Sherlock to return for Special and Fourth Season

The BBC has just confirmed via a series of Tweets, using the hashtag #221back (confused? See the featured image above) that the hit show Sherlock will indeed return.

Details are still a bit sketchy, but it's pretty clear that Andrew Scott as Moriarty will feature heavily – you may remember his appearance right at the end of last season, as a teaser for the new season.

The fact that he took over the BBC's twitter account for the duration of the tweets may have been a pretty obvious clue too!

Filming is due to begin on January 2015. Whilst this does appear to be a long way off yet, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise really, considering how difficult it must be to get both Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch together at the same time!

What we do know is that there will be a one-off special, most likely a Christmas Special, and this will be followed by a three episode fourth season.

Stay tuned for official release dates the minute there come available!

First pic of Ben Whishaw as Q in Skyfall

Fans of the BBC's The Hour would have been rightly excited when the announcement was made a little while back that Ben Whishaw had even cast to star alongside Daniel Craig as Q in Sam Mendes' upcoming Bond installment Skyfall.

Albeit a massive departure from the Q we're used to seeing in Bond movies, with the iconic Desmond Llewelyn filling the role for so many years, to be followed briefly (and somewhat less successfully in my opinion) by John Cleese in the Pierce Brosnan Bond era, Whishaw is a fine acting talent, and I for one am looking forward to seeing what he can bring to the role.

Well now we catch a glimpse of what the new Q will look like. Not much to go on, but they're clearly tapping into the current computer-geek chic look that's so popular.

What do you think? Will he be a hit?

Skyfall has a release date in the UK of the 26th October 2012, a release date of the 9th November for Canada and the US, and a release date of the 22nd November 2012 in Australia.
