Sherlock will return for a fourth series "as quickly" as possible, co-creator Steven Moffat has insisted.
A fourth and fifth series of the hit detective show have been planned, Moffat revealed last night (January 8) at a BAFTA screening of third series finale 'His Last Vow'.

Series producer Sue Vertue added: "We're working on it - it's dates."
