Sherlock – 2nd season confirmed

Sherlock BBC

While it can hardly come as a surprise, it is certainly good news to hear that the BBC will be commissioning a second season of Sherlock.

Producer Sue Vertue, along with husband and co-creator Steven Moffat were on BBC Breakfast this morning, and confirmed a second season will be forthcoming. Obviously the main issue will be Moffat finding the time to write more Sherlock as he’s currently entrenched in Doctor Who once again.

While the first season was not without it’s issues, the racial stereotyping in The Blind Banker, the Bechdelfail in all three episodes and the Moriarty reveal, to name but three, the response to the show has been mostly positive, and could well be a flagship for BBC Drama.

Now all we have to do is wait for the damn thing to be made… *taps fingers impatiently*

  1. Good news indeed. Hopefully Moffat can find some spare time away from running Doctor Who to bring us at least six new stories (rather than just the three) next year.

    I think Moriarty was unveiled too soon, but I did like the very explicit way they painted him as the polar opposite of Sherlock – very similar men with very similar talents but totally opposed views.

    If you’re interested, I have penned a review of the season just finished over at my blog – I would welcome your thoughts and comments on what has been a very promising debut!

  2. Yes, I definitely hope they’ll fix the show’s issues–i gritted my teeth through ‘The Blind Banker’ and WHY, IN 2011, IS SHERLOCK HOLMES STILL A WHITE BOYS’ CLUB?!! Seriously, there’s no reason for it anymore.
