‘Sherlock’ Victorian Christmas Special Will Be Shown In Cinemas; Title Revealed | TV News
Sherlock is returning to our screens this Christmas; but he may not be the same master detective we have come to know. The BBC & PBS joint production brought Sir Arthur Conan Doyle‘s series of novels into the 21st Century, playfully shifting the author’s narratives to a contemporary London. However, this one off Christmas special, written by show creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, will see Sherlock Holmes and John Watson returning to their native Victorian England.
Titled Sherlock: The Abominable Bride, the feature length episode will air on BBC One on January 1, 2016, alongside a limited cinematic release in over a hundred cinemas throughout the UK and Ireland. The next instalment of the Emmy winning detective series is currently shrouded in mystery. Moffat is well known for keeping secrets about his upcoming projects, and has often played with fan expectations through any pre-released material.
This is also not the first time a Moffat written series has graced the big screen; the Doctor Who special The Day of the Doctor, which saw three incarnations of the British science-fiction hero join forces, was also shown in Cineworld, Vue, and Picturehouse cinemas across the nation. Fans who choose to leave their homes on New Years Day to see the Abominable Bride will be treated to twenty minutes of extra footage; including a tour of the crime-solving duo’s headquarters, 221B Baker Street, and a behind the scenes feature presented by stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
See the Sherlockology website for a full list of screenings. Tickets will go on sale for Sherlock Homles: The Abominable Bride on November 2. Season four of Sherlock will begin shooting in the Spring of next year. Check out the cinematic release trailer below.
