WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Sherlock Holmes (Cumberbatch) and his best friend Dr. John Watson (Freeman) investigate a new thrilling case – only this time, things are set in the traditional 1890s London setting of the classic Arthur Conan Doyle stories…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Transporting the action to the traditional setting of Victorian London as opposed to the series’ more conventional modern-day establishment, this brand-new special episode of Sherlock – being played in cinemas at the same time as its broadcast on BBC One – should be a delight for fans of the series, as well as tide things over until the fourth season eventually comes out way.

WHEN’S IT OUT?

FRIDAY 1ST JANUARY 2016 (ONE DAY ONLY; ENCORE SCREENINGS DEPEND ON CINEMAS)
