"results all pointed to an abominable crime" [TWIS]

It's finally here! The news that many have been waiting for - the airdate of the Sherlock special.

This morning, MASTERPIECE and PBS announced that Sherlock: The Abominable Bride, a 90-minute special, will premiere Friday, January 1, 2016, on MASTERPIECE Mystery! on PBS at 9:00 pm ET, and simultaneously online at pbs.org/masterpiece. The special will have an encore broadcast on Sunday, January 10, at 10:00pm ET. This is the first time that Sherlock has premiered in the US and the UK on the same day.

We know that the special will take place in the 1890s and takes Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and John Watson (Martin Freeman) from London to the countryside in a rather dark and sinister adventure. Mrs. Hudson and Mary Morstan will certainly be part of the tale as well - the first in the series to not be set in modern times. Our previous coverage of the series can be found here.

PBS also announced that Sherlock Season 4 will go into production in Spring, 2016, with no airdate yet determined.

We can't think of a better way to recover from your New Year's Eve hangover than to tune in to watch this highly anticipated special.
