We saw them when they were filming in London, he was so lovely he asked us if we had eaten and if we had had a nice day. About five minutes after he left his agent came over with a pizza and said that because we told Martin that we hadn’t eaten he wanted us to have his pizza, HIS LUNCH. I am still in shock omfg
I want to touch the mouths of those that touched pizza blessed by Martin Freeman
Filming on Sherlock Series Three is about to enter an important stage.
Sue Vertue, producer on the series, has sent us the following statement:
Hi, Sue Vertue here.
As many of you are aware, we’ll soon be embarking on our first London leg of filming for series 3. I’m also aware that there is quite a lot of speculation about where we’re shooting when. I can’t stress how much we the Producers and Benedict, Martin and the rest of the cast appreciate your love and dedication to our show - we’ll endeavour to live up to your expectations for Series 3.
What I am nervous about is that our London shooting schedule is punishing and will really give us very little time to interact with you. The actors really hope you understand that.
Also, and I know this is probably asking a lot, the majority of fans and indeed ourselves would REALLY appreciate it if you didn’t post pictures or spoilers or ideally our daily locations.
Thanks for your understanding. Sue x
Edit: Nope. Not going to leave with an angry message.
But how about we all just agree the #setlock tag needs to be humanely euthanized.
Come on guys, we can use our time for so many other awesome things! Lets not be THAT fandom with leaky spoilers and obnoxious fan paparazzi at every location?
“Martin essentially is a hobbit, and by that I mean he’s a wonderful British character who was reluctant to leave the Shire and uproot his idyllic home life. (He doesn’t, to the best of my knowledge, have hairy feet.) He was also reluctant to let down his Sherlock co-star, Benedict Cumberbatch, and the BBC, by deserting their second series, which clashed with our dates. He’s an honourable man and a wonderful actor. Once he’d read, the filmmakers knew they’d found their Bilbo. When the date clash occurred, we went into overdrive to tape alternatives to present to Peter [Jackson] but the realisation grew that Peter, Fran [Walsh] and Philippa [Boyens] would never settle on anyone else in that role and so the plan was hatched to accommodate his Sherlock dates, by filming other cast members and editing the movies during his absences.”
