'The Office' Anniversary & 'Sherlock' Pics

(If you don't like spoilers of any kind for Sherlock, don't scroll down to the pics. They're pics of filming but might be weird with that season 1 cliffhanger still looming over us fans...)

The original, British version of the Office premiered 10 years ago today.

I've only seen a handful of episodes but Martin Freeman is adorable (in a completely different way than he is as John Watson, yet that 'a' word comes to mind) and perfect in the role of the mousy, shy, practical joker.

He was endearing in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy as Arthur Dent. (As if Martin Freeman wasn't adorable enough, they put him in pajamas...)

I was lucky enough to get to see Hitchhiker at the El Capitan in Hollywood. Before the show, the music entertained us as we found our seats. The live music played by an orchestra!

After the show, we got to go downstairs for the exhibit in which props from the movie were on display. (Unfortunately, no Martin Freeman was waiting behind glass. *sad face*)

It was so cool!

Of course, Martin Freeman is amazing as the latest incarnation of John Watson in BBC's Sherlock - which is filming as we speak.

And, speaking of adorable, I mean Sherlock, here are some pics from shooting (literally) courtesy of the BBC America Blog and Flickr. They aren't the highest quality but they are cool. They also don't show Martin Freeman much.

It looks like they're holding hands! At first, I thought Watson is holding Sherlock back from shooting someone. Then I guessed Martin Freeman was attracting Benedict Cumberbatch's attention - but since it's across three pics, it seems unlikely.

My theory (of the holding hands) is that Sherlock and Watson are handcuffed but since this is rehearsal, they're not using handcuffs so Martin Freeman is simply holding onto Benedict Cumberbatch's sleeve.

What story can you make up?

I know it, Bonnie - I can't wait either. I wish there was more than 3 eps a season! Talk about a tease...It's like making a big meal but eating it in less time than it took to prepare. So frustrating!
