Sherlock producer Sue Vertue has tweeted a picture of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman in classic Victorian costume for the one-off special in 2015 accompanied by the hashtag #notkidding.


The cast and crew assembled today for the first read-through.


Filming for the special is expected to begin in January. Filming for the fourth series will begin later in 2015, with plans to broadcast in 2016. Steven Moffat has promised an emotional fourth series.
