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.
