Sherlock rockets to nearly 13m
Article from Broadcast:
The New Year’s Day instalment of Sherlock tracked down a final rating of nearly 13m after it was watched by the UK’s biggest ever catch-up audience.
There have been a further 2.8m requests to watch the drama in its first seven days on iPlayer, meaning its true audience stands at around 15.5m.
The consolidated rating was the Hartswood Films drama’s best-ever performance, outstripping its previous high of 10.7m (33.1%) for the second series debut on 1 January 2012.
Sherlock’s 3.5m viewing boost is the biggest time-shifted audience on record, according to the BBC. It beat the Downton Abbey 2012 Christmas special, where 3.2m watched the ITV drama through their catch-up devices.
The sleuth’s third series debut also made it the BBC’s highest-rated drama outside of Doctor Who since 2002.
The news comes after Sherlock’s co-creator Steven Moffat confirmed at a Bafta screening on Wednesday that the drama will return for a fourth run.
Star Benedict Cumberbatch has previously stated there will be another series, but there is less certainty about a fifth outing.
Details of the Hartswood Films / Beryl Vertue ‘in conversation’ at the BFI on Tuesday 26 February 2013. Beryl will be talking to Paul Jackson about her career, with Sherlock of course featuring heavily.
Tickets cost £5 and go on sale to Champions on 7 Jan, Members 8 Jan and general public on 15 Jan.

Sherlock is nominated in the best drama series and Benedict Cumberbatch is nominated in the best actor category at tonight’s TV Choice awards.
Jo Brand will be announcing the winners at a ceremony at the Dorchester later this evening.
Sherlock goes head to head with Downton Abbey, Shameless and Skins. Benedict is up against Colin Morgan, Matt Smith and Martin Clunes.
Lots of luck to Hartswood and Benedict!
