Let's Deconstruct the First Image from 'Sherlock' Season Three And Figure Out How Holmes Survived

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | November 5, 2013 | Comments ()


Last week, we learned that the third season of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s Sherlock will premiere in America on January 19th. In fact, it will air back-to-back with the fourth season of Downton Abbey (which premieres on January 5th). Today, we get the first image from the new season (above).


Well, we have Watson looking sad, while Holmes stands outside of a diner in what looks like an Edward Hopper painting. Watson is having coffee after polishing off what appears to have been a pizza. Why coffee and pizza? MYSTERY. How does this tie into Holmes jumping off a building at the end of season two and smashing into the pavement?

I got nothing. Mirrors? A mirage? A lighting trick? HE CUSHIONED HIS FALL WITH PIZZA?

Come on, Moffat. JUST TELL ME. Don’t make us wait another two months? Will it make sense? Is Doctor Who involved? IS THAT IT? IS HOLMES A TIME LORD?

It’s killing me, people. I MUST KNOW.

FYI: Lars Mikkelsen will play this season’s villain. His character, Charles Augustus Magnussen, is loosely based on Sir Arthur Conan’s “king of the blackmailers,” Charles Augustus Milverton.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
