Sherlock star Martin Freeman has revealed that plans to shoot the show’s fourth series later this year have now “fallen away”. Asked about when Series 4 will begin filming, the Fargo actor told The Guardian: “I don’t know. Really. I wish I did. I thought the plan was to do it in the autumn but…
As expected, not happening this year, sigh.
John: So, she’s alive then. How are we feeling about that?
Sherlock: Happy New Year, John.
John: Do you think you’ll be seeing her again?
Oh god, that was such a heart breaking scene…. and I love it so much.
Please… how can anyone watch this and not think this is a love story?
Where have the good times gone….?
whats very interesting is that for many people New Years is a romantic time and John instead of trying to hook up with some one has decided to stay in with Sherlock. this is also coming off of Sherlock discovering that John may have deeper feelings for him then friends.
so the fact that the two of them are spend the evening together with romantic lighting, having drinks and with Sherlock playing the violin for John it sets a tone. there is something changing. neither of them is going to stay anything or mention the change but there is a deepening of there relationship.
it’s just so sad that soon after this the fall happens all the the potential they were building up flatlines because Sherlock lies to John, something John can’t handle. it will be interesting in s4 to see the trust rebuild and them get back to this point and beyond
Oh my God, bless you!!
I think that’s for the best.
All I can see in this gifset is that giant Red Candle of Romance right by Sherlock’s face. It’s the prop equivalent of opening the pilot with a shot of the Cupid statue (I know it has a different name but it looks like a Cupid who cares what the Roman name is it’s a Cupid). When I try to figure out the purpose of something like a candle in a scene I consider how hard it is to shoot the thing: candles are quite difficult to shoot because you have to balance the lighting in the entire scene around the exposure and color temperature of the candle, and also, they melt over time, so they’d have to have lots of candles to swap out as the candle burned down to maintain continuity, and/or constantly snuff out the candle between takes. It was really fricking important to this scene to have these Red Candles of Romance there.
That is all.
