Martin Freeman says that Sherlock may be getting a Christmas special next year. The actor, who plays John Watson on the BBC show, was asked by the Telegraph about when the next installment may come and said that while it's difficult to get the cast and crew together for enough time for a fourth series, a one-off may get made.
Freeman said: "If that's going to be [for] a special - I'm speaking off-message here; if this was New Labour I'd get fired - I think that might be for next Christmas. A Christmas special - that's what I understand."
As to what may happen in the episode, he said, "While we play fast and loose with the original stories, we generally follow the trajectory of what Conan Doyle did. So he gets married, and then Mary dies - so at some point presumably she'll die."
