Benedict Cumberbatch: 'Sherlock Will Return'
Actor confirms himself and co-star Martin Freeman want to continue BBC series...
It's the news that Sherlock fans have been longing to hear - Sherlock executive producerSherlock] is. He's a very iconic figure. It's kind of extraordinary and a little bit unnerving, and I do feel that has to be acknowledged.
"I know that feeds the thing itself but I'm a human being; as much as I'm capable of, I'm going to acknowledge the gratitude, the fact that they are so supportive, loyal and by and large intelligent and some of them normal and committed to something I really love doing and a character I love playing. It means a hell of a lot to me."
The third series of Sherlock has just debuted in the US with the show's best ratings to date. It was a similar success in the UK where the final episode was watched by a record audience of almost nine million viewers.
The mystery from the end of series two was recently resolved in the new series.
