(The following references the ending of a canon story and an officially announced new character, if you seriously don’t want to know that kid of thing.)
The new villain announced for Series 3 is Charles Augustus Magnussen, based on canon’s Charles Augustus Milverton.
While nothing about how they’ll adapt the original stories is for certain, two defining features of the original CAM’s story are his being a horrible blackmailer and getting surprise!murdered for it.
So IF someone from Sherlock appears to shoot CAM in a stunning end twist, who do you think/hope it will be?
Prompt #7: Something Very Special
What was Arwel’s very special thing for Series 3?
Bonus question: Come up with a second option.
I’m sorry, people going to the preview screening, but last time I said my wish out loud it worked so I’m doing it again.
I hope the fall solution is at the end of The Empty Hearse and that they cut off the preview just before that. THERE I SAID IT.
Series 3 speculation below.
Arwel gives an early Christmas present to everyone who’s wasted too much time pausing their DVD in a futile attempt to read Molly’s work ID.
and then if you unlock the grave thing in the interactive trailer
there is video of Gatiss and Moffat discussing fan theories
why is this happening
Thanks to johnfuckingwatson for the heads up on the tweet!
So this was supposed to be the weekend I had set aside to get my blog in order but instead stuff happened (don’t worry about it, I’m fine) and now it will be my weekend of stress with occasional outbursts of strange but therapeutic (for me, not you) blogging.
Speaking of which HEY, SHERLOCK SPOILERS & SETLOCK RELATED STUFF UNDER THE READ MORE.
Hey, so there is a giant wad of new Series 3 photos on BuzzFeed today.
Even though my blog’s spoiler policy allows for posting of officially released promotional material, I’m trying to go easy on promo photos until after the BFI preview screening on December 15. (Anyone who sticks around Tumblr at that point and doesn’t have spoiler tag blacklists set is just asking for trouble anyway.)
Okay, so I did something foolish. In my defense, it is normally not a very foolish thing to do when dealing with a website from a major organization, but -hahahahaha- the BBC Sherlock sites are not normal. And now it looks like I’ve spoiled myself a bit for John’s upcoming blog posts.
Luckily, these spoilers are very mild. WAY below the usual setlock bar, in my opinion. And they’re really only blog content spoilers, not Series 3 spoilers.
On the other hand, I don’t want this to happen again with anything that might give away actual plot stuff later, so BBC: make your site better.
Now I guess I’ll just go ahead and dump the stuff I saw under a cut, because it’s so mild and UGH I don’t want to waste mental energy pretending I haven’t seen something that someone else will notice by the time the next blog post goes up anyway.
Stop reading here if you don’t want to know anything about… anything.
