New Trailer Drops For 'Sherlock' Holiday Special ‘The Abominable Bride’


A new trailer has been released by BBC for the upcoming holiday special of "Sherlock."

Over a month ago, PBS and Masterpiece announced that a 90-minute special for the British crime drama series, "Sherlock," will air on Jan. 1, 2016.

The episode, dubbed "Sherlock: The Abominable Bride," premieres simultaneously on PBS's Masterpiece Mystery and online at 9 p.m. EST.

This is also the first time that the series premieres in the U.S. and the UK on the same day.

For those who won't be able to see the New Year show, an encore broadcast will be made available on Jan. 10 at 10 p.m. EST.

Meanwhile, fans who enjoy the big screen can also catch the episode at special theatre screenings. The two-night engagement, starting Jan. 5 will be celebrated on PBS by Masterpiece, BBC Worldwide North America and Fathom Events. An encore will also be held on Jan. 6, both shows screening at 7:30 p.m. local time. Tickets are available at the Fathom Events website. The site also provides details such as dates and theatre locations.

Starring Benedict Cumberbatch ("Black Mass" and "The Imitation Game") as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman ("The Hobbit" and "Fargo"), the series is a contemporary adaptation of the "Sherlock Holmes" detective stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

"Why is Thomas Ricoletti a little surprised to see his wife dressed in her old wedding gown? Because, just a few hours before, she took her own life," reads the official plot description for the episode.

The episode will see Mrs. Ricoletti's ghost on the prowl on account of her unquenchable thirst for revenge. It makes a return to the Victorian Era and features a certain "fog-shrouded Limehouse" and the "bowels of a ruined church."

The much-awaited episode airs on PBS and BBC One in the U.S., and in select theatres nationwide.
