Yesterday, we got our first official look at the Christmas Special for Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role of super sleuth Sherlock Holmes with Martin Freeman as his crime-solving partner Dr. John Watson.
And today brings the very first footage from the Special, which will take place in Victorian-era London.
Watch the first clip here below!
BBC previously released a different teaser image for the special back in November.
When the news about the Special broke this time last year (along with the news of the show’s renewal for a fourth season), it was touted as a “Christmas Special,” yet the network seems to be shying away from that classification now – perhaps because they still don’t know exactly when they’ll be releasing it. At the Sherlock panel today at San Diego Comic-Con, showrunner Steven Moffat said the Special will be out in â€œthe next year, we hope,â€ according to Deadline.
This first clip, which premiered at SDCC today, was posted to social media by BBC and PBS, who are co-producing the project, with the captions “The boys will be back soon…ish!” and “#Sherlock Special. Coming soon… ish”
