It may be frustrating for Sherlock fans to have to wait two years between new episodes of the incredibly popular BBC show – thanks to the success of its stars, Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange) and Martin Freeman (The Hobbit) – but there’s something about waiting so long that kicks the anticipation up a notch or two. New Sherlock episodes have becomes something of an event experience, not unlike new installments of a major movie franchise – your Star Wars or your Harry Potters or your Lord of the Rings, for example.
Filming is currently taking place for the next Sherlock episode – believed to be a Christmas special airing at the end of 2015 – and it features Cumberbatch and Freeman looking much the same as they did in the previously released official image (above). As you can see, Sherlock and Watson are wearing Victorian attire that harkens back to the Sherlock Holmes adaptations of yore – the Basil Rathbone movies, the Peter Cushing movie, the Jeremy Brett TV series, among others.
The Sherlock special episode – probably a Christmas special – will debut near the end of 2015.
