BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH, MARTIN FREEMAN, SHERLOCK: ‘Sherlock’ Season 3 Episode 2 Title May Confirm Watson Romance (SCREEN RANT) by Hannah Shaw-Williams

The producers of popular BBC modern detective show Sherlock have so far been very good at keeping details about the show’s long-awaited third season under wraps. Sherlock - which stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, respectively – recently started filming again in London, Bristol and Cardiff, and the few details we’ve heard so far have almost all come from show creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss.

As he did for season 2 of the show, Gatiss revealed three “teaser” words for the next three episode: “rat, wedding, bow.” This has caused months of speculation from fans as to what season 3 might include, and the more recent announcement that the first episode of the season would be titled “The Empty Hearse” (named after Arthur Conan Doyle’s story, “The Adventure of the Empty House”) has also generated a great deal of discussion – particularly around how Holmes plans to make his return, and whether we’ll see James Moriarty’s right-hand man, Sebastian Moran, in an antagonist role.

Now it’s time to get ready for a lot more speculation. According to the Radio Times, Moffat and Gatiss have today revealed that the title of the second episode will be “The Sign of Three”, though they declined to offer any specific plot details about the episode, which will be filmed back-to-back with “The Empty Hearse” this spring. The script for the episode was written by Steven Thompson, who also penned season 2′s shocking finale, “The Reichenbach Fall”.
