Martin Freeman on fourth series of Sherlock: 'I really love the show'

By
Sherlock star Martin Freeman has revealed that he has no objections to doing a fourth series of the hit BBC show.

The Hobbit star, who is currently filming for the third series of the crime drama with co-star Benedict Cumberbatch, said that he is "very loyal" to the programme.

Freeman told Empire: "I believe in doing things for as long as people love them, and all I can say is that I really love the show.

"I feel very loyal to it and I like doing it... for as long as they want to do it and as long as we all want to do it."

Freeman confirmed that he initially turned down the role of Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit due to scheduling issues with Sherlock, and claimed that the reaction to the detective drama has been "unlike any I'd had [in] any other job".

"I've got some great reactions to things I'm very proud of, but I don't think any surpass Sherlock in terms of critical acclaim and number of people watching - and just a general feeling that you're in a mini Beatlemania," he explained.

Freeman's co-star Cumberbatch recently said that Sherlock would be back for a fourth series, although the BBC is yet to officially confirm this.
