During this lull in Sherlockian movie or TV viewing (Elementary had a rerun over Thanksgiving) I am trying to catch up on Sherlock Holmes films I have either not seen at all, or it has been a while since I viewed them.

'Unlike Jonny Lee Miller, Benedict Cumberbatch wants his Watson to remain a man.
There is an all-male Twelfth Night in the West End, and an all-female Julius Caesar opening later this month, but Benedict Cumberbatch has no intention of following Jonny Lee Miller’s example and working with a female Dr Watson as his pal did in the series Elementary.
“After working with with Martin [Freeman], I could never imagine Watson being a woman,” the Sherlock star assures me at a party to celebrate Spencer Hart’s 10th anniversary at the Brompton Club . “Martin is established as Watson.
“I have seen the pilot and one other episode of Elementary – I think it’s great. It works with Lucy playing Watson and she's a good actress, but I don’t think you could do that here with Sherlock.”
'Elementary, the US adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective series, sees Miller take the lead role while Dr Watson, who is conventionally a man, is portrayed by the former Charlie’s Angels actress, Lucy Liu.
“It’s not that I think it doesn’t work in the States, it’s just Martin has been established as Watson and you can’t change that.”
'Cumberbatch is due to start filming the third series of Steven Moffat's Sherlock next January. "I'm really looking forward to it," he says, adding he hopes the next series will be "bigger and better" than before.'
[SPOILER WARNING: Because some people apparently aren't familiar with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories and characters that have been around since the late 1800s. The following contains plot points and possible spoilers for future episodes of BBC's Sherlock as well as a tiny recap of "The Reichenbach Fall". ]
When we last left Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch), he had just faked his own death as a way to get himself and his loved ones out from under the thumb of the “Napoleon of Crime”, Jim Moriarty (Andrew Scott). Since that final frame of the last episode of season 2, many fans have concocted theories as to how Sherlock faked his own death.
Since the world’s first consulting detective will be back on television in the fall of 2013, we may finally get some real answers. Now that the titles of the episodes in season three have been released, fans have a definitive literary compass with which to explore each episode. Below are the episode names as connected to their literary counterparts.

OK, I’m a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch and really enjoy Sherlock. I’ve loved Martin Freeman ever since he popped up as an awkward porn star in Love Actually. But being dropped into #Setlock was something else.
Didn’t know North Gower Street in north-west London doubled as Sherlock’s Baker Street? Not to worry. Just follow the screams.
Barriers literally bulged under the weight of fans as they craned to get a better view ofBenedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, who were filming the final episode of series three as Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson.
As I scrabbled to talk to fans, every sudden scream sent my heart into my mouth, convincing me I’d missed some hugely important moment. “What just happened?” I’d yell at the nearest person. “Benedict walked across the road,” they’d say. He’d already done this thirty times. But yes, every time counts.
“It doesn’t finish until 10pm, that’s only another six hours,” one fan told me, settling in for the long haul.
I quickly learned not to bother asking what they’d do if they ever got to meet Benedict Cumberbatch or Martin Freeman. “Er, I’ve met him like three times,” was the third disdainful response I got. I expected this to be followed by something like, “Well, when I say met, I kind of stood near him,” but no. These were full blown, uberfan meetings. From ‘that time I followed him to his trailer’, to ‘he wouldn’t let me stroke his hair but I stroked his hand’, these are proper Cumbers/Freeman fan-to-celeb experiences.
As the crowd began aww-ing in unison when Freeman's real-life partner Amanda Abbingtonarrived and hugged Freeman, Cumberbatch and some of the production staff, I – as a #Setlock newbie – felt I was merely watching from the sidelines.
At one point, Amanda danced across the road to talk to the crowd like she was greeting a loved one at the airport. A fan next to me waved at co-creator Mark Gatiss and he winked back.
You might think this sort of hysterical activity, a mere couple of metres from the action, bothers the actors. But the fans camped out for #Setlock are total pros and certainly know when to be quiet for the camera (I got told to sshh several times by irritated fans).
Indeed, Cumberbatch spent most of his breaks over with the fans, too. He started a huge round of "happy birthday" for some lucky soul near the front, and Freeman high-fived a young girl who looked as if all of her Christmases had come at once.
Cumbers was also making the most of the cameras to spread his political messages. After initially trying to do it from across the road, he reacted to impassioned yells of "We can’t read it Benedict’, from those eager to drink in everything he may possibly have had to say, by heading back towards the barriers.
All of this was in between filming scenes in which Sherlock hailed a black cab and left Watson standing alone outside the now iconic Speedy’s Cafe.
Rumours quickly spread that filming would be starting up again at 4am in the morning. I laughed and said "Don’t tell my editor, he’ll send me back!" Their shocked faces said it all: why the hell wouldn’t you be here?
