All right, so I've just uploaded the first excerpt of the theme song I've been working, which include vocals and some additional changes to both the lyrics and the arrangement.

And here are the new lyrics (so far):

Confusion clouds my mind
the screams of pain unheard
Entangled in your web of lies
Here I am, fallen from grace

I can't see ahead of me
Anything I muster dies away
I'm being strangled by my own doubt
with your hands at my neck and your laughter echoing in my head

All I need is to breathe
All I need is to remember

I'm a survivor
You've sent me down to hell
and watched me burn in your scorching flames
But its from those pit that I'll arise
and from those wounds that I'll grow stronger

'Cause I'm a fighter
Strike me, but you can't push me back
Stab me, but you can't bring me down
You can shatter all of my bones
but you'll never ever break my will

I owe you a fall, oh...

Oh, and as usual, feedback is always greatly appreciated; I know that there's a lot that needs to be worked on, but it helps me a lot if people can pinpoint the bad/the flaws of my works so I can improve a lot faster. ;D

Thanks for your time, and see ya 'round!

Hey Jayhan!

Welcome to the forum. You sound very creative and interesting!

And OMG you live in Switzerland...have you been to the Reichenbach Falls?!!!
*excited Sherlockian dance*

Thanks! And yes I have. It's a pretty impressive, gorge, but it's... um, "gorgeous" when water shoots out (there's an on/off switch for that). The closest village, Meiringen, has a Sherlock museum dedicated to that famous place.
And that museum is the size of a cabin. No joke. XD

Actually it's quite litterally the size of a chaple. (And in case I'm not being clear I mean that's in a chaple. And there is an underground extention.) So, yeah, basically I've been there too. Twice since I'm a Sherlockian and apperently once before that I can't remember... Damn.

So I suppose I'm meant to say welcome but it's seems wrong since I litterally just made my profile... Welcome anyways!

Oh and I'm Swiss-Canadian, eh, and also live in Switzerland. Eh. (No, I don't say that, particularly often, it's just fun, eh.) I live in Zurich what about you, Jayhan? It would be really cool if we could meet up or something! :3

So that's all for now.
See ya fellow Sherlockians.

Oh my GAWD, another Swiss Sherlockian?!?! AWESOME!!!
So nice to meet you, and welcome to this website!
Zurich, 'ey? That's a bit far, but still in Switzerland nonetheless; I live in Lausanne!!
Yeah, we should totally meet up sometime! I'm really curious if there are many Swiss Sherlockians, actually...

Well, Benedict didn't really say that there was going to be a season 4... He was actually just joking around. In reality, he "genuinely doesn't know".
But I guess it's too late to take that back since the whole fandom exploded. Now, Moffat and Gatiss are forced to work on the next series. Oh, Benedict...
....God I love this fandom. XD

Hi there, Baldwin, and welcome to this forum! It's amazing to know that we have someone here who had previously worked with Martin Freeman. I've heard so many great things about this movie and would absolutely love to see it! Will it be available on the net/tv/dvd?

As I said I really like Graham amd I normally enjoy both his radio and TV shows.
The 1st time Martin  was his guest(on TV), it was genuinely funny.
We have to accept it's peak viewing. popular TV and is meant to be outrageous comedy.
For me they didn't even use the best examples of the art work and were kind of making fun of the fans...
Whether or not it was good publicity for the show, I don't know.
I guess Martin is know for racy humour...
Anyhow, glad they made a ton of money for charity.

EDIT:  this has just been posted on Twitter...but it may have been because of watershed issues:

Re-watching Richard Curtis on comic relief - he is still very moved by it all. They have edited out the #Sherlock fanfic bit.


Could you post the source, please? And wait, "fanfic"? As in fanfiction? Are you sure they didn't mix it up with fanart?
And honestly, what do they mean by being moved? Shocked?

Yesterday was the first time where I actually watched the Graham Norton show, and I discovered for the first time yesterday how Graham - or at least his show - tends to be explicit. I'm quite sensitive about this sort of fanart or this kind of crude humor in general, and I really didn't enjoy this interview because it was so badly conducted. While it was meant for a good cause - nice idea with charity - I don't think that Graham was sincere in this interview or even showing great interest to his guests. All what mattered to him was to break the world record.
I was gonna say I'm disappointed that the interview with Martin Freeman was so short, but on the contrary, I'm actually really relieved. If this interview had dragged on, maybe Graham would have started reading Mature-rated fanfiction to the whole world or God knows what.
If you want great interviews who ask interesting/funny questions, you can either count on Stephen Colbert or Jake Hamilton.

LOL, I just watched the one with Martin Freeman.
They showed Johnlock fanart. I don't particularly like some of those, but wow... Some of them were really EXPLICIT.
And to answer your question, no, not for the time being... I think you're gonna have to wait a while till it's available on the net.
I'm watching it via DVR, since I can't stay up to watch everything. I'll watch more of it tomorrow... If it's interesting.

Thanks so much for posting this, Russell!! It was definitely a big effort for you, so I appreciate you doing this! It's really cool of 'em to come all together and answer our questions. Just shows how awesome they are. XD
Oh, and the one with Ian McKellen? If anybody's interested, I could post 'em here, too... They're pretty funny. ;D

Will there be an extended Version?

There should be box sets with multiple disks (same as LOTR) released about five years after the films first come out - if they follow same trend as LOTR. Harry Potter series is also getting massive DVD sets released even though the entire series has finished up.

I think you're referring to LotR's Blu Ray release. In the case of the Hobbit, I don't think it'll take that long; If memory serves me correct, it took less than a year for each film till an extended version was released. For the Hobbit, I'm convinced it'll take much less than that, at least three months.

Hey guys! So this is kind of related, kind of not. I know this is a forum of people addicted mainly to a few actors in particular, but seeing as most of us are pretty excited about Hobbit stuff, we can agree that Richard Armitage rocks, too.... right? ;)

And being as it was pretty cool of Martin to stop by and tweet through them with the fans for a moment, I thought you'd like to know that (maybe after the popularity of Martin's visit detailed in the above thread..... maybe because they're just making the rounds of cool movie plugs all the way to the release...), Richard Armitage is doing the same tomorrow! Just so happened to notice when I curiously re-checked the feed to see if there had been anything new since. No idea what time, but should be fun!

Agreed; I thought that was really cool from the people of the Hobbit to give us fans a chance to ask the actors some questions... WHICH IS WHY I ALREADY POSTED MY QUESTION 10 MINUTES AFTER THEY ANNOUNCED IT. HAH. XP

Yeah, since we're talking about twitter feeds related to the Hobbit, we can always keep it in this topic, since I know that it won't be active after a while...

Oh, did you see the one with Sir Ian McKellen? That was so hilarious! One fan asked him if he ever used on of Gandalf's quotes. Sir McKellen replied: "Visiting schools, I have warned students that if they don't revise hard for their exams: You shall not pass!"

That's a funny reaction you've got there, Doctor... It hints out that you're speechless, yet surprised.
It would have been my first reaction had Mr Freeman answered my question... Isn't that right...


(If I got this wrong, then sorry for the confusion. I like the drama. XP )

Martin Freeman: Absolutely, I've only read #TheHobbit and not LOTR.

Catherine_17: What was your favourite location to film at in NZ?

Martin Freeman: I would say a mountain range called The Remarkables. Absolutely beautiful.

Lisamkossmann: Do you see any of Dr. Watson in Bilbo Baggins?

Martin Freeman: No, not a whole lot. Same actor plays him.

ginaBLANKD: If you lived in Middle Earth, would you be a hobbit, a dwarf or an elf? Greeting from Mexico!

Martin Freeman: Yes. Yes, I would. I did.

Actually, I finally made an account to post some random questions. AAHIFSOFOSF I COULDN'T RESIST! XD

But it's true; Mr Freeman doesn't actually have a twitter account, so the fact that he even bothers to answer us via twitter is so cool from his side. I'm just wondering how he's handling the jet lag; I mean, he'll be answering the questions 8 minutes from now, and it'll be 02:30 am for him...

Well, he'll get himself a well-deserved rest after answering some crazy questions from crazy fans. XD
