It’s familiar terrain for the former showrunner and writer of the U.K.’s longest-running time traveling sci-fi show, Doctor Who.

Back when Sherlock first began in 2010, Martin Freeman most famous for playing Tim on the British Office and Benedict Cumberbatch was barely known outside the U.K. at all.

You know, the one that allows him to work tirelessly without crashing his car into a ditch or walking into closed doors.

Anyway, the real news here is not that Cumberbatch is secretly one of those kids from Beggars in Spain, but that production has officially begun on more episodes of Sherlock, which is good news for people who like nice things.
