Comic Con 2013

Sherlock Update: Comic Con Panel, Cast Messages and An Episode 3 Title

Note: Yes, I am back from the wonderful world of San Diego! Let me know what I missed while I was gone.

One of the highlights of Comic Con International this year was the first ever panel for super popular mystery series Sherlock – in what, incidentally, was also PBS’s first appearance at the forty-some-year-old convention. The Sherlock panel was – next to perhaps only the 20th anniversary celebration for The X-Files – the convention’s most popular panel that Thursday, with many fans reporting that they camped out for twelve hours or more for a chance to be in the room and see this event.

The panel was moderated by Entertainment Weekly writer James Hibberd, and featured co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, as well as producer Sue Vertue. Moffat, Gatiss and Vertue spent an hour regaling fans with set stories, discussing Series 3 and taking question from the audience. Want some highlights and a clip or two? Read on.

Telly Visions is Heading to Comic Con 2013!

Bear with us if things are a bit quiet around the blog this week – we’ll be back up and running at full strength next week.

Besides an unexpected personal issue that’s kept me off the internet for the past few days (I lost a beloved pet), I’m off to San Diego Comic Con International for the weekend, land of costumes, geeks and general merriment.

While I’m technically going for fun once again this year (and with the hopes that it’ll take my mind off things to be quite honest), there’s no reason that I still can’t report back to everyone about all the relevant and exciting Brit-related news from this year’s convention. Sherlock is slated to make its first ever Comic Con appearance, Doctor Who will be having a celebratory 50th anniversary panel, and there are multiple other panels featuring a variety of British talent. (I may also be supposed to dress up like a TARDIS. There will probably be pictures.)

Expect a full report next week, but in the meantime make sure you're following the blog on Twitter, because if I manage to see or do anything exceptionally aweseome, that's likely where you'll see it first.

Sherlock is Going to Comic-Con; US Premiere of Series 3 Set for 2014

It’s official – PBS will take its first ever trip to San Diego Comic-Con International in a couple of weeks. Popular series Sherlock will host its first panel at the gigantic fan convention, and fans everywhere are already hoping that we’ll finally get some real information about the its highly anticipated third season.

The panel will include co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, along with producer Sue Vertue, and will be hosted by Entertainment Weekly writer James Hibberd. Sadly, neither Benedict Cumberbatch nor Martin Freeman will be in attendance, what with both of them working on other projects during the ten week break from filming on Sherlock Series 3.

While we’ll all obviously miss seeing Cumberbatch and Freeman (you can already hear the fangirl wails from San Diego), it should be still be very exciting to (finally) hear a bit about Series 3 straight from the proverbial horses’ mouths. And, if we’re very lucky, maybe we’ll get a peek at some new footage? Two of the three new episodes are finished filming after all.
