Petition: Please show the Sherlock Christmas Special in Cinemas worldwide


When the first Doctor Who episode starring the new Doctor (Peter Capaldi) was shown in cinemas worldwide last year, I enjoyed seeing it on the big screen very much.
As I'm a huge BBC Sherlock fan I wondered if we might be in for the same treat with either the upcoming Christmas Special or the first episode of Season 4. I'm wondering if others would also like to see Sherlock hit the big screen and if we maybe should let the BBC know.
Also I think it might be a possibility for many to avoid spoilers if we all see the episode at the same time.

Therefore I decided to start this petition and would be very happy if you could sign!

Kind regards

This Week's Cover: Stephen Colbert goes to Middle-earth and back again


Does Stephen Colbert know the world of J.R.R. Tolkien?

Was Faramir the first Prince of Ithilien? Are the Dúnedain descended from the Númenóreans? Does Beorn the bear defecate in the woods?

Seriously, does he? We don’t know the answers to any of these, but we’re willing to wager all the gold in Erebor that Stephen Colbert does. He’s that big of a fan. Which is why we asked him to write this week’s cover story for the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, the final film in Peter Jackson’s second Tolkien trilogy. It hits theaters next Friday.


Image Credit: RUVEN AFANADOR for EW

Colbert is probably best known for his iconic, indelible role of “Lake-town spy” in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. (Oh, and we guess also for The Colbert Report, which airs its final episode on Dec. 18, and for his new job as the upcoming host of The Late Show.) But for our cover, he got to enact a childhood fantasy and dress up as three of the films’—ahem—more prominent characters: Gandalf, Legolas, and, of course, Bilbo Baggins. “Just me and a few of my friends got together to play dress-
up,” Colbert writes in EW. “Lucky for me, my ‘friends’ are the wardrobe department for The Hobbit. The original costumes and wigs were flown in from New Zealand just for me. They didn’t even fly the costumes out of New Zealand for the actors! They had to wear them there!”


Image Credit: RUVEN AFANADOR for EW

In a hilarious essay, Colbert discusses his relationship with the books, how he hosted The Hobbit panel at this year’s Comic-Con, and his enduring obsession with everything Middle-earth. “Tolkien’s work has been a lifelong haven for me—truly a light in dark places when all other lights went out,” he writes. “For an awkward teenager, Middle-earth was a world I could escape to. Peter Jackson’s Middle-earth also gave me a world to escape to, but by the time his films came out, I was rich and famous and didn’t really want to escape my life anymore. Still, great movies.”

This week’s issue also includes a Q&A between Colbert and Peter Jackson, as well as features on Doctor Who and Inherent Vice director Paul Thomas Anderson, so be sure to pick up one (or two or three) of the collector’s covers.

Bond 24 villain revealed: Sherlock star Andrew Scott to take on Daniel Craig's 007 in new film

The actor, who plays Moriarty in Sherlock, has been hand-picked for the role in the new James Bond movie

Sherlock villain will go up against Bond, James Bond, in the new film

Sherlock star Andrew Scott, who plays the TV detective’s nemesis Moriarty, is set to appear in the new James Bond movie as a villain.

The Irish actor, 38, who found fame in the hit BBC show four years ago, will play another baddie in the highly anticipated 007 flick - which has the working title of Bond 24.

Dubliner Andrew is set to appear alongside returning cast members Daniel Craig, who plays the secret agent, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear and Naomie Harris along with Léa Seydoux, Dave Bautista and Christoph Waltz who are reported to be joining the cast.

The movie, directed by Sam Mendes, is set to be released in October 2015, with the cast and title officially announced tomorrow.


Andrew is hoping to follow in the footsteps of his Sherlock co-star Benedict Cumberbatch and break Hollywood.

An insider told the Mirror: “Andrew was hand-picked for a role in the new Bond movie after film bosses loved his star turn in Sherlock.

“Casting directors thought he was perfect to play a baddie and they wanted to use his existing Sherlock profile - and amp it up to the next level.

“Andrew is hoping the move will see him leap from TV to the big screen, where he can eventually divide his time between London and LA. He knows this is his big break.”

Andrew has previously admitted that BAFTA award-winning show Sherlock had changed his life and opened many doors in the acting world.



He said: “Sherlock has changed all our careers, and I’m really pleased about that. It gives you the benefit of the doubt because executives like to see recognisable faces.

“It was overwhelming to be on a TV show that is quite so popular. That took me totally by surprise. People had an instant affection for it from the first episode.

"The reaction was extraordinary. People still come up to me in the street all the time, wanting to talk about it.”

But he admitted earlier this year that he did not want to be typecast as a baddie, while promoting Brit comedy The Stag.

He said: “I was looking forward to playing something less dark. I’ve done a lot of comedy in the theatre, but in recent years I’ve done projects that are a little bit more serious in nature.”

How Benedict Cumberbatch Really Feels About His Female Fans

Benedict cumberbatch on his female fans, fiancee sophie hunter

Justin Bieber has Beliebers. Ed Sheeran has Sheerios. And Benedict Cumberbatch, the British actor currently taking Hollywood by storm, has his own army of rabid female fans.

Their nickname for themselves? Cumberbitches.

"It's funny and I'm flattered," Cumberbatch recently told PEOPLE during a photo shoot at the storied Algonquin Hotel in New York City. "But on a serious note, come on, give yourself more power as women," he added. "Don't just call yourself bitches!"

The 38-year-old actor, currently starring in The Imitation Game, said he knows that the fans are just being cheeky, but he still hopes the moniker doesn't totally stick.

"I know it was a joke, and more of an empowering thing. The majority of [the fans] are smart and savvy and just having fun, but it's getting out there," he said. "It sounds a bit [rude]."

So what does he suggest for a replacement term?

"Cumbersomes? Cumbercollective? Cumberfans?" he said. "There's lots of stuff!"

Cumberbatch, who is already garnering Oscar buzz for portraying the mathematician genius Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, recently broke those fans' hearts by getting engaged to his girlfriend, theater director and actress Sophie Hunter.

So how does she handle his popularity with the female masses?

"She's just so in command of it," he explained. "It could be a difficult thing, but she's just really cool. It's really impressive."

As for what's next for the suddenly in-demand star, "we're filming a Christmas Sherlock special that's airing in January, and then I have to finish filming Richard III," he said, adding that he'll take a little break to spend the holidays with his family.

"I like a traditional Christmas, the whole nine yards," he said. "It's all about just shutting down and shutting off for a bit. Going off the grid."

He said he may also try to squeeze in a short holiday before returning to his hectic filming schedule – but he won't divulge where.

"I have my favorite spots, but I can't tell you where they are in case someone reading this pops up and ruins it!" he said, laughing. "I do value my privacy, and so any place that has an element of that is great. But I'm partial to the Mediterranean."

The Sherlock special reveal - what does it mean?

The sherlock special reveal - what does it mean?

BBC1's Sherlock and John! But dressed like they're in Victorian times! A new Sherlock script! The first in literally years! And the return of the #221back hashtag! All shared on Twitter by the show's producer Sue Vertue! Sherlock fans haven't been this excited since... well, that last Sherlock reveal...

But what does it all mean? Here are some ideas, and before you start judging, remember that when the special was first announced, Steven Moffat told us "we're reasonably confident that the very next thing to happen to Sherlock and John, is the very last thing you'd expect...” #notkidding

Is this the Blue Carbuncle?

Ever since there's been talk of a Sherlock Christmas special (pretty much since the series began) there's been talk of The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle. Not only is it the only of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original Sherlock Holmes stories set at Christmas, it's also an incredibly Christmassy Christmas tale, and one that Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss adores.

The problem with dramatising The Blue Carbuncle is that much of its intense Christmassiness (did I mention that?) comes from the fact that it's set in the most Christmassy place in space and time* – Victorian London. Modern Sherlock could manage a snowy capital of course, but what about that Christmas goose that's inherent to the plot? It's all turkey and Quorn these days. What about gangs of "roughs" being chased off by Bobbies on the beat? What about tallow drips on felt hats? Wagers of a gold sovereign made with uppity market traders? What about the open fire in those cosy Victorian rooms? The Blue Carbuncle needs all of this.

So when we see Sherlock and John dressed like the original Holmes and Watson, it feels like we're one step closer to fulfilling that Christmas dream...

Is it a Sherlock-Doctor Who crossover?

...then again, how exactly would Sherlock and John find themselves in Victorian London? Two words: The Doctor. Or one, if you prefer conciseness: Tardis*. #221back in time, anyone? Yes, surely this has to be a signal that this time next year we'll be awaiting the much debated Sherlock-Doctor Who crossover that Steven Moffat has said he'd be up for. Doesn't it...?


Are Sherlock and John cosplayers?

If, however, Moffat and Gatiss decide for some crazy reason to keep time travel out of Sherlock for now, perhaps Sherlock and John are about to start hanging out with exactly the sort of geeks who read (and write) articles this – perhaps they're about to go under cover at a convention...

What about Moriarty?

Don't forget (as if) that the Sherlock special is when we'll finally discover once and for all what that surprise last-minute appearance by Sherlock's arch-nemesis actually means. Yeah, you missed him, but is Moriarty really back from the dead? Mark Gatiss tells me that, one way or another, this episode will solve that mystery "completely". So will we get to see Andrew Scott wearing a frock coat and a top hat and carrying a cane? We can only hope... 

When does the special start filming?

Gaps in the schedules of Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss will finally line-up – like some portentous celestial convergence – in January (and a bit of February). Cue more #Setlock.

When will we get to see the special?

Martin Freeman told us a while back that he expects it to be a Christmas special. Mark Gatiss tells us that it could be, but that it's up to the schedulers. But, seriously, when else would they show a festive Sherlock special but Christmas? Unfortunately, that means Christmas 2015...

Oops, We Inspired a Benedict Cumberbatch Meme

They don't call him "the internet's boyfriend" for nothing. After we published our profile of the very charming Benedict Cumberbatch this morning, the Cumbercollective was quick to respond with its own take ... and boy, were they creative. Do you like your Benedict with a side a Sherlock humor? Or do you prefer him in animated GIF form? Whichever variety of Cumberbabe you are, Tumblr has got you covered. Scroll down for the best meme responses to Jada Yuan's profile featuring photography by Art Streiber.
