For those that are unaware, this Christmas will see a very special festive Sherlock episode. The special episode which will air before the beginning of the newest season will take us back to Victorian England. Showrunners Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are taking Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman back to the roots of the source material. We are finally going to get to see how the actors would look in the more traditional versions of the characters they play in the modern retelling of the consultant detective.

Sherlock- Holmes and Watson carriageBBC have released a teaser for all of their biggest TV events that are coming in Autumn (Fall if you are American) and Winter. Which of course includes the 2015 Sherlock Christmas special. Though there isn’t a lot of footage on show here there is some. You can see the trailer in question above.

Sherlock Christmas SpecialA better look at the Sherlock Christmas special can be seen in a first look trailer that was released earlier this month. Having watched that trailer also I have to say I am very excited for this special episode. There are so many nuances even in the very short scene. For example the soundtrack is very similar to what it is like in the modern episodes but with a more archaic spin on it so as to immerse the audience in the Victorian era as much as possible. 221B Baker Street looks incredible, not only that it is wonderful to hear the characters talking about The Hound of the Baskervilles as a story written by Watson.
