The Abominable Bride: BBC releases new Sherlock trailer
James R | On 26, Oct 2015
The BBC has released a new trailer for this year’s Sherlock special – and confirmed a title to boot.
The one-off, 90-minute drama has been kept closely under wraps by Steven Moffat and the team: the only detail confirmed so far is that it will be set in 1895 London. After countless images and brief teasers, this full trailer gives us more of a glimpse of what’s in store, but still no concrete plot information. The Beeb, though, has officially revealed the title of the tale: The Abominable Bride.
What brings our duo back to the heyday of Arthur Conan Doyle’s original stories? Goodness knows. But the familiar faces from the present day are all here, from Rupert Graves and Una Stubbs to Louise Brealey and Amanda Abbington. In fact, we know far more about what’s going on behind the scenes than on screen: the feature-length episode, written by Moffat and Mark Gatiss, will also be screened in more than 100 UK cinemas at the same time as its TV broadcast on BBC One. It will even air in US on the same day on PBS – a reversal of the usual US/UK TV dynamic and the first time this has ever happened.
The BBC says that the cinema screenings will also feature bonus material, such as a tour of 221B Baker Street and making-of footage. For those itching to book their seats for Sherlock on the big screen, head to Odeon, Vue and Picturehouse cinema websites from Monday 2nd November. Otherwise, here’s the trailer:
