After Sherlock’s first two very successful seasons, you can understand that there’s a lot of anticipation about the now-shooting third season of the BBC series. Anticipation is so huge that the London locales where the new episodes are being shot are being inundated with fans. Fans armed with cellphone cameras and a willingness to post those pictures online and thus creating a spoiler-frenzy.
Well, Sherlock producer Sue Vertue has had enough of that. She posted a special request to Sherlockology, a Sherlock fan site, asking that if fans could maybe chill out a little and maybe enjoy the anticipation a bit more.
Hi, Sue Vertue here.
As many of you are aware, we’ll soon be embarking on our first London leg of filming for series 3. I’m also aware that there is quite a lot of speculation about where we’re shooting when. I can’t stress how much we the Producers and Benedict [Cumberbatch], Martin [Freeman] and the rest of the cast appreciate your love and dedication to our show – we’ll endeavour to live up to your expectations for Series 3.
What I am nervous about is that our London shooting schedule is punishing and will really give us very little time to interact with you. The actors really hope you understand that.
Also, and I know this is probably asking a lot, the majority of fans and indeed ourselves would REALLY appreciate it if you didn’t post pictures or spoilers or ideally our daily locations.
Thanks for your understanding. Sue x
She maybe whistling Dixie on that account. This is always the issue when a fan-obsession shoots out on the real-life streets, but hey, I guess it can’t hurt to ask. And who are we at Nerd Bastards to tell people that they can’t spoil stuff? It’s kind of our bread and butter after all.
