‘Sherlock’ fans have been given a surprise treat, in the form of a new promotional snap for the show’s upcoming Christmas special.
As with the previously released promo picture, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are sporting Victorian era outfits, which seems to confirm that the duo will be stepping back in time for the one-off episode.
The show’s plot has been shrouded in secrecy, and it’s unlikely that we’ll get any more clues as to what Sherlock and his loyal sidekick will be up to. However the drama’s co-creator Steven Moffat has promised that things are going to take a “darker” turn.
It is expected that a full series will follow the Christmas special, but Benedict and Martin both have pretty packed schedules during the coming months.
This summer, Benedict will tread the boards at the Barbican, playing the tragic hero Hamlet, before filming Marvel adaptation ‘Dr Strange’.
Martin has also landed a Marvel role, in the movie ‘Captain America: Civil War’.
Bosses are yet to confirm an air date for the new episode of ‘Sherlock’, so watch this space…
