Newswire: Here’s your first look at Victorian Cumberbatch in the Sherlock Christmas special

As we’ve previously reported, Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, and their hit BBC show Sherlock are heading back in time for this year’s Christmas Special. The one-off 90-minute episode will transport Cumberbatch’s brilliant-yet-sociopathic Sherlock Holmes and Freeman’s average-yet-likable John Watson to Victorian London, which is the sort of clever twist that could only be conjured up by modern television writers. Most of the details about the special—like whether or not there’ll be any explanation for why the show suddenly takes place in a different era—haven’t been announced yet, but the BBC has released a promo image of Holmes and Watson in some retro outfits that should act as a suitable tease for Sherlock fans.
