WATCH: Sherlock is excited for Baby Watson in new Sherlock series 4 BTS featurette!
Sherlock is returning in just two days time and we can barely contain our excitement.
The good folk at the Beeb just love to tease us, so in the lead up to the big day they’re now littering us with the most amazing titbits – including this new BTS featurette featuring Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and Amanda Abbington.
The focus of the new featurette: John and Mary Watson’s new arrival – and Sherlock’s reaction to it!
“Sherlock feels very protective towards them as a family,” says Cumberbatch in the promo.
Stating the obvious, he adds: “He’s not a natural parent or figure of authority when it comes to a newborn, but the seeming indifference which is at times comic is all underpinned by a deep love. He’s a guardian angel, he really is.”
Speaking about how the parents-to-be are feeling about the baby, Freeman says: “They’re very excited about it. They’re in a good place. They’re a loving, married couple.”
Abbington adds: “I think the impending baby is something they’re both looking forward to a lot – including Sherlock actually, despite what he says!”
