Photo: “Sherlock” Xmas Special Portait

The BBC has released a photo of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman in their old school and period appropriate Sherlock Holmes and John Watson costumes for an upcoming standalone Christmas special of “Sherlock”.

Unlike the modern day reimagining, which gets a full new season next year, the new special is set to take place in the Victorian era. Further information about the special and the new season are expected later today at the show’s Comic-Con panel which executive producers Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue are attending.
