Can’t wait for the new episodes of BBC’s Sherlock? Neither can we! But there is good news, nail-biters! Thanks to a friendly fan, we have some great pictures of the whole Sherlock crew in action, currently filming the second season in wind and rain in Cardiff Bay, Cardiff, Wales.
Here, we see the consulting detective himself (Benedict Cumberbatch) in a pickle with Sherlock’s trusty and ever-reliable friend Dr. Watson (Martin Freeman). Photographer Alun Vega says that this London-y-looking part of Cardiff Bay has also been used to film Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Upstairs, Downstairs. In his photos, you’ll also see the double-decker red bus imported for set-dressing.
The second season will feature cases based upon the stories, “A Scandal in Bohemia,” “The Hound of the Baskervilles,” and “The Final Problem.” The new episodes will air in the UK beginning next month!
For more pictures of the set and rehearsals, be sure and check out alun.vega’s flickr page, for whose diligence and dry lens in the face of wind and rain all fans are extremely grateful.
