SHERLOCK returns for a special promising “friendship, adventure, and murder”
As the holidays and 2016 get closer, fans are getting more and more insight into Sherlock: The Abominable Bride. The synopsis for the Victorian special has been released along with several new pictures.
“Dr John Watson, meet Mr Sherlock Holmes.”
We’ve been here before – but what if this wasn’t the modern day but the late Victorian period? What if the world’s most famous consulting detective and his best friend lived in a Baker Street of steam trains, hansom cabs, top hats and frock-coats?
Welcome to ‘Sherlock’ in 1895!
Some things, though, remain reassuringly the same. Friendship, adventure and especially, MURDER…
Why is Thomas Ricoletti a little surprised to see his wife dressed in her old wedding gown? Because, just a few hours before, she took her own life…
Mrs Ricoletti’s ghost now appears to be prowling the streets with an unslakeable thirst for revenge. From fog-shrouded Limehouse to the bowels of a ruined church, Holmes, Watson and their friends must use all their cunning to combat an enemy seemingly from beyond the grave and the final, shocking truth about… the Abominable Bride!
Is the bride a zombie? Or is there another person who is becoming the dead wife? I can’t wait to see this. The one picture that I can find of her slightly terrifies me. (I think it’s the lipstick.)
And here are the new pictures: And, as always, here’s the trailer.
The Sherlock Victorian Special airs on January 1, 2016 on BBC One and Masterpiece (PBS).
