How can you follow up with a villain so delightfully fun and yet also so maniacal as Andrew Scott's Moriarty? Find someone scarier, apparently.
Sherlock co-creator Steven Moffat opens up about season three's villain, Charles Augustus Magnussen, played by Lars Mikkelsen: "We needed an utterly terrifying villain and Lars just scares the crap out of you the moment he shows up!"

The BBC has extended a nice holiday gift to Sherlock fans, by way of releasing a mini-episode prequel to the show's third season.
Simply titled "Many Happy Returns," the 7-minute video - penned by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat - sees Inspector Lestrade listening to a convincing theory that Sherlock Holmes is still alive and solving cases two years after his supposed death. Although Benedict Cumberbatch doesn't get much face time save for a previously recorded video played at the end of the clip, we do get to see plenty of Martin Freeman (Dr. John Watson)! Enjoy your British TV Christmas gift - hopefully it'll hold you over until the show returns to PBS on January 19th!

Now that the buzz has died down from the excitement (which was quickly followed by disappointment) of the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who, BBC fans have something new to look forward to: the season premiere of Sherlock!
Announced via public stunt that was later posted to the show's Twitter account, Sherlock will return to the BBC on New Year's Day while us American folks can catch it air on PBS January 19th. Season three - which begins with the episode titled "The Empty Hearse" - will be divided into three 90-minute episodes. Episode two and three of this season are titled "The Sign of Three" and "His Last Vow," respectively.
Check out the season three trailer for Sherlock after the jump!

Benedict Cumberbatch is a "bit cynical" about Elementary.
The British actor plays the leading character in the UK's Sherlock, and while he wishes those in the US show - which also tells the story of fictional detective Sherlock Holmes in a modern setting - the "best of luck," he did tell lead actor Jonny Lee Miller he would rather he didn't take part.
"It's very odd. I did say to Jonny, 'Well, I'd prefer you didn't do it but you've got a kid to feed, a nice house in Los Angeles and a wife to keep in good clothes.' When you get used to a certain standard of living and they waft a paycheck at you, what are you going to do? I think Jonny was like, 'Mate, I've got a f**king mountain to climb here, you've got nothing to fear.' I wish him the best of luck, but I'm a bit cynical about why they've chosen to do it and why they cast him," he said.
