Fandom Weaving!  
It's been announced who will play a new adversary on the 3rd series of Sherlock.

It's Mads Mikkelsen's brother! I...I sort of feel like there's some sort of joke or crossover fic idea in there about Hannibal and Sherlock. Give me a few minutes...

His character is Charles Augustus Magnussen which I guess is the modernized, Danish version of Charles Augustus Milverton.

oh godddd they are doing CAM then?! I'm so anxious. I love the original story because it's one of the more subversive stories - I mean if you know a lot about homosexuality in Victorian Britain then the blackmail storyline and Holmes's reaction to it speaks volumes, either that he or someone he cared about was blackmailed. Plus there's the acid being thrown around everywhere, which is an excellent mystery fiction trope that I think should be reused everywhere. haha. I have...depressingly little faith in this series left, however, given a) Steven Moffat's increasing horribleness and b) how bizarrely Irene Adler was handled. At least we can figure on John & Mary Morstan having chemistry...!

It's unclear which writer is tackling this one. I have lots of faith in Gatiss and Thompson as writers but Moffat is always the bad seed in that trio.
