A trailer has been released for the one-off Sherlock special, and fans of the BBC series are understandably ecstatic. A clip from the special was shown back in July during San Diego Comic-Con 2015.
The special is just like any episode of the series…only set in Victorian-era London in the 19th century to give it that classic Sherlock Holmes feel. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock and Martin Freeman as Dr. John Watson.
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.
This time last year, BBC One announced the renewal of their popular television series Sherlock for a fourth season, along with a 2015 Christmas Special to precede it.
Now, the network has released the first official photo from the upcoming Sherlock special, which shows Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role of super sleuth Sherlock Holmes with Martin Freeman as his crime-solving partner Dr. John Watson.
It’s been a rough couple of weeks for Netflix users who are also fans of BBC shows. Word leaked out a little over a week ago that the contract between Netflix and the BBC to carry popular shows like Doctor Who, Luther, Black Adder, Sherlock, and Red Dwarf was up for renewal on February 1, 2015, but the two sides had not yet reached a deal! If the two sides did not come to terms, then Netflix would no longer carry BBC content after the end of this month. More than one article appeared on web sites warning everyone to “get that last bit of binge watching in now!”
The issue is now settled, with most BBC content, including Doctor Who, remaining on Netflix, according to THR.
The folks at BBC One tweeted an exciting picture this afternoon of a couple of prominent detectives in early 20th century attire. In what could be a teaser for a return of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman‘s Sherlock Holmes and Watson in the popular series Sherlock, the image below will no doubt get fans worked up and excited for the detective’s return.
