‘Sherlock’ at SDCC

Sherlock is set to make an appearance at the San Diego Comic-Con festival for the first time – although stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are unlikely to attend.

Co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are among those who will bring the BBC One show to the San Diego convention, which showcases comic books, science fiction, fantasy, film and TV.

They are expected to join producer Sue Vertue in a Q&A session which reportedly promises ‘surprises’.

Whether or not this will include footage from the forthcoming third series, or any hints as to how Sherlock may have survived his apparently fatal fall at the end of series two, remains unclear.

It is the first time that the show will have been a part of the San Diego Comic-Con festival – although it has previously been featured in the event’s New York counterpart.

The festival is due to kick off in the Californian city on July 18.

The third series of Sherlock went into production earlier this year, although plot details have been kept under wraps so far.

However Gatiss did reveal on Twitter that thefirst episode in the new series is entitled The Empty Hearse, while other images posted by Vertue suggest a wedding may feature in series three.

No transmission date has yet been confirmed for the new series, with Gatiss also forced to recently deny rumours that it would be on screens in September.
