I think we’re all assuming these two must be from sometime near or around filming of the Holmes/Watson reunion and subsequent fall-out, right?
Everyone looks so angsty! Freeman’s expression here is particularly amazing. That better be in an episode.

This is the second batch of behind-the-scenes photos from Sherlock filming released by the BBC, ostensibly because they have to placate a fanbase that’s been waiting for new episodes for nearly two years. Series 3 premieres on January 19 in the US, but will begin a couple weeks prior in the UK, premiering on January 1.
Series 3 will be comprised of three episodes - The Empty Hearse, written by Mark Gatiss, The Sign of Three, written by Steven Thompson and His Last Vow, written by Steven Moffat. Two teaser trailers have already been released for the new season – but true to the “teaser” moniker, they barely reveal anything storyline-wise, other than the fact that Sherlock Holmes isn’t really dead, and that John Watson’s life has changed since his best friend “died,” both of which are facts we already knew.
Guess there’s nothing to do but wait, huh? At least the day we actually get to see Series 3 for ourselves is inching ever closer? It’s the little things. Or so we keep telling ourselves at any rate.
