Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Good point about prison, Nakahara.  No, it's not at all exciting on its own, but I suppose it depends what they make of it - but maybe some sort of incarceration or exile which is impossible to get out of might mean there's a natural gap.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Somehow that does not make sense at all. How could the story influence the production? With make-up and special effects and all that...

And besides, they have fallen behind already, storywise. It should be 2013/2014 in the show, right?

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

And to say I had the chance to discover the show all at once ! Binge watching the 3 seasons plus the special and the pilot ! *facepalm* I'm so spoiled... But at the same time I feel I've missed to much, when I read everything the fandom went through after the fall...
Well, like besleybean said, we'll have to wait even longer until season 5 so I guess I'll have to learn to be patient.

I think it would be more than just jumping ahead in time.   It would involve something else (retirement, incarceration, even death of a main character - or maybe something even bigger, a change to the world around them if they moved into "the future") which would make it seem that there must be a time delay before the next one.  That's all I can think at the moment.   And yes, I've been really curious about them being behind, time-wise, and wondered if they were going to jump farther ahead in S4 (or even back - EMP, flashback, etc.).   As I mentioned, setlock has given me a lot to think about it, but I don't want to talk about it in this thread in case not everybody has wanted to follow it!

Hmmm, but Schmiezi has a point - this things could easily dealt with within the storyline itself and should not require any delays in our RL world.

Also, considering how Amanda Abbington wasn´t even informed that Mary would shoot Sherlock.... are actors really aware of the plot points planned by creators? Can they really judge the actual lenght of a hiatus between seasons?

Plus, the change in "regularity" certainly feels different to actors than to their audience. The audience only sees the finished product so the waiting seems unending to them. But actors were just a short time ago involved in filming and post-production of TAB, then they filmed S4 almost immediately, to them it certainly seems like hiatuses are just the short flashes of time.... "regularity" can have different meaning to them than to us.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

That's a good point, nakahara. Extensive post-production could lengthen the hiatus. Interesting thought ...

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Yes, I agree, Nakahara, but I was also wondering ... they've kept things contemporary up until now, even if it has fallen a couple of years behind, but if they jumped into the actual future, the storyline might require that they wait to catch up.   I can't think of an example, but it could be marked by some major but predictable event (like the death of the queen.  Although the timing of that is probably TOO unpredictable!). 

I'm not a writer, so can't think of any more exciting plot reasons, so something time-orientated is what's springing to mind.   And I'm still wondering if there is going to be some tie-in to real life events (television history).

The other alternative is, I know Benedict is very articulate and intelligent, but he does sometimes just seem to let the words flow and doesn't always say exactly what he means.   It may just be that we're all misinterpreting because of the way he's put it.  But I do get the impression that he's saying something we will see in S4 (presumably the last episode) will make us not expect to see another episode soon after.

Yes, personally I lean towards this possibility.
But we will see, of course.

He got another chance to deny it again on BBC 2, and it sounds even more convincing now that it won't be the last!

Hmm, I don't know. He said it was definitely not the last season, but then the host mentioned a long hiatus and Benedict enjoyed this wording too much for my liking!

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

And again he said that we would understand when we saw the series, why there might be a long hiatus. I can't wait - and I am starting to seriously dread - watching S4 and the end of it.
