Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Haha. You're right, they don't have to be there for the story to continue, but I think especially Mrs. Hudson would be missed if she couldn't be on the show anymore.

Definitely!

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

She sure would be, and if Moffat and Gatiss don't want to deprive the viewers of her, they need to schedule the next shooting schedule within the next few years.

With that said, I would like to see Wanda and Tim come back, too!

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

We can all hope for all sorts.
But the fact remains: if Benedict and Martin are unavailable, it ain't going to happen.
Mark and Steven's schedules are not the problem.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Yeah, I think so, too. It's great that they're getting more jobs and more well-known (since they're great actors), but it does make it difficult to make more Sherlock.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

More difficult, but hopefully, not impossible.  At the very least, they could produce another one-shot special before producing another season.  Their schedules would surely allow for that.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Who knows?
They both seem pretty busy.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

I think they want to focus on other things now. Both their careers are skyrocketing at the moment and they want to take full advantage of that. We all know how ficle Hollywood and TV are - if they don't jump on the ball now, it will soon be too late. 

We fans might want another season, but its their lives and their careers. That is much more important than whatever we want, in my opinion.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Yes, of course. I agree. And besides, just because it would be nice to see more Sherlock doesn't mean we also wouldn't enjoy seeing them in other films. Because I do like to see that!

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

I have no doubt in my mind that we will eventually get more Sherlock. 
Just can't tell you when.
I will be happy whenever it happens.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

I'm with you, tonnaree!  I will say this to the end. I believe in series 5 or at least a special. Until I hear 'The end' I'm having my hopes up. And I'm willing to wait, I understand the boys being busy... and there's no way I'd want Sherlock without Ben or Martin!

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

There's no way they would do it without Benedict or Martin...and they both have to be ready and willing.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

I did wonder some time ago (before TAB) about the idea of doing a prequel with a child or teen Sherlock, if the actors weren't available.   But of course, that was before S4 which gives us Sherlock's defining childhood background anyway (although maybe it might still be worth seeing the Carl Powers story?).   I suppose that if they couldn't get Martin or Benedict a prequel (or sequel, with much older characters) would be better than nothing.   The trouble is that so much of Sherlock's success seems to be due to those actors and their chemistry.   They would be an extremely tough act to follow.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Mark and Steven have both said they wouldn't do it without Benedict or Martin.

I think this may be the one thing we can ALL universally agree on.  http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

I'm going to be a lone voice then! I wouldn't be as interested in watching, but if it really was a choice between no Sherlock at all and Sherlock without Benedict/Martin, I'd go for the latter.  The only way I could see it working was with an age difference (having Sherlock by very much younger or older than he is now).   I think it would have a very different feel with different actors.  And I think that some of the difficulty would be in having to act an elderly Benedict's Sherlock, rather than the actor being able to create her own version.   However, we've already had child flashbacks which have kind of worked ... I would be interested to see what an accomplished actor could do with the elderly version.

Of course, my dream was that they would keep doing it until Benedict and Martin were elderly themselves!  But that's possibly even more unlikely than them having a special with different actors!

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Frankly, I am not sure this would work for the majority of fans. Many complained about S3 and even more about S4 that there was not enough of the Sherlock and John show. While I really enjoyed for example "Mr Holmes", I think most people are so attached to Benedict and Martin playing these roles, that a version completely without them would not work.

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Oh I agree, Susi.  I don't think there would be much interest in it.  This is just what I personally would want.  Moftiss have taken Sherlock and John down a rather different route.  It feels as if they've only just now led into "classic" territory, but I'd be interested to see where it goes in the end. I don't want to let these particular characters go!

Re: These "series 4 is the last" rumours

Actually, if I could decide between Sherlock with no Ben or Martin or no Sherlock at all, I would go with the latter.
