Happy New Year for Sherlock fans!
Huzzah! PBS has posted a new trailer for Sherlock: The Abominable Bride, the special episode of BBC's Sherlock series set in Victorian London (unlike the rest of the series, which is set in the present day, even though Arthur Conan Doyle's stories about Sherlock Holmes were set in Victorian London -- so meta).
The episode will air on Masterpiece at 9 p.m. on Jan. 1, with an encore on Jan. 10. It will also be shown in theaters on Jan. 5 and 6. Local theaters are Regency 20 in Brandon, Park Place Stadium 16 in Pinellas Park, Citrus Stadium Park 20 in Tampa and Veterans 24 in Tampa. Buy tickets at fathomevents.com/event/sherlock.
The new trailer gives us a taste of the apparently rather testy first meeting between Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and John Watson (Martin Freeman).
Perhaps the best news of all: PBS confirms that production of Sherlock Season 4 will begin in spring of 2016.
