If you are a fan of BBC/Masterpiece Mystery’s “Sherlock” and want to remain unspoiled for the upcoming second season, PLEASE LEAVE THIS ARTICLE as there is sensitive spoiler material below.
For those who remained, here’s the information. According to the Daily Mail, some set pictures from “Sherlock” show Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes on a stretcher, bloodied and seemingly unconscious.
The pictures are from the first episode “A Scandal in Belgravia,” which is a play on the story “A Scandal in Bohemia” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In the story, Sherlock and John Watson (played by Martin Freeman in the show) help the King of Bohemia track down a scandalous photograph from Irene Adler, and American singer and actress as well as the king’s former love interest.
In “Belgravia,” however, one scene has Sherlock falling from the top of a building, which leads to him being carried out on the stretcher. In the episode, he has either accidentally fallen off, or Moriarty, played by Andrew Scott, has pushed him off in an attempt to kill him.
What do you think about the set pictures? Since it’s the first episode, I’m sure he’s not dead, but do you think the set pictures show that “Belgravia” also has some of the story “The Final Problem” thrown in for good measure? Sound off below.
