If you are as big a fan as I am when it comes to the BBC hit series Sherlock then I am sure you are wondering why the series are only a few episodes long. It has been confirmed by co-creator Steven Moffat and producer Sue Vertue that even the next upcoming seasons will continue to be only but 4-3 episodes long. Fans from all over have been requesting longer seasons but from the words of Moffat, " No, it's a waste of time" when asked if Sherlock might be expanded to more episodes. Fans have to make do with just a handful of episodes — three this season — as the show's in-demand makers and cast, including Martin Freeman and newcomer (and Freeman's real-life partner) Amanda Abbington, see to other projects. That includes the "Doctor Who" series for Moffat, "The Hobbit" franchise for Freeman and a string of films for Cumberbatch. Moffat also explains another reasoning is due too the fact that the nine episodes that have been aired since 2010 are equivalent to cranking out nine movies.

What are some of your thoughts?

Do you agree with the short seasons or do you long for more Sherlock?
