Following yesterday's news piece by Deadline, we've independently verified with Sherlock producer Sue Vertue, and the production publicist, that Jeremy Lovering is attached to the third series, and will be behind the camera when S3E1 begins filming on Monday March 18 2013. 

This is the first time the first episode in a series of Sherlock has been filmed first in the production schedule. Yes, that's a lot of firsts.

Series One saw S1E3: The Great Game open the shooting schedule in January 2010, while Series Two began filming with S2E2: The Hounds of Baskerville in May 2011. 

Jeremy Lovering has nearly twenty years of experience in television directing and writing across documentary, comedy and drama genres. Beginning with a 1995 instalment of the 'Our Man in…' series, which saw presenter Clive Anderson journey to Beirut, Jeremy rose to greater prominence in 2001 when he directed three episodes of the first series of the much loved Channel 4 drama 'Teachers.'

In 2003 he wrote and directed the BBC drama documentary 'Killing Hitler', a ninety minute film which recounted the British attempts to kill the dictator during Operation Foxley in 1944. The documentary was nominated for a Royal Television Society Award. Other notable credits include 'Sex & Lies' in 2004, two episodes of 'Spooks' fourth series in 2005, and the drama 'Miss Austen Regrets' in 2007, starring Olivia Williams as the beloved author in the last years of her life. In 2010 Jeremy directed an acclaimed and challenging two part adaptation of Martin Amis' novel 'Money', starring Nick Frost.

In film, Jeremy worked as the second unit director on the 2007 action-comedy feature 'Hot Fuzz', directed by Edgar Wright and starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. He has made his feature film debut in 2013 with the horror 'In Fear', which caused a huge stir at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and saw him listed in many places as a breakout talent to watch. Jeremy wrote an extensive blog on the experience of taking the film to Sundance for Film4's website.

Jeremy and Colm McCarthy are at present the only confirmed directors on Sherlock Series three. The third has yet to be announced.
