Sherlock Series 4 has wrapped! * 06 August 2016

Sherlock -s 4_web

Sherlock Series Four has officially completed principal photography, with production on the third episode in the series wrapping in the early evening of Friday August 5. Filming on this episode lasted longer than usual for an episode of Sherlock as a break was inserted for major crew to visit San Diego Comic Con. Filming began on Sherlock Series Four on April 6 2016.

Much like the first episode to shoot in the series this instalment is shrouded in mystery, with no new major guest actors announced in advance of filming. Filming on the episode was completely London-free, with production taking place exclusively in Wales. As usual  on the fourth series, production was based out of Pinewood Studios Wales. Location filming took place in plenty of rural and coastal spots - with one in particular being extremely familiar. Southerndown Beach will be instantly recognisable as Bad Wolf Bay if you're a Doctor Who fan, and in this episode of Sherlock it looks set to play an important role if the Series Four trailer is anything to go on...

Sherlock Series Four will now begin post production in earnest. Episodes must be edited, sound must be mixed, and music must be composed before the new series can be aired, likely on January 1 2017 in the UK.
