“The stage is set, the curtain rises, we are ready to begin.”
Benedict Cumberbatch makes his way back to 221 Baker Street as the world’s most famous literary detective, Sherlock Holmes, in the new official trailer for BBC’s upcoming “Sherlock” Christmas special episode.
The highly anticipated one-off special promises to deliver a dark and thrilling story set in Victorian London and this is evident in its new spine-chilling trailer.
Not only does it look spooky, the episode also seems more dramatic because of its intense-filled trailer. This came after BBC offered us a first glimpse at the special episode during San Diego Comic-Con 2015 (SDCC 2015).

Cumberbatch is returning to this episode alongside Martin Freeman, who will reprise his role as Sherlock’s assistant Dr. John Watson.
This episode will have no plot connections to the past seasons of “Sherlock”. As it takes place at the time when author Arthur Conan Doyle first wrote the characters, the dynamic duo can be seen sporting vintage clothing in the trailer.
A couple of new footages are featured in the trailer too, giving us a first glimpse at their landlady Mrs Hudson, John’s wife Mary, and Inspector Lestrade in their traditional Victorian attire.

Co-produced by BBC and PSS, the “Sherlock” Special began production earlier in January. Many details are still kept under wraps and it still does not have an official air date yet.
The 4th season of “Sherlock” will, however, be released in 2016.
