By
Sherlock series three will go into production later than expected, it has been reported.

Work on new episodes of the detective drama was due to begin in January, but the shoot will now start in March, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Sources said the change was necessary to accommodate the busy schedules of Benedict Cumberbatch, who is in Star Trek 2, and Martin Freeman, who has been filming The Hobbit.

Sherlock's upcoming season will therefore premiere in late 2013, rather than in August, as had previously been stated. The BBC is yet to officially announce the show's return date.

A spokesperson for US broadcaster PBS said Sherlock is likely to air in the States in either late 2013 or early 2014.

It has been rumoured that the third series of Sherlock will be its last.
