The Sherlock one-off special, as any Sherlock related business is, has been shrouded in mystery. But now is the time to rejoice and be merry for a new clue has been uncovered. Earlier today, PBS and BBC One announced the specials title and release date.
On January 1st, 2016 the Sherlock: The Abominable Bride will premiere in both the UK and the US. That’s right people, for the first time ever Sherlock will debut in both countries on the same day. Showrunner Steven Moffat had divulged a ghost story premise for the special this summer at the TCA press conference. The episode will be sending Sherlock and Watson back over 100 years to Victorian England.
Technically, a new trailer was also released today, though it was a trailer that was released earlier this month with just the premiere date and title added.
