  • Release date, title and poster for the new Victorian-set Sherlock revealed

The off-story Victorian installment of the worldwide sensation Sherlock’s release date was announced along with the new poster and title for the movie that will release in cinemas.

Sherlockians has been living off the teasers and the glimpses of the Moffat’s Victorian attempt of Sherlock. The award winning director has revealed that he was having a fun day with Martin Freeman (The Hobbit), who plays John Watson, when they discussed a kind of dream sequence of some kind being included on the show.

Moffat said that they decided to a Victorian installation just because they can. Moffat said that they will not explain what Holmes and Watson are doing in the Victorian times as they never explained what they were doing in the modern day.

The fans can now rejoice as BBC has finally released an official poster featuring a gothic and eerie looking Sherlock and Watson with a shadowy bride. The bride explains the new revealed title, ‘The Abominable Bride’.

The poster reveals the date of the premiere of The Abominable Bride as well. The network has decided the date at 1st January, 2016 and there could not be a better way to kick off the New Year. The episode will be premiered on the BBC One as well.

PBS has signed agreement to release the shows only after they have been released on BBC. The American networks were still signed to premiere the content months after British air dates.

However, piracy and illegal download has bridged the duration gap to almost non-existent and it will be safe to say that the worldwide premiere of Sherlock: The Abominable Bride will be on 1st January, 2016. 

The network also treated the fans to a full fledge TV trailer for the upcoming installment. The Victorian era of Sherlock will feature its usual camaraderie consisting of Mary Morstan (played by Amanda Abbington), Inspector Lestrade (Rupert Graves) and Mrs. Hudson (Una Stubbs).

The address remains 221b Baker Street as told by Holmes in the trailer. The hovering question of why Sherlock wears a hat gets answered in the trailer. As John Watson puts it, You’re Sherlock Holmes. Just wear the hat.
