Welcome to The Batch on Sunday: Your Online-Home For All Things CumberVic
The Batch on Sunday reports!
We do realise that technically it is a Wednesday, but decided to make an exception – it is a rather special day after all: “Sherlock has been gone for two years. But someone isn’t quite convinced that he’s dead.”
Alright, Anderson. You’re not the only one suspecting that Sherlock is on his way back. What we all want to know however is … how on earth did he make it off that roof in one piece?!
Molly Hooper has been keeping silent on the matter, sworn to secrecy by Sherlock himself no doubt. The Batch on Sunday team has been similarly stumped and impressed in equal measure by how closely the secret has been guarded by all those lucky Sherlock fans who have attended the recent screening of new episode The Empty Hearse. The show’s creators have done a good job on them.
Despite the flurry of theories on Buzzfeed, all we know is that the world’s only consulting detective cheated death, and that it wasn’t as straightforward a trick as some may think.
There are only a few more hours’ wait for UK viewers until they will finally find out how it was done. The elusive detective is making his way back to our screens. What are a few hours more after a whole two years and for those of you who have not yet seen the seven minute prequel on offer from the BBC, here it is: Many Happy Returns to you.
“Primarily the focus is about them [John and Sherlock] reuniting,” Cumberbatch revealed when interviewed about The Empty Hearse episode which will be broadcast on BBC One at 9pm later this evening, on the 1st January.
That’s all for now. Hope you had a very Merry Cumberbatch.
Here’s to a Happy New Sherlock!
