. His vivid imagination and surreal forms create brilliant pictures of surreal moments, all with a hint of the believable. Originally a computer engineering student, Johansson currently works on personal projects as well as commissioned ones.
If Sherlock was an animated show: A Study in Pink
Since so many enjoyed If Sherlock was an animated show: A Scandal in Belgravia, I decided to continue the series. There’s a few more screencaps from the episode I want to draw, but I hope you enjoy these for now! :D
For Let’s Draw Sherlock, based off of the Absinthe Robette poster by Henri Privat-Livemont (one of my favorite pieces of art in existence, and the fact that it was made as an advertisement doesn’t detract from its value at all, in my opinion.) I couldn’t not attempt this image. Bonus - tiny John and that sneaky wallpaper! This was somehow both the most tedious and most enjoyable thing I’ve drawn in a long time!

Episode 34: Fandom, Meetups & Fan Fiction
On episode 34, Babes Ardy and Maria get to chat it up with Amy, Maz and Trills, three fabulous ladies who, like many other Holmes fans, have written fan fiction about various incarnations of Holmes and Watson.
We want to know all sorts of things from them! What drives a person to write fan fiction in the first place? What kinds of things do they like to read and write? What do they think about pastiches? How do Holmes and Watson work in an alternate universe where they’re pilots, or cats, or space cowboys? What makes them so attractive and enduring to writers and readers?
Our guests have also been involved in fandom as a community, so we talk about the sorts of things that can happen when organising and attending fan events (also known as Lessons in Herding Cats 101).
There are a lot of giggles in this episode, and discussions of all manner of fan fictions. Join us for an interesting and entertaining discussion, and feel free to add your voice to it.
You can follow our guests on Twitter at @flawedamythyst, @mazarin221b, and @trillsabells. Or you can look up these usernames on Archive of our Own to have a look at their fic, if the podcast has whetted your appetite.
