'Sherlock' Makers Will Be Sticking To Shorter Seasons
Huffington Post - about 3 years
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — The makers of TV's "Sherlock" say even a lobbying effort by British Prime Minister David Cameron wouldn't persuade them to produce more episodes each season. But "Sherlock" co-creator Steven Moffat and producer Sue Vertue tweaked Cameron anyway for lack of effort. It's been more than a month, they noted, since he visited China and was asked by fans there to press for more of the popular mystery series. He praised the drama and told Chinese viewers who submitted the request to him online that he would try. But Cameron has yet to contact them, Vertue said this week. A droll Moffat added: "David Cameron, calling you on that, mate. ... All of China, they're waiting." The British-produced modern take on Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective has been a worldwide hit. It made its third season U.S. debut last Sunday on PBS, with husband-and-wife team Moffat and Vertue and star Benedict Cumberbatch on hand to promote it. Fans have to make do with just a handful ...
