Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman Tease SHERLOCK Special in Photo
The game is afoot! The BBC has officially revealed their plans for the return of Sherlock in a new special that they will be developing. They released the photo above featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as John Watson. What makes this photo so intriguing is the way they are dressed in period clothing. No reason is given to why that is, but it’s a fun tease of what could come. It came with the following caption: "#221back #Sherlock #notkidding".
Currently known only as “Sherlock Special,” the upcoming episode is being written by series creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, and it will supposedly air in late 2015 as a Christmas special. An image of the script they are working one was shared on Facebook, and Freeman teased it in an interview with The Mirror, in which he said,
“Steven and Mark have had a great idea [for] what they can do next, and it is an exciting, mouth watering idea… “
A fourth series is also expected to go into production in 2015, which will then air in 2016. Specific plans have yet to be revealed.
