New 'Sherlock' Trailer Is, Wonderfully, The Gayest Thing Yet

By Joanna Robinson | Videos | December 9, 2013 | Comments ()


We can all agree, can we not, that the best thing the BBC’s Sherlock is the lusty, gnarly tension between John Watson (Martin Freeman) and Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch). No? We’re not all on the same page here? FINE. They’re just roommates. FINE. Irene Adler is the love of Sherlock’s life. FINE. These are the sartorial efforts of a perfectly straight man.


Here’s the new trailer for Series 3. Unlike the previous trailers which mostly told us about the action on John Watson’s upper lip, this one actually gives some information. Spoiler alert: the cake is a lie. Enjoy!

Series 3 will premiere on PBS on January 19th, 2014. There will, however, be a Christmas mini-sode to tide us over until then. It will air in the UK on Christmas Day and here, well, as soon as we can get our grubby internet fingers on it, I imagine.

    I will use ANY excuse to bust out this gif.

  • Prepares popcorn...

    It sucks so badly that, here in the States, not only do I have to wait for weeks after 'Sherlock' is aired in the UK to see it here (during which I'll have to stay off the internet altogether to avoid spoilers), but that PBS cuts 8 full minutes out of each episode, which I won't be able to see until Series 3 is on Netflix or DVD. Ugh.

    End of run on sentence rant. I have so many feels.

    1. Install Hola (browser plugin).
    2. Go to the website for the show you want to watch (in this case, BBC One has a Sherlock site).
    3. Tell Hola to tell the BBC website that you're in England.
    4. Watch Sherlock.

    There are many, many, less ethical ways of watching this in full, as it's released in the UK. I'm not condoning it, I'm just saying tv execs shouldn't be surprised when people opt for them.

  • grr arrgh

    I watched the second series online soon after it aired. I asked for and received the DVD set for Christmas. I think I'm even with the execs, those bastards. How dare they make me wait just because I'm 'Murrican!

  • thatsmrsnyder

    You can buy episodes on Amazon for a couple dollars the day after they air. Absolutely worth the money, IMO.

  • Colleen Griffin

    THANK YOU for telling me that. Saving up my pennies now!

  • NateMan

    John's definitely hetero. I think Sherlock's sexuality is much more of a line than a dot on any scale.

  • Kate at June

    New Year's Day...not Christmas.

    Or would they air Doctor Who and Sherlock on the same day? Christmas is cancelled due to no one caring.

    edit:oh, you were talking about the minisode on christmas day in the uk. alright then

    The people who homoerotocize anything involving two white men are weird.

  • bcarter3

    The people who are oblivious to the Holmes/Watson homoeroticism are willfully blind. (And can't spell "homoeroticize").

  • Jack Lewis

    Sure coz when Holmes acts like he has asperger syndrome the first thing that comes to mind is to anyone not lacking vision is homo-eroticism... If anything he appears like one of these asexuals that are the rage these days.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Also who homoeroticize scarves. Scarves are for everyone.

  • VonnegutSlut

    My kingdom for a gif of Cumberbatch jumping out of a cake wearing nothing but a scarf!

  • Uriah_Creep

    My kingdom consists of about $28 and a few loose quarters, so I hope yours is a little more valuable.

  • emmalita

    We could pool our resources. I've got 28 quarters and a few loose dollars.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Between your loose dollars and my loose quarters, there's a lot of money with questionable morals. If we get them together, they'll probably have an orgy.

  • emmalita

    Meaning that once again my money is having more fun than I am.
