Benedict Cumberbatch and Sherlock stars reveal gay club scene was cut from “The Sign of Three”
The Independent UK is reporting that a gay club scene involving the pair was cut from the last series.
“Doing the drunk stuff was lovely but I regret there was one bit of that drunk stuff that was missing,” Martin Freeman who plays Watson teased. “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.”
The scene was cut from the pub crawl. Moffat said the scene drug on and on.
Cumberbatch said, “Errrr, errrr, errr….I can do that for two years,”
“I can’t wait for four or five years until we make the next episode,” added Moffat.
That’s just wrong!
Sherlock might not return to the BBC until 2016
“If people have to wait two years, they’ll have to wait two years,” the detective drama’s co-creator and producer told gaming website IGN.
When asked about Sherlock ‘s future, Moffat insisted he had “no idea”. “We’ll do what we can, but with no sacrifice in quality – that’s the thing,” he said. “It’s not the kind of show that turns up all the time, it’s just not. But the good news is, that probably means it will turn up sporadically for a very, very long while.”
Lead actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are in high demand following Sherlock‘s success, meaning shooting for new episodes will depend on their work schedules.
Moffat is a busy man too. He has just started with new Time Lord Peter Capaldi on the next series of sci-fi drama Doctor Who .
