First of a few Comic-Con related blogs you can expect from me over the next few days and the first one to go is Sherlock ....
The panel in San Diego was headed by writers/creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss (who was confirmed this week to appearing in the fourth season of Game Of Thrones) and Sue Vertue. At least ten interesting things were leaked about the upcoming third series.
1: A fourth series will definitely happen but of course, it'll depend on when Benedict and Martin are available for filming.
2: Benedict has been described as the "goofy" one with Martin as the "dry, sardonic" one. I would've thought it was the reverse.
3: Mark Gatiss is still surprised that we haven't figured out that cliffhanger. I think I might have done.
4: Sherlock and Watson's reunion is definitely going to appeal to the slash fans in a big way. It's been described as "beautiful" and will "make your hands stand on end".
5: Benedict's spoilers for the cliffhanger have included two toy monkeys, teabag and cabbage. He might not be entirely serious though.
6: For those who ship Sherlock and Molly, well, they won't be kissing anytime soon.
7: Moriarty is definitely dead. And Watson is married.
8: The ending for Series 3 is going to outdo the second series ender to the point where you'll wonder how the show can continue.
9: Mark Gatiss still wants a Roger Moore cameo in either Sherlock or Doctor Who. Then again, so does Roger Moore himself.
10: Don't expect a Sherlock movie anytime soon.
They're not the most revealing of spoilers but they're definitely something to whet the old appetite. The filming for the final story in the third series, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Nick Hurran will begin later this month and before we know it, it won't be long before Series 3 kicks in and we're watching. I'm betting it might air during December with the finale airing around the Christmas period.
EDIT: All the titles for Series 3 have been revealed. They are The Empty Hearse, The Sign Of Three and His Last Vow.

Sherlock's third series will air in late 2013 possibly.
