Sherlock returns in the first clip from 2015 Christmas special

“I had to grow this moustache just so people will recognise me.”

If a Doctor Who trailer wasn’t enough for one night, San Diego Comic Con has now given fans its first look at the Sherlock Christmas special.


Presented by writer Steven Mofatt, producer Sue Vertue and co-star Rupert Graves, the meta clip sets Benedict Cumberbatch’s titular detective and Martin Freeman’s Watson in their more traditional dwellings of Victorian London. For what purpose, however, is unclear. 

Watch for yourself below.
