Sherlock S3E3 Title to be revealed during BBC repeat of Series 2 * 05 July 2013

Sherlock -s3

With the start of filming on Sherlock Series Three Episode Three fast approaching, one of the questions fans have been asking us for most of all is, of course, the title of the final installment in the upcoming series. To tease it out, and to make it more fun for everyone, the BBC have put together an interactive puzzle worthy of James Moriarty himself.

We've been promised that for the next three weeks in the UK, during the long awaited repeat screenings of Sherlock Series Two, viewers will get the chance to begin to decode the eagerly anticipated title.

How exactly?

Well, we're joining in the fun alongide the BBC, so all we can say at this stage is to remember three things:

1) Most importantly, remember this mantra. "The title is in the titles". Yes, it's a riddle, and requires you to work it out for everything to make sense.

2) We recommend having your remote control and a pen and paper to hand before the broadcast starts.

3) The first piece of the title will appear around 15 minutes into A Scandal in Belgravia.

By the nature of this game, unfortunately only UK viewers will be able to play along and unlock the title. No alterations have been made to the visuals of the episodes themselves, but the clues will not exist anywhere apart from this unique UK broadcast. Not even on the DVD or Blu Ray. But either way, by the time the game is done, we're expecting everyone worldwide to know exactly what the title of the final episode of Sherlock Series Three will be!

Sherlock Series Two airs weekly in the UK from July 12 2013, at 20:30BST on BBC One.

Due to a week long delay in broadcast on July 5 2013 thanks to overrunning tennis at Wimbledon, several parts of this article have been updated from the originally posted version to reflect the most up to date information.
