Although the BBC have yet to officially confirm series 4 of Sherlock, Amanda Abbington has confirmed that she will be returning as Mary Watson.
In an interesting interview with Vulture Martin’s Freeman’s real life partner said “I am coming back, but I don’t know in what capacity. We don’t know story lines yet. Well, we do know some things but aren’t allowed to say. What we do know is amazing.”
The finale of the third series left viewers stunned as it was revealed that Watson’s new bride was not who she seemed. In the same interview Abbington was asked if the pair would make good parents “On the one hand, they’d probably be reckless because they’re both quite psychopathic. But I think an assassin and an army doctor who loves trouble, I mean, that kid has got nothing to worry about. Screwed up mentally, of course, but if there’s any bullying on the playground, we’re covered.
Writers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss recently announced they have stories planned to cover both a forth and fifth series but there has been no official confirmation of this through the BBC.
