The pieces are beginning to fall into place. Sherlock Series Three has another confirmed director, and it is Colm McCarthy, who confirmed his participation in the new series earlier this morning via his Twitter account. McCarthy joins Jeremy Lovering as a director on Sherlock Series Three.

McCarthy comes to the series with an excellent background in British Television Drama, having previously directed episodes of Hustle, Murphy's Law, The Tudors, and Spooks, as well as the two hour television film Endeavour - the prequel to Inspector Morse. That piece of work proved such a success for producers Mammoth Screen that a series of four further films were greenlit to production, with Colm helming an additional episode.

Colm has already had his work on television screens in 2013 with the broadcast of two episodes of the popular BBC drama Ripper Street, and has directed the Steven Moffat scripted opening episode of the second section of Doctor Who series seven - The Bells of St John - due to broadcast on March 30 2013 in the UK and USA.
