BBC is known for two things: quality programming and erratic schedules. And now the inconsistency bug has struck the popular detective show, Sherlock. According to Entertainment Weekly, the production of the third season has been moved from January to March 2013 to accommodate the increasingly busy schedules of stars Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberpatch.

This delay in production will obviously lead to a delay in the airing of the episodes. Sources have told the site that while BBC will likely air the third season in late 2013, many fans in the States might have to wait until either late 2013 or early 2014 to see it on PBS, according to a spokesperson. We'll update you as soon as anything official is announced.
