'Sherlock' fans go meme-crazy for season 3

MANILA, Philippines – Pop culture's favorite British detective is back. Almost. 

It's been a long wait for fans of "Sherlock," the BBC series starring Benedict Cumberbatch as ultra-logical detective Sherlock Holmes, and Martin Freeman as his antsy assistant John Watson.

The second season ended with the show's hero jumping off a building to his death, only to emerge alive much later. And while season 3 of the TV series was still a long ways away, fans took the show into their own hands online.

With only 9 hours' worth of footage from the two aired seasons with three episodes each, they got pretty creative. And by creative, we mean borderline crazy. (Editor's note: We earlier said that the two seasons had 6 hours' worth of footage instead of 9. Apologies for the error.)

This brings us to the present day. Finally, the BBC has kindly bestowed upon its crazed fans a much awaited–and much delayed–premier date.

Some may expect the meme-making to slow down, but if history is anything to go by, the crazy might just be getting started. Thus, keep calm and scroll on: there are still plenty of Sherlockians who wait restlessly for their fallen hero to return. Rappler.com
