The creators of BBC1 hit Sherlock have given fans a teaser about the detective show’s third series, due to begin filming next January, revealing the three words “rat, wedding, bow”.

Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, and Sherlock producer Sue Vertue, revealed the cryptic clues at a masterclass session on the popular and critically acclaimed BBC1 drama at the MediaGuardian Edinburgh International Television Festival on Friday afternoon.

“It is an exercise in love. We wouldn’t have minded if nobody had watched it, if we’d been allowed to carry on making them for each other.”

Instead, however, more than 8 million viewers tuned in to the show – taking its team by surprise. “We thought it would be an audience of 4 million and an obscure award from a Polish festival. We thought it would be about that level,” said Moffat. …
