Sherlock S3E1: The Empty Hearse completes filming * 15 April 2013

Sherlock -s3

Principal photography has completed on Sherlock S3E1: The Empty Hearse, after four weeks of filming which began on Monday March 18 2013. The episode is written by Mark Gatiss and directed by Jeremy Lovering. 

During the past month, the production returned to Cardiff, Newport and Bristol - used in both previous series - to film exterior and interior locations for the episode, as well as making a first trip to Cheltenham for two days of work. Filming culminated with an intensive six day schedule in London, including a return visit to Speedy's Café in North Gower Street to capture scenes around the iconic front door of 221B Baker Street. 

Barring any additional pick-up shooting in the future, The Empty Hearse will now enter post-production.

Next on the filming schedule is Sherlock S3E2: The Sign of Three, written by Stephen Thompson and directed by Colm McCarthy, which will begin production soon.
