BBC has already confirmed that Doctor Watson and his wife Mary will become parents. This plot will be very thrilling for fans. But they are very much worried about Mary. Because in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle?s novel, Mary will die after giving birth to her baby. Show creators Steven Moffat and Gatiss have also teased that there will a tragedy in the upcoming season. ?By having that scene right at the end, where we go back to Victorian London ?? Victorian Baker Street ? and Sherlock explicitly says, ?It?s an imagined version of what I think the future might be,? we have really opened a ridiculous window that the entire series of Sherlock might be the drug-induced ravings of the Victorian Sherlock Holmes. Which means we can do absolutely anything,? Gatiss said.
On social media, fans are requesting the showrunners not to eliminate the character Moriarty. They have seen him in the special episode which was aired a couple of months ago.
The sad news is that Season 4 will be the last season of the Sherlock series. ?Ghosts of the past are rising in the lives of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson bringing adventure, romance and terror in their wake. This is the story we?ve been telling from the beginning. A story about to reach its climax,? Gatiss and Moffat revealed.
