Sorry. I won't spoil anymore.

Re: Could S4 be the last one?

Anyway, resuming to normal service...
Today I've also been thinking about Steven's previous comment that Benedict and Martin only did S 4 for the sake of the fans.
It dawned on me...I guess HLV would have been a good ending point and possibly TAB would have been, too.
So I wondered if the Steven and Mark have been planning for the possible end game, for sometime.

Re: Could S4 be the last one?

I think the endings of both HLV and TAB were not exactly cliffhangers, but they did make the episodes feel unresolved.   I would have felt a little cheated if they had ended then (so what IS Moriarty going to do next?).

Re: Could S4 be the last one?

The bit about only doing it for the fans yes, which actually really irritated me at the time!

Re: Could S4 be the last one?

I don't know how much truth there is to that...I mean, he and Mark love writing the show and it seems the actors really enjoy being in it, too.  If they made more for the fans, they probably enjoyed it too, but also want the fans to know that they are appreciated.

Re: Could S4 be the last one?

Well, I'm over it anyway.
I love Steven too much to be cross with him.

Re: Could S4 be the last one?

Oh, has anybody seen Loo's lovely tweet? I don't know how to insert a tweet here, so you have to look by yourself please, it was this afternoon. It was a lovely and touching thank you to the fans and it sadly sounded like a farewell

"What place?"
"221B Baker Street."

Re: Could S4 be the last one?

Yes, I think we had it in the spoiler thread.  It was lovely.

Re: Could S4 be the last one?

I doubt they only did it for the fans as the money is also greatly appreciated. It was probably just Moffat talk...

What money? The leads come back on pure enthusiasm. If the writing gives them a challenge to work with, they'll come back again.
And Mark and Steven, well. Living your dream is the best payoff, isn't it?
The only one who's about money is probably BBC.

It's a BBC show. I highly doubt the money is much of an initiative there, not with the kind of offers Martin and Ben have. Sherlock by now is a passion project. It will continue as long and only if all the participants still want to do it.

Re: Could S4 be the last one?

Though I assume they do make some money off this show... considering the DVDs and merchandise sakes alone...

Re: Could S4 be the last one?

It certainly felt like the end.
But I'm happy.
They surpassed themselves and I can live with it, if we have to leave it here.

Re: Could S4 be the last one?

No problem stoertebaker - not everybody looks in the spoiler thread, so it's good to mention it here too!   Yes, it felt like a suitable end.

But, there's absolutely no reason why they couldn't write another series - just with the more mature Sherlock and John, and with those issues resolved.   I was absolutely delighted that no major characters died in TFP!

Re: Could S4 be the last one?

I still believe in a series 5. 

It could work as an end, I guess.. but it was a very open end and yes, I still, and will always believe in a series 5

Re: Could S4 be the last one?

I know they all say they want to make another series, and it's certainly possible that they will. However, TFP was certainly written as a proper ending of the series.
