Filming has wrapped on BBC One’s special one-off episode of Sherlock which is set to air later this year.
Announced last Summer, the special episode will be followed by three new adventures next year.
The series, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Watson, is one of the BBC’s biggest hits with broadcasters around the globe showing it to an ever-growing audience.
Created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, the series is produced by Hartswood Films.
Filming wraps today at The Bottle Yard Studios in Bristol following a month-long shoot in around the city and on and sets that were purpose built in the Studio’s Tank House 2 space.
Fiona Francombe, Site Director at The Bottle Yard Studios says: “Like the rest of the country, we’re massive Sherlock fans here at The Bottle Yard; it’s British television at its best.
“It’s been an honour for us to welcome Hartswood Films to the Studios for this special instalment. It’s a wonderful boost for us to be able to add an award-winning title such as Sherlock to our studio credits.”
Sherlock’s Producer Sue Vertue of Hartswood Films says: “It’s been great shooting in and around Bristol and at The Bottle Yard Studios. Everyone has been incredibly welcoming and helpful.”
Bristol Film Office’s Natalie Moore says: “It’s been a pleasure to assist the filming of this special episode.
“Every time Sherlock comes to town, their presence generates a fantastic buzz throughout the city, and we celebrate the opportunity to showcase the rich variety of iconic locations we have here in Bristol on primetime TV.
“Striking settings like Arnos Vale Cemetery, Queen Square and King Street have so much to offer productions of this type, and look spectacular on screen.”
