Benedict Cumberbatch hasn’t been put off making more Sherlock (yet)
“Being in that show, it is a mini-Beatles thing.
“People’s expectations, some of it’s not fun anymore. It’s not a thing to be enjoyed."
Not keen on a series five then, it would seem, is old Martin. But the main draw, a one Mr. Benedict Cumberbatch, spoke to the same paper and had some stern words for his co-star, disagreeing with him rather vehemently:
“It’s pretty pathetic if that’s all it takes to let you not want to take a grip of your reality. What, because of expectations? I don’t know. I don’t necessarily agree with that …
“There’s a level of obsession where [the franchise] becomes [the fans’] even though we’re the ones making it. But I just don’t feel affected by that in the same way, I have to say.”
Ooooh, “pathetic” - what a come back. A fight between Cumberbatch and Freeman? Stranger things have happened.
Either way, and whoever wins, the future of the show is still uncertain, with other cast members like Andrew Scott (Moriarty) confirming fan fears. Appearing on The One Show, he quipped “I don’t think there’s another series of Sherlock coming soon. I think another general election would come first.”
Another general election doesn’t seem too far-fetched though, so maybe we'll see them back on our screens sooner than we think.
