BBC Sherlock Teaser Poster Goes Back In Time

Sherlock fans get excited! The end of hiatus is approaching. BBC released a photo yesterday teasing the Sherlock Christmas Special that will be released this year. While there are no specifics yet, fans have known for some time now that the special will take place in Victorian London, hence the time period garb. The special will be a stand alone 90 minute episode, having no canonical connection to the main, modern series. Doctor Who jokes aside, things are looking good for the Sherlock fandom right now.

“We’re really proud of it, we think it’s a real cracker. But that’ll be it until series four,” Stephen Moffat told the BBC and admits that he and Mark Gatiss haven’t started working on series four yet. Last series left Sherlock fans with a major cliffhanger and much to be awaited. The long anticipated series is due to return in 2017 and while the special doesn’t have date yet, it is likely to be released sometime around Christmas. Until then, enjoy all the Victorian goodness and look out for the inevitable AU fan fiction that will come out of this.
