sherlock series 3 spoiler podcast special steven moffat mark gatiss

After a two-year absence Sherlock Series 3 came and went in just two weeks, delivering approximately 221 twists, several new psychopaths and even a few new interpretations of the theme tune. In this extended Empire Podcast interview with creators / writers / showrunners Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, you'll find out how they all made it happen, what didn't make the cut and more details on Charles Augustus Magnussen's antisocial antics. Hint: it involves nudity.

Moffat and Gatiss also discuss their take on Moriarty and Mary Watson, as well as the many nods to Arthur Conan Doyle stories and even Bond that they cram into their super-dense show. On top of all that, there are a few tantalising hints of what we can expect next season and a fascinating glimpse into how they constructed some of the biggest and best moments of this season. In other words, if you call yourself a Sherlock fan, you need this in your life.

Your Comments

Date of interview?
Just wondering when this interview was recorded? I believe the host said end of last year, but it's not especially specific. I don't know if people who work on the show reply to any of these comments, but help is appreciated! More

RE: hmmmmm?
I've listened to about half of the podcast so far, it's absolutely fascinating stuff and I'd recommend it to anyone with even a passing interest in Sherlock. (The disclaimer is that even Gatiss and Moffat themselves readily admit that, for obvious reasons, they may well be lying at all times throughout interviews. In fact they seem to revel in toying with their audiences.) I have a question though - any chance of a transcript? More
