The next series of 'Sherlock' - starring Benedict Cumberbatch - will begin filming in January
The third series of 'Sherlock' will begin filming in January.
The BBC drama - which features Benedict Cumberbatch as a modern-day version of the London-based sleuth, with Martin Freeman as his sidekick Watson - will start up in early 2013, writer Mark Gatiss has confirmed.
He said: "There's going to be more soonish.
"We start filming in January. It might be more expensive but they both wanted to do it. It's very exciting."
'Sherlock' has been a huge success for the BBC, and Martin - who is set to star in Sir Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' this year - has previously revealed he was shocked at the amount of viewers it managed to pull in, even beating BBC stalwart 'EastEnders'.
He said: "Some of the viewing figures we got with the second series of Sherlock were f**king outrageous."
"One week, we beat 'EastEnders', and I'm so proud - not because we beat 'EastEnders' - but I'm just proud that millions, I mean literally millions of people wanted to watch it then. That night, do you know what I mean?'
