Ben's thanks and the s3 teaser.

In case you didn't know everything Ben's done since his last birthday, Cumberbatchweb has got an update for you. 

And they also have a sweet response from Ben himself -- a thank-you message for all the 2013 birthday wishes and gifts he received, along with the cancer donations made in his name for Myeloma UK.

This is partly s3 spoiler zone, and partly not because the BBC loosed the teaser into the wild.  So did Mark Gatiss. 

Yesterday the teaser for Sherlock s3 came out.  Digital Spy has a recap of the teaser AND the 26-second trailer itself. 

Screen caps of the teaser exist already, like this one... although I'm betting that this screen cap off tumblr and this cap are pure fan art.  (It's just a feeling I have.)

Did you need another look at Sherlock's new nemesis, CAM?  Anglophenia provides it, of course with the official picture that Sue Vertue Tweeted on 29-July-13.  There's a Wiki synopsis of the original story of Milverton inside the link too.

Brand new setlock.

Yep.  More setlock.  Fresh off the sets!

Mild and probably safelock:  "I'm eating, again! Yeah, you, John, look!"  Ben smiling, monochrome; I love how it says "Costume" on the coat.  Ben in that same "costume" wavingBen dressed as SH but not in character... hopefully with his food at last

A pure Cumberbatched shot.

A bit more spoilery:  Ben, is that your costume today?  Ben waving, looks like he's in front of building Martin's in next...

It's definitely time for Martin now:  John framed in a pretty settingA little closer, while Martin's got his shades.  Same place, with more details -- tsk, tsk, John! 

Pssst!  If you snag pics anywhere, please attribute the source, from tumblr, Twitter, the artist, whoever.  I try to leave them linked to whoever either posted 'em or the originator, if I know.  Don't be a taker, PLEASE.  None of these are ever mine.  Thank you to every fan who shares.

A Cumberbatch, manips, etc.

So did you hear about the new name for the Cumberbatched fandom?  No?

He doesn't want us to use that other word.  Then someone got a really clever idea, a new play on words -- and his name

Here's other tumblr users replying to that post.  Fans are responding well.  Such as good night... sweet cumberdreams.  And I am...

Manips:  The picture manipulations -- aka "manips" -- often drive fans crazy.  The marvelous Silvia has made a master post of manips on her tumblr.

If you see these pics, you've been had.  I know I've fallen for a few of them myself.

Beware, s2 and s3 spoilers!  

Buzzfeed wants to tell you the 12 Traits of a True "Sherlock" Fan.

Sherlock in 221B after the tables are turned in Scandal.

And for season 3, here's a quick audio summary about Charles Augustus Milverton, the canon villain.  Really curious about what our Charles will be like.  His surname is driving me crazy.  And Twitter already has Charles Augustus Magnussen RP -- fast work, fandom!

One last spoiler, or really a semi-spoiler, for those who have been snoozing in an opium den...

Setlock alert: Filming ep3 now!

They're now filming episode 3 of s3!  The explosion of setlock is back.

But PLEASE remember not everyone wants setlock.  Please, please, PLEASE tag your setlock on tumblr, Twitter, etc.  Be courteous to your fellow fans. 

The Babes have some tips here.  If you want to block or tag on tumblr, the Final Problem can tell you how.  Tumblr also has a spoiler warning generator; how cool is that??

Spoilers vary, but they're all for series 3.

Here's a few mild setlock pics --

Ben in costume, pointing.  Dear old 221B Baker Street.

A little higher level of setlock --

John, you forgot--  and a brief vid of cast walking with Ben and having a moment of silly.  Don't blink, you'll miss it!  Poor John, having to do this bit again!

Spoiler-heavy setlock --

Actor alert!  The new guy, since Dear Jim... left us.
