BBC TV’s Sherlock Re-imagining Gets Japanese Manga
The October issue of Kadokawa’s Young Ace magazine is announcing on Tuesday that a manga adaptation of BBC’sSherlock television series will debut in the next issue on October 4. The artist “Jay.” is launching the manga with an adaptation of “A Study in Pink,” the show’s first episode which was scripted byDoctor Who writers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss.
The BBC series takes Arthur Conan Doyle’s brilliant yet idiosyncratic detective and re-imagines him in modern-day London. Benedict Cumberbatch (Atonement, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, 2013Star Trek sequel) and Martin Freeman (The Office, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, The Hobbit) star as Sherlock and his friend Dr. Watson, respectively. There have been two seasons of three 90-minute episodes, with plans for a third season.
The iconic consulting detective has inspired several earlier manga and anime, including a youthful version in Sherlock Holmes whispers to the shadow and a canine reincarnation co-directed by Hayao Miyazaki in Sherlock Hound. Cumberbatch himself discussed all the boys-love dōjinshi manga and fan fiction that his character’s relationship with Watson has inspired.

Series 3 of Sherlock to film in early 2013. Beryl Vertue mentioned it at today’s Nations and Regions Media conference
The implication of that is we are unlikely to see series 3 until Autumn 2013. The BBC tend to keep its best material for Autumn/winter months.
I was hoping for some slack in late 2012 but with Hobbit pr work I suppose that was naive. More importantly I hope that means Benedict has a big film project lined up for Autumn 2012.
Star Trek Casting News of the Day: It seems Benedict Cumberbatch won’t be content until he’s in every awesome thing ever.
The impossibly British thespian, who is already both Sherlock Holmes and Smaug The Dragon, has just been cast as the main villain in the upcoming sequel to J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot.
Prior to the War Horse star, both Edgar Ramirez and Jordi Molla auditioned for the part. The casting of Cumberbatch presumably puts to rest the rumor that Star Trek 2’s principal antagonist would be Khan Noonien Singh.
SO PROUD OF OUR BABY
