100 UK cinemas To Screen BBC's Sherlock New Year Special

“No sh*t, Sherlock.”

Would be the expected response upon hearing that Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman will be sleuthing it up once again this New Year’s Day. We suspect your diary is already marked.

However, now comes a real development on Sherlock: The Abominable Bride: the one-off episode, set in 1895, will also be screened in more than 100 UK cinemas at the same time as it is on BBC One. CUMBERBITCHES UNITE!

And it couldn't have happened to a better show. Given the usual hour and a half running time, and fact it stars two of Hollywood’s biggest stars, there’s no questioning its cinematic credentials. Especially on the atmospheric charm of that trailer.

Beamed in all branches of Picturehouse cinemas and selected Odeon and Vue cinemas, you can snap tickets up from 2 November.

Speaking of the development, which will also see extra material aired including creator Steven Moffat giving a behind-the-scenes tour, Moffat said: "Sherlock on the big screen. For us, it's a giant leap backwards - into Victorian London. The mean streets of 1895 have never looked so good.”

We would ask for 3D but Freeman’s twirly moustache might have an eye out.
