No, they just don't have a crystal ball.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Sounds great! They never closed the lid on this, I just got the impression that Ben and Martin wanted a break because they had so much else going on. And still do.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Here is a report from Sherlocked UK by someone who talked to Sue:

Sherlocked report #9. Had a lovely time at the cocktail party. Our group got to speak to Sue Vertue and I asked in a sly way about S5 by asking whether it was up to the BBC to commission another series and she said no, the beeb would love to have more series made as, (my words not hers) it’s quite a money spinner for them. It really is down to Mark and Steven getting time to write it first of all. She said that hopefully she’d like to get them together early next year to discuss things like what the plot would be etc. Then they’d have to write a draft plot line and see if primarily Ben and Martin would be up for doing it with that plot. Then she’d have to send Mark and Steven away on holiday together to write as it worked so well for s4. Then they’d have to sort out the logistics of Ben n Martins schedules. Ben has been working pretty much non stop for a year and Martins not far behind in the constant workloads. So in short she herself is hopeful that a S5 will happen but even if she pushed them to write super speed they have Dracula to get through its first season first and then they’d have to work out when B & M could film. She said that they hope that Dracula will film next year for a possible 2019 release (they’ve not started writing it properly at all, just a draft plot.) So Sherlocked wouldn’t be able to start to film at the earliest until a few months after Dracula has wrapped. So I’m figuring that would mean a very late 2019 or mid 2020 release at its best possible. I’m so sorry I can’t relay any better news than that, but at least we know now that the BBC and Hartswood are both keen to do it. Let’s face it, the Sherlock fandom is used to long hiatuses! !

So it seems with a bit of luck there will be more.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Possibly to bring people more up-to-date or something, I don't know.
I have just sat and watched Mark on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch...in fact I think it's still on.
He is still giving the consistent line about Sherlock: all want to do more, but at the moment, Benedict and Martin just too busy.
They could leave it where it is, or they could pick it up in future if possible.
EDIT: Mark did reiterate that it is the first time they have been actually been in the position of having no plans to make any more Sherlock.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

They have been telling us this about Benedict and Martin since after S1 aired.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

I know and I never really took it seriously until this time...
Plus, it has just got worse and worse...obviously.
Oh and Mark referred to Sherlocked and said he wasn't able to attend this time...even he's busy!

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Thanks for the update!  It's good to know what the process is.  2019 is earlier than I would even have hoped for (if it at all!), so good to know that's actually a possibility.  It does sound like it might be the scheduling that would cause problems, as we suspected.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

I am not a gambling person, but I still reckon we won't see any more Sherlock within 5 years...if at all.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Hard to say for now. It was cool to read what Sue had to say about the process.of creating a series of Sherlock.

My pleasure. I found it quite a positive and uplifting read.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

A good read indeed, thanks for sharing. I personally don't have any hopes for it to be as early as 2019 or 2020, to be honest. Because they did say it wouldn't be for at least five years (or something along those lines, I just remember five years being mentioned as the very earliest). I got the impression that both Ben and Martin was ready to let Sherlock go for the moment to focus on other things in their career. Not saying that they would never do it again, but that they wouldn't prioritize it for the near (ie: five years) future. 

Which I have no trouble understanding at all.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

I think it also depends a bit on how they want to do this. I mean, the biological clock is ticking for Una, Wanda, and Tim. And S5 without Una would be a very sad thing. I heard she was joking about Mrs Hudson needing a stair lift if they waited too long ...

Yes, and that's one of the points I've made.  If they wait too long, Una, Wanda, and Tim will be just fond memories by the time they ever get around to it, and I cannot see a Sherlock series without Mrs. Hudson.  If they're going to tape one final season before they call it quits permanently, they need to do it soon, while those three still have the health to act in it.

2019 or 2020 is only 2 or 3 years from now, so if the 5th season can be aired in either of those 2 years, the wait won't be any longer than it's been for the previous 4 seasons.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Personally I don't think planning of Sherlock will involve considerations of that trio still being alive, though I obviously hope they will be.
IF we ever do get another series, or episode...it only essentially needs Sherlock and John.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

I'd agree with that.  Sherlock's family story has been kind of resolved, so no real reason for Wanda and Tim to appear again (although I would be delighted if they did!).  Mrs Hudson is canon and I'm sure they'd love for her to continue, but perhaps a niece/sister/relative could take over.

I'm hoping for the sister!
