Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss today revealed the three "tease" words for Series three of Sherlock at the Edinburgh International Television Festival.

Moffat tweeted: "So. The three tease words for the next run of Sherlock ... Rat. Wedding. Bow.". Gatiss had early jokingly posted false teaser words to his Twitter account: "Off to Edinburgh for #Sherlock event at the TV festival. I'm revealing the 'three words' for S3 early. Pipe. Slippers. Bed. There you go."

The three words for series two were "Woman. Hound. Fall". The "Woman" referred to the character of Irene Adler. "Hound" was The Hounds of Baskerville and the "Fall" was The Reichenbach Fall.

The YouTube channel for the festival released a video of highlights from the Sherlock event.
