Sherlock is returning to our screens later this year finally. It takes a long time to put together an episode of the show, but in fact its a wonder it gets made at all.
The two stars, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, have gone on to become huge movie actors over in La-La Land, both of them appearing in Peter Jacksons The Hobbit trilogy, and slated for roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year.
Its a credit to just how good the show is that they keep coming back to it now, with the pair somehow managing to find time in their increasingly busy schedules to fit it in. This in particular applies to Cumberbatch, who despite being a very active actor perhaps spends even more time being linked to projects than actually appearing in them.
The gap between the series is getting longer, but to ease that this year theres going to be a special episode, presumed to be airing at Christmas, before the next three-episode run.
Few details have been given away so far, even with the appearance of a trailer at this years San Diego Comic-Con. All we know so far is that itll be a totally standalone episode, and that itll take place in Victorian times. How that comes to be, and everything else, is up for speculation. Lets get started, shall we?
