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.
