Benedict Cumberbatch confirms he has no plans to quit Sherlock
The lead actor will stick with the role as long as his character is 'developing'
The actor says he will continue in the titular role until his character begins to stagnate. “I’ll keep doing it as long as [Sherlock] grows, as long as I feel he’s developing and there’s stuff we’re all being challenged by and that it’s being loyal to the original stories as well,” he told USA Today.
“I won’t say it’s changed my life because I had a huge break at the same time as this role first came to fruition,” the 37-year-old continued. “It was sort of a perfect storm of all mediums coming together at the same time – television, film and theatre, even some radio.”
Hype has built-up around the detective duo’s supposed ‘bromance’ since the first episode aired in 2010, but when Watson’s stag party was filmed in “The Sign of Three”, fans missed out on some drunken footage.
“Doing the drunk stuff was lovely but I regret there was one bit of that drunk stuff that was missing,” Freeman said. “There was the gay club scene. Why didn’t that get in? We got mullered in a gay club and all these topless guys were going by.”
Co-creator and writer Steven Moffat teased a possible “four or five year” wait until the next series, with Cumberbatch joking that he could answer “Errrr, errrr, errr” for at least two years when asked about what might happened next.
