We can only guess what the 3 teaser words that co-creators Mark Gatiss gave a while back (rat, wedding, bow), but we have a title for the second episode of season 3 of Sherlock, along with more speculation as to what it means:
Now it’s time to get ready for a lot more speculation. According to the Radio Times, Moffat and Gatiss have today revealed that the title of the second episode will be “The Sign of Three”, though they declined to offer any specific plot details about the episode, which will be filmed back-to-back with “The Empty Hearse” this spring. The script for the episode was written by Steven Thompson, who also penned season 2′s shocking finale, “The Reichenbach Fall”.
The name of the episode carries particular significance for fans who follow both the books and the show, as it references Doyle’s short story, “The Sign of the Four”, in which Watson meets the love of life, Mary Morstan, to whom he eventually proposes marriage. Aside from the two sleuths, Morstan is the main character in “The Sign of the Four” – a young woman from a wealthy background who begs Sherlock to investigate the disappearance of her father.
And check out some photos of Benedict Cumberbatch and guest star (and Martin Freeman‘s real-life partner) Amanda Abbington that were taken sometime during filming of an episode. I can’t speculate which episode this is, but just looking at them gets me too excited for a show that we won’t be seeing until early next year. *sigh*
