Well, it looks like the Sherlock one-off special has a name and release date…

Speaking at London Comic Con, showrunner Stephen Moffat told the audience: “I can exclusively reveal that the long wait for Sherlock will begin again in the late evening of January 1st [and] it will go out in America on the same day.”

Mark Gatiss was on hand to reveal that it has a title too: “The special is called the Abominable Bride,” and it is based on Ricoletti of the club foot and his abominable wife, which is one of the cases Watson refers to in the original Sherlock Holmes stories but not one that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle actually expanded on.

So, there you have it Sherlock fans, Holmes and Watson will return in a way unlike any we’ve seen of them so far on January 1st, 2016 worldwide.

Well, that was elementary, wasn’t it? I’ll get my hat.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
