". . . But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present, just as I can point to something over there only because I am here. But nothing is inherently over there or here. In that sense, the past has no content. The past -- or more accurately, pastness -- is a position. Thus, in no way can we identify the past as past." p. 15

". . . But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands." p. 153

BBC 1 *Sherlock* Series / Season 3

Alas.  Alack.

Due to the schedules of their other projects Cumberbatch and Freeman haven't been free until yesterday, March 11, when they conducted a first read-through of the first script.

We will not be seeing it here in the US until 2014, as essentially three films must be made, and the series won't air on BBC 1 until the end of 2013.

Poor Watson, grieving for two whole years!
