Martin Freeman offers profanity filled bad news for ‘Sherlock’ season 5 prospects

Martin Freeman has some bad news for Sherlock fans, stating that new episodes are a very long way off.

While promoting new compilation album Jazz on the Corner which he collaborated on with Eddie Piller, Freeman told The Telegraph that returning as John Watson opposite Benedict Cumberbatch’s titular detective for the BBC isn’t likely write, even addressing questions on pending scripts.

“Not massively. Um… I think after series four [it] felt like a pause. I think we felt we’d done it for a bit now. And part of it, speaking for myself is [due to] the reception of it.”

That reception is based on the negative critic and fan reviews to season 4.

“To be absolutely honest, it [was] kind of impossible. Sherlock became the animal that it became immediately. Whereas even with The Office [the sitcom he starred in alongside Ricky Gervais] it was a slow burn. But Sherlock was frankly notably high quality from the outset. And when you start [that high] it’s pretty hard to maintain that.”

Queue the profanity: “Being in that show, it is a mini-Beatles thing,” he continued. “People’s expectations, some of it’s not fun anymore. It’s not a thing to be enjoyed, it’s a thing of: ‘You better f***ing do this, otherwise, you’re a c***.’ That’s not fun anymore.”
