With the filming of Sherlock season three underway, Sherlockians have taken to showing up on set to snap photographs of Benedict Cumberbatch and company and posting them on Twitter or Tumblr under the tag ‘setlock’.
Sue Vertue, one of the producers of Sherlock, has released a statement asking fans to not take photographs and post spoilers that they may witness while at the shoots. The statement (which was sent to Sherlockology) reads:
“Hi, Sue Vertue here.
As many of you are aware, we’ll soon be embarking on our first London leg of filming for series 3. I’m also aware that there is quite a lot of speculation about where we’re shooting when. I can’t stress how much we the Producers and Benedict [Cumberbatch], Martin [Freeman]and the rest of the cast appreciate your love and dedication to our show – we’ll endeavour to live up to your expectations for Series 3.
What I am nervous about is that our London shooting schedule is punishing and will really give us very little time to interact with you. The actors really hope you understand that.
Also, and I know this is probably asking a lot, the majority of fans and indeed ourselves would REALLY appreciate it if you didn’t post pictures or spoilers or ideally our daily locations.
Thanks for your understanding. Sue x”
Unfortunately, it looks like people haven’t listened to Vertue’s request as many new pictures of the cast were released yesterday.
For anyone looking to avoid Sherlock season three spoilers make sure you stay away from the ‘setlock’ tag on any of your favourite social media sites (unless you secretly want to know everything!).
Are you one to look out for spoilers? Or are you willing to wait and be surprised? Let us know!
