SHERLOCK SEASON THREE ON DVD
Sleuths of all ages cannot get enough of Sherlock. The Steven Moffat/Mark Gatiss show is more popular than ever and the American television debut of the latest season has been greatly anticipated.
This week BBC America issued a press release with details about the series forthcoming DVD release on Blu-ray and DVD February 11, 2014 from BBC Home Entertainment.
It’s been nearly two years since Sherlock Holmes seemingly fell to his death in the epic second season finale of Sherlock, and since then all anyone has wanted to know is: how did he survive? The question is finally answered when London’s greatest consulting detective returns in Sherlock: Season Three.
The third season of Sherlock premieres in the US on MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! on PBS on January 19, 2014. Earlier this month, the season premiere was watched by 9.2 million viewers on BBC One in the UK, making it the most-watched episode of Sherlock ever. Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch, Star Trek: Into Darkness, 12 Years a Slave) and Dr. John Watson (Martin Freeman, The Hobbit, The World’s End) reteam in three brand new action-packed adventures of the Emmy®-nominated series that USA Today called “TV pleasure at its most intense…”
There are three stories in the season and the action picks up two years after the intense finale of Season Two. BBC America has provided information on each of the episodes.
The Empty Hearse
Dr. John Watson has gotten on with his life, a new job, a new romance and a comforting domestic future beckon. But with London under threat of a huge terrorist attack, Sherlock Holmes is about to rise from the grave with all the theatricality that comes so naturally to him. It’s what Watson wanted more than anything, but if Sherlock thinks everything will be just as he left it, he’s in for a very big surprise…
The Sign of Three
Sherlock faces his biggest challenge of all, delivering a Best Man’s speech on John’s wedding day. But all isn’t quite as it seems. There is mortal danger stalks the reception, and someone might not make it to the happy couple’s first dance.
His Last Vow
In the series finale, a case of stolen letters leads Sherlock Holmes into a long conflict with Charles Augustus Magnussen, the Napoleon of blackmail, and the one man he truly hates. But how do you tackle a foe who knows the personal weakness of every person of importance in the Western world.
The two disc DVD and Blu Ray releases of Season Three will include three special behind the scenes featurettes, The Fall, Fans, Villains & Speculation: The Legacy of Sherlock Holmes and Shooting Sherlock.
