Sherlock's third series begins filming today, and Mark Gatiss has just revealed the name of the first episode...
The Empty Hearse.That's the cheeky title Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat have given episode
one of Sherlock's third series. There's an obvious reference there to the not-really-dead trick Holmes pulled in the series two finale, and Conan Doyle readers will recognise the characteristic pun on his post-Reichenbach story, The Empty House.
Spooks and Black Books director Jeremy Lovering has been confirmed as replacing Paul McGuigan for the series and helming two of the forthcoming three episodes (including this one), with Colm McCarthy going behind the camera for the remaining instalment. Filming begins today, for an expected winter 2013 air date.
