First Photo: “Sherlock” Late 2015 Special

BBC One has used their official Twitter feed to post the first promo photo for the one-off special of “Sherlock” due to air late next year. The special begins production in January and precedes a full fourth series which will go into production later in 2015 for a 2016 airing.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman seemed to be dressed up in garb more appropriate to the classic Holmes and Watson of Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories, Cumberbatch also seems to be emulating an iconic outfit Jeremy Brett donned in the 1980s “Sherlock Holmes” Granada TV series – see this photo for comparison.

Producer Sue Vertue confirms that the pair will appear in these outfits in the special. BBC One has also tweeted a copy of the cover of the script for the special which you can see below:
