Sherlock Star Responds to Fan Criticism Over Controversial Statement

Sherlock actor Martin Freeman got himself into a bit of a frenzy a few months ago when he said that Sherlock is “not fun anymore” due to the pressure from fans. Unsurprisingly, fans didn’t take his comments too well. Now, Freeman is taking his words back. 


In an interview with The Telegraph last March, Freeman spoke about the pressure to deliver what fans wanted. 


“People’s expectations, some of it is not fun any more. It’s not a thing to be enjoyed, it’s a thing of, ‘You better f**king do this, otherwise you’re a c**t’. That’s not fun anymore,” he said.





Now, Freeman is changing the script. In an interview with The Daily Beast, Freeman assured fans that he is grateful for the fanfare he has received. However, he points out, that fanfare can come with strings attatched. 


“If you’re in something that has a lot of fans, that’s better than being in something that has no fans. My point with Sherlock was that those expectations can be heavy,” Freeman said. “There’s a certain aspect that some fans are going to run with the ball and make their own thing out of your show—which is completely fair enough, as long as we all acknowledge that that is what is happening.”





While its understandable and predictable that audiences will want the show to go in a particular direction, audiences have to accept that they won’t always get their wish, says Freeman.


“When people insist that Sherlock is supposed to be this show, when we decide what show it is, it’s like, ‘No, this is actually the show we’re making, and that we’ve always made. I know you want to see this happen, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to have to happen.’ I want all kinds of things, but they’re not going to happen in life. So that’s what gets, frankly, wearing,” Freeman said.


Nevertheless, Freeman wants to assure fans that his love and appreciation of Sherlock along with his character John Watson hasn’t wavered.


“But the show itself, I’m well aware of its importance in my life, both professionally and personally, because I love the show. I’m a fan of the show. Unfortunately, that’s the joy of being quoted out of context, and joy of newspapers needing a headline, even though the headline is not something I ever said at any point in the interview.”


So never fear Sherlock fans, Dr. Watson is still on board!

10 ‘Sherlock’ Memes That Will Get You Itching for That Fifth Season!

I will freely admit it: I love Benedict Cumberbatch. I am one of those people who finds him to be mega dreamy, and would love for him to come sweep me off my feet in some sort of romantic gesture. I’ve also been the butt of many jokes because of my fondness for the Sherlock actor; I’ve been sent a fair number of memes poking fun at his rather peculiar appearance. And I can admit it. He’s certainly got some interesting features, but I still think he’s the bee’s knees. 


I recently received one of these memes, and it got me thinking about sharing some of my favorite memes inspired by the BBC television show based around Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock. So here are ten memes for anyone who considers him or herself to be the biggest Sherlock fan on the block. Fair warning though, there might be a spoiler or two below. But honestly, it seems to take forever and a day to put out a new season of the show so I’m sure any fans out there will not have to worry about spoilers!
