Andrew Scott, who plays Jim Moriarty on BBC One‘s Sherlock says the cast would be sent to the gallows for disclosing any spoilers to the outside world. I’ve always assumed staying silent on one’s projects if you’re an actor, Apple employee or CIA official is just an inherent part of The Way Things Are. Evidently not.
BBC One is making extra sure that no leakage happens to keep fans on their toes. At the close of the last series, Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Sherlock suffered a fake death after being (wrongly) accused of being a serial killer.
According to Scott:
If I told you what happens they would kill me.
I never guessed how the last episode would end. It even surprised me.
It has been fantastic filming the new series but we have all been banned from telling our families or friends what is in the scripts.
We are not allowed to speak to anyone.
I don’t think everyone thought it would be so successful.
I can see it still on TV in 20 years as we all started working on it very young.
The next series airs this fall (in the U.K. anyway), and only then will we find out what happens.
What do you guys think, what’s your spoiler policy?
