Despite its flaws, few shows have gathered the fandom that the BBC’s Sherlock has and with Sherlock and Watson – Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman – being so busy with other projects, the series’ future filming schedule is up in the air, but Freeman (above, left) assures us that all is not lost…

As we already know, show runners Steven Moffatt and Mark Gatiss have already planned out another two years’ of stories, but actually filming them could be an issue. The Guardian newspaper caught up with Martin Freeman, promoting his new series Fargo, about the future: “I thought the plan was to do it in the autumn but apparently that’s fallen away. We’re all busy. But I’m ready. I’m there. It depends if you want to make time for it. I hope we do. I love it.”

Speaking to Cultbox, Freeman expanded on plans for the series: “Mark Gatiss may beat me up, but there is an idea for this one-off special that’s such a good idea, and as I was listening to it, I thought, ‘We’ve just got to do this.

“It’s a fantastic, really mouth-watering idea. But I really don’t know when we are going to get to do it.”

So it looks like everyone is willing, the question is when will the game be afoot? When we know, you’ll know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
