Deep joy among Sherlock afficionadoes this week as it was announced that in addition to the existing BBC trilogy of updated Holmes films, there are plans to make more instalments, although it's unlikely that they'll be seen for a year or more.
After only one episode, 'Sherlock' is already acquiring cult status, following impressive debut performances from Benedict Cumberbatch as the great detective, and Martin Freeman as sidekick, Doctor John Watson in 'A Study In Pink'
But the BBC boobed badly by making only three episodes of the updated Holmes adventures. They tried to explain it away by saying that the scriptwriter was busy writing Doctor Who episodes, and some fans aren't happy at all.
"Typical bloody BBC," grumbled Leslie Gitt of Stroud. "They get themselves a winning formula, and then they can't deliver. Somebody somewhere should have realised that a Holmes wearing nicotine patches and sending texts would be a winner, and commissioned more shows. But no. The pillocks would rather invest in East-Enders and the fucking One Show. It's about time they sorted themselves out, and started listening to the licence payers."
More as we get it.
