Oh honey, no.

Cumberbatch losing out

Benedict Cumberbatch once again lost out on a Best Leading Actor award for Sherlock. But he didn’t show up last night, to be fair. The prize went to Jason Watkins for The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies instead.

Sherlock did win the Audience Award though, beating the likes of Game of Thrones, GBBO and Strictly Come Dancing.

Sherlock season 4 news

Sherlock writer Seven Moffat dropped some new Sherlock news on the red carpet last night, revealing that the Victorian outfits seen on set for the forthcoming Christmas special were because “we wanted to see them do it in a proper outfit just once”, while it was also confirmed that the fourth series (all three episodes) will begin filming next spring.
