Sherlock as you’ve never seen him before in series 3 set photos

Benedict Cumberbatch's detective goes down and out for episode three


Forget those bouncy, glossy curls and the neat and tidy trademark overcoat-and-scarf combo, Sherlock is going down and out in the final episode of series three of the detective drama.


Shots from the set show Benedict Cumberbatch unshaven, scowling and dressed in sweat pants and an anorak. There’s even a derelict building and an old tramp with a shopping trolley to complete the picture.

Is the detective down on his luck or has he gone under cover to hide from his enemies or solve a case? Only time will tell…

The good news is, John (Martin Freeman) and his new wife (Amanda Abbington) are soon along to pick their friend up in a rather posh Audi….

Sherlock series three is expected to air at the end of the year or in early 2014.
