Finally! Series four Sherlock is confirmed but not only that. There will be a special episode before the new season. Sue Vertue, on twitter, has announced that the episode with go for around 90 minutes long. Filming of the episode will begin early 2015 and series¬†four filming will follow soon after that. It’s far to early for release dates of the episodes but we are hoping it will be before 2016.


“Series Four! At last! It’s always special to return to Sherlock but this time it’s even more special as we’re doing…a Special! Not only THAT, we’ll then be shooting three more episodes which will take Sherlock and John Watson into deeper and darker water than ever before…The whole ‘Sherlock’ team are terrifically excited to return for four new adventures. The Game is on ‚ÄĒ again!” co-creator and actor Mark Gatiss wrote.

BBC One tweeted:¬†We’re ready to unleash the most shocking and surprising series of yet. The only thing is to expect is the unexpected…

The Penguins of Madagascar


The wolf, in the picture above this text, is the character that Benedict will be playing (voice) in the new film The Penguins of Madagascar. I am pleased to announce that the movie opens in November 26th, 2014! You all must see it! For those who don’t know what the movie is about, here is a bit of a summary from moviefone.

Skipper (Tom McGrath), Kowalski (Chris Miller), Rico (John DiMaggio) and Private (Christopher Knights) join forces with a super-secret animal organization called North Wind to fight a many-tentacled menace named Dave, an octopus who has made it his mission to kill off all the penguins. We knew there was a reason why those deep sea creatures have always creeped us out! (Naturally, Dave is voiced by¬†John Malkovich.) North Wind’s leader, Classified, is voiced by none other than Benedict Cumberbatch; he’s joined by¬†Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, and¬†Peter Stormare¬†as the voices behind North Wind.

Benedict Cumberbatch Makes Math Look Exciting


Whether it‚Äôs Sherlock Holmes or¬†Star Trek‚Äôs¬†Khan, Benedict Cumberbatch is known for portraying complex, nuanced characters. Still, the actor (above) felt a particular responsibility to dig deep when it came time to play brilliant cryptographer Alan Turing‚ÄĒthe British mathematician who deciphered Nazi codes during WWII and was later prosecuted for being gay‚ÄĒin¬†The Imitation Game. (Out Nov. 21, the film costars, right, Keira Knightley, Matthew Beard, Matthew Goode, and Allen Leech.) ‚ÄúHe‚Äôs an exceptional man,‚ÄĚ says Cumberbatch, who prepped for the role by painstakingly perfecting Turing‚Äôs stuttering cadences and studying his correspondence with the mother of his high school crush. ‚ÄúI hope this film does justice to this unsung hero.‚Ä̬†‚ÄĒ¬†NICOLE SPERLING
