We’ve been treated to a new promotional shot of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman in full Victorian costume for the upcoming Sherlock holiday special.


Producer Sue Vertue tweeted the first image from the special last year, and a glimpse of the script, but as usual almost everything is well under wraps. The special will be a one-off set in 1895, as Steven Moffat told EW:

“The special is its own thing. We wouldn’t have done the story we’re doing, and the way we’re doing it, if we didn’t have this special. It’s not part of the run of three episodes. So we had this to do it – as we could hardly conceal – it’s Victorian. [Co-creator Mark Gatiss] and me, we wanted to do this, but it had to be a special, it had to be a separate entity on its own. It’s kind of in its own little bubble.”

Here’s the first teaser:
