5 Clues About BBC Sherlock Holmes Season 4

“Sherlock” is a British-American crime drama TV series created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, which presents a contemporary adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes detective stories. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Doctor John Watson. The first series of three episodes aired in 2010, while series two aired in 2012, and a third series aired in the first quarter of 2014. The third series has become the UK's most watched drama series since 2001.A single episode aired in 2016, as a Victorian-era special. Sherlock has been sold to over 200 territories.

Production and filming for “Sherlock” Season 4 has already began production in London, England. The series is expected to premiere around January 2017 first and exclusive on BBC.

Before every season of Sherlock, creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat have released three words to hint at possible storylines and characters in the upcoming season. For Season 2, it was "Woman, Hound, Fall." For Season 3, it was "Rat, Wedding, Bow." Instead of words this time, the season 4 clues are: Thatcher, Smith and Sherrinford and extra clues given by Martin Freeman.


The most obvious candidate for Thatcher's identity is, of course, former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Thatcher was mentioned in the Season 2 episode "The Hounds of Baskerville" when Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) deduced that the project H.O.U.N.D password was "Maggie." John Watson (Martin Freeman) also wrote an old blog post titled "The Six Thatchers." In the blog post, Sherlock solves the murder of an art student that involved the burglary of several pottery figures of Margaret Thatcher. However, since both the storylines in "The Hounds of Baskerville" and the blog post are presumably over, it's not yet clear how Thatcher will be included in Season 4.


Smith, although a common name, most likely refers to Culverton Smith, the antagonist of the Arthur Conan Doyle short story "The Adventures of the Dying Detective." In the short story, Sherlock Holmes feigns illness to trick Culverton Smith into confessing to his nephew's murder. It has been revealed that actor Toby Jones will be the main antagonist of Sherlock Season 4 and portray an updated version of Culverton Smith.


Arthur Conan Doyle originally considered using the name Sherrinford Holmes before deciding on Sherlock Holmes for his detective stories. However, in 1962, author William S. Baring-Gould wrote a fictional biography for Sherlock Holmes in which Sherrinford is the eldest brother of Sherlock and Mycroft.Holmes. In the Season 3 finale, Mycroft (Mark Gatiss) mentions the existence of a third Holmes brother, but not by name. Although Sherrinford is not a canon character from Doyle's original short stories, it seems very likely that Sherrinford will be the third Holmes brother in the BBC series.
In addition, rumor has it that "Thor" star Tom Hiddleston will join the cast for the 4th installment of "Sherlock". According to Unreality TV, the 35-year-old English actor is said to portray Sherrinford, the third brother of the Holmes family. Such rumors stemmed when series creator Mark Gatiss admitted that he loves to have Hiddleston on the show however, he found it difficult to cast the actor due to his tight schedule


Rumor has it that cast member Andrew Scott may come back to “Sherlock” Season 4 to resurrect his role as professor Jim Moriarty. Such rumors stemmed when spoilers have surfaced that the role of the 39-year-old Irish film, TV, and stage actor may rise from the dead as a zombie. Moriarty was killed off in the previous season, Breathe Cast has reported.

5.Mary Morstan

Cast member Martin Freeman who plays the character of Doctor Watson hinted a major detail about the Mary Morstan (Amanda Abbington). Freeman revealed via Star Mine News that Mary will die in the forthcoming season at the course of a complicated childbirth.
