Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed that Sherlock series 3 will see the hero "in real peril" as "a master villain brings him to his knees."

The actor explains: "We know from the end of series two he staged his death, he was out of the game but calculating every move and therefore in charge.

"[But] What’s exciting about this series is we see Sherlock in real peril.

"In the third [episode] they are challenged by a situation and a master villain who brings him to his knees."

He adds: "He really does lose his authority on the situation and it’s really exciting to see a hero in that much jeopardy."

So, who is this new villain? Played by Borgen and The Killing star Lars Mikkelsen, Charles Augustus Magnussen "is a businessman," says Cumberbatch.
