Repeated last night, but why?

Yep, on BBC3. My dad was at a friend's house and he told me this morning that he caught the end of it and wanted to know if I've seen it. So I looked it up, scroll down a bit:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree/programmes/schedules/2013/12/06

With Series 3 so near, I have to wonder if there's a reason for this. Or am I just over-analysing? XD

If you look at the previous Friday, you see that they repeated Scandal. And next week they're repeating TRF. I think we all remember what happened the last time they repeated Series 2 ^^ but I haven't seen anything indicating a particular reason for the repeats. Maybe it's just because of Series 3 being close?

Do we really need reasons for Sherlock on TV? http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

It's being repeated because God loves us and wants us to be happy.

If I remember correctly they gave us the first Teaser after repeating TRF. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: Repeated last night, but why?

They are being repeated now as a lead in to the new series. That way, following the hype during the hiatus and the higher profile both its main players now have, they would hope to pick up even more viewers prior to the new series being aired.
Plus it will refresh the memories that have not been avidly watching the past series on DVD for what seems like an eternity.

Re: Repeated last night, but why?

I figured that was it, but with so much happening lately I had to wonder ^^

Just my thoughts. Not everybody is a die-hard fan. They recently did the same with "The Walking Dead" in Germany, repeated the last season and started the new one. But in this case right one after another.

Re: Repeated last night, but why?

This something commonly done now with popluar shows.  It's really good marketing.

I think it's so we can all refresh our minds before the 3rd series. Love this episode!http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
