Some very lucky Sherlock fans were on hand to capture all the behind the scenes action as Benedict Cumberbatch and co headed out on location in Bristol to shoot some new scenes for the upcoming third season of the popular BBC drama.

They had their cameras in tow as they watched Cumberbatch and newcomer Amanda Abbington film a rather dramatic bonfire scene on Bristol's Portland Square. Some of them were even lucky enough to land themselves roles as extras on the shoot too. Sweet!

Local blog Bristol Culture was on the scene, and hinted that some fireworks and a motorbike would also be involved later in the night, but thankfully didn't spoil things any further. They even uploaded their own video of the night's proceedings for fans further afield to enjoy.

We can't wait to find out what Sherlock's been up to when he returns to our screens later this year.
