Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Watson (Martin Freeman) are going back in time. The hour-and-a-half-long New Year’s Day special, titled Sherlock: The Abominable Bride, sends the two pals back to 1895 London. The duo must track down Thomas Ricoletti’s ex-wife, a killer ghost who still sports her wedding gown. Watch the Sherlock: The Abominable Bride trailer after the jump.

New episodes of Sherlock probably won’t hit the air, at least in America, until 2016. If we’re lucky, maybe late 2015, but nothing is set in stone. Well, that’s not entirely true. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, who’ll both be seen in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, will soon shoot a special episode of the show that will air during 2015.
We don’t know exactly what will happen in the episode as the finale of the third season offered quite the cliffhanger, but we have the first image that hints at the story. Maybe this episode won’t actually be in sequential order with the rest of the show. Check out the Sherlock special image and see for yourself. Read More »
The BBC and PBS Masterpiece series Sherlock was the highlight of a panel at Comic Con today, with producers Mark Gatiss, Steven Moffat, and Sue Vertue in attendance. Not in the house were the show’s stars, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, because they are occupied with finishing up The Hobbit and filming the third season of Sherlock. But the two actors were showcased in a video introduction to the panel — greeted with Twilight panel-worthy screams from the audience — in which Cumberbatch “explained” just how Sherlock made it out of the end of season two.
The panel that followed was light on news but very entertaining, as Matiss, Moffat, and Vertue evaded questions and offered up a few observations about making the show, all the way through the nearly-complete third season. You can watch the actors’ video intro below, after which we’ll run down a few panel highlights. Needless to say there are some mild spoilers for the end of the second season below, and anyone who wants to go into the thitd season cold should watch the video below, but skip the panel recap.

Yesterday the news came out that the third season of BBC’s Sherlock is about to go into production, with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman reprising their lead roles as modern day versions of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson.
There was some question as to whether the third season might be the show’s last. Scheduling the long shoot is difficult, as each of the three episodes per season is basically structured like a mini-movie, and Cumberbatch and Freeman are increasingly busy with movie careers.
But now Cumberbatch has confirmed that a fourth season is planned. Read More »
A new British trailer for the Sherlock Holmes picture by Guy Ritchie has been let loose, timed to coincide with the release of the new Harry Potter. As well as running in our cinemas it is of course online, and you can see it after the break. While the overall structure of the thing and much of the material is the same as the US cut, there is quite a lot of new mucking about too. If you’re looking forward to the film, as many are, it probably gives you more of just what you’re waiting for. On the other hand, you like I might be more interested in an alternative take on Holmes that the BBC are preparing…
