I think I read somewhere they're doing a one-off period episode (that's back in the right time, nothing to do with er, woman's things!). I wonder if that's the Christmas special. A stylish show, that for me has been let down by plot holes & lapses in logic, so I hope they tighten up the plotting.
Big news for Sherlock fans – the upcoming special – set in Victorian Times will be shown in cinemas first.
Stephen Moffat said so at the Sherlock panel at San Diego Comic Con (he was a busy man yesterday!)
From the BBC:
A special one-off episode of Sherlock will be shown in cinemas around the world, co-creator Steven Moffat announces at Comic-Con. Speaking at Comic-Con in San Diego, he told thousands of fans of the TV show the story, set in Victorian England, would also be seen “on the big screen”. The Victorian-era Christmas special will also play in select theaters in the U.S. this December, showrunner Steven Moffat revealed. Details will be announced in due course.
