It is SO on! Sherlock and Dr Watson will be returning to 221 Baker Street soon as we’re getting a special one-off episode of the series next year!

The rumour of a Sherlock’s special Christmas episode in 2015 was recently confirmed by the producers of Sherlock as they announced that the series will be back with a special, followed by three new episodes. The special one-off episode was first mentioned by Sherlock star Martin Freeman when he strongly hinted that there will be Christmas special.

If that’s going to be a special – I’m speaking off-message here; if this was New Labour I’d get fired – I think that might be for next Christmas. A Christmas special. That’s what I understand,” says Martin Freeman during an interview with The Telegraph.


But of course, the special episode will not be aired this Christmas as the shooting will only begin in January 2015. The production of the special episode will then be followed by the shooting of three new episodes for Season 4. However, that doesn’t mean that you won’t be seeing Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman on screen as the two who are currently occupied with various films and dramas including Fargo and the final installment of The Hobbit trilogy (although Cumberbatch is only a voice actor here).


If you are wondering what to expect from the special episode, we say just..”expect the unexpected”! Also, expect a certain Moriarty to come back too.

Oh yes, do you miss him? Well, do you?
