Sherlock -s3

Principal photography has completed today in Cardiff on the third block of scheduled filming in Sherlock Series Three - mostly comprising S3E3: His Last Vow. This brings to a close all filming on the long awaited third series of Sherlock, which began five months ago in March 2013.

Filming for S3E3: His Last Vow was once again concentrated in locations in Wales and London. Earlier in August the filming on North Gower Street attracted without doubt the largest crowds of the entire production of Series Three, and is shown spectacularly in the image below from @Haroon Mota, taken from an overlooking window at University College London Hospitals.

S3E3: His Last Vow, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Nick Hurran, will now enter post-production. The previously shot episodes - S3E1: The Empty Hearse and S3E2: The Sign of Three - are already deep in post-production, with composers David Arnold and Michael Price currently recording the music scores as picture and sound editing and mixing continue.

At present, no premiere airdate for Sherlock Series Three has been or can be confirmed by the BBC or Hartswood Films. As post-production continues the definite airdate will likely become clearer, so stay tuned to our Twitter and Facebook accounts to be the first to know when the long awaited news is finally announced.

In addition, Sherlockology can promise several pieces of exclusive content to come - while we have not been reporting on news of filming as it happened, it doesn't mean we have been idle. We have been present several times throughout the production of Sherlock Series Three - including a private tour of the studio and set of 221B in the past couple of weeks - and have collected plenty of new and exclusive photographs and stories to bring you all a unique and indepth look at the experience of filming the new series of Sherlock in the future.
