Mark Gatiss reveals the title of the first episode of Sherlock Season 3


BBC Sherlock Season 3 Episode One named The Empty Hearse

The name of the first episode of Season 3 has been revealed by Mark Gatiss: "The Empty Hearse".

The name is a play on the original story The Adventure of the Empty House. In the Canon, this story follows The Final Problem. Holmes is back from his self-imposed exile after his confrontation with Professor Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls. He takes on Colonel Sebastian Moran, Moriarty's own Watson.

The ending episode of Season 2 "The Reichenbach Fall" was based on The Final Problem and it is a logical choice to start off the third season with an adaptation of The Empty House.

This announcement officially marks the beginning of Season 3 filming. I eagerly look forward to further developments and hope for an early announcement of the actual airing dates.

  1. :D The title's got me all the more excited! I have so much faith in Gatiss that this episode will be worth the wait and be spectacular. Or at the very least, better than The Blind Banker and the majority of Elementary...

    1. I am confident Gatiss will nail this one. I liked his update to The Hound of the Baskervilles.

  2. He's my favorite (and in my opinion, most consistent) writer of the three!

    1. I agree. He is my favorite as well and probably the most consistent one too.

      Of course, it helps that he makes an excellent Mycroft.

  3. Looking forward to Watson's reaction when Sherlock returns, it should be very assuming.

    1. Yes, that should be a very interesting one. Mark Gatiss himself has said, he is looking forward to writing that scene.

      I believe Watson's reaction in the BBC series will be markedly different from the one in the Canon.
