He said: “People ask if it’s good to challenge the audience. Of course it f***ing is. Why would you not want to challenge your audience? I did a phone-in after the Christmas special a few years ago and someone said (‘Sherlock’) was too complicated for people to follow. I said, ‘Oh, go and pour some warm paste into your mouth’.”

Gatiss added: “If you don’t want to be challenged, don’t watch it. It’s a complex and entertaining programme. Go and read a children’s book with hard pages if you don’t want to be challenged. We’re making the show we want to make. We don’t make it a certain way because fans are pressuring us.” (IANS)

The Emmy-winning TV series “Sherlock” will be back on the Indian small screen with season four next year. It will air from January 7, 2017, on AXN.

Los Angeles, Nov 14, 2016: Actress Rachel McAdams liked to meditate on the set of “Doctor Strange” by practicing medical stitches.

“My mum was a nursee and I just don’t posess that gene so I was always fascinated. It’s a job that takes so much guts. I shadowed a really great female neurosurgeon in Toronto and one in London, who taught me how to do stitches. It was very meditative, like knitting,” McAdams, who plays Christine Palmer — a doctor — in the film, told LOOK magazine.

She added: “When I was bored on set, I would just pull out my… stitching wire. I don’t even know what it’s called, some doctor I am. But I would practise and it was great to jump into another world.”

One of the actress’ favourite things about her career is getting a chance to take a glimpse at others’ lives and careers in her research for her characters, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“I think it’s the thing I love most about my job, that you get to live so many lives in one lifetime. I have a bit of ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) when it comes to things, so variety is the spice of life for me,” she said.

But the actress also enjoyed the “weird” experience of working with so much special effects and computer generated imagery.

“When I read one of the scenes, I was simultaneously daunted and excited because it was like nothing I’d ever seen before. It was fresh and different and weird. It was like choreographing a dance. And Benedict was actually there for a lot of it, up on wires, flying around the room for hours on end,” she said. (IANS)
