Sherlock: The Abominable Bride will see Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman reprise their roles as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson in a one-off episode set in Victorian London in 1895. The episode has been co-written by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss with performances by Rupert Graves, Una Stubbs, Louise Brealey and Amanda Abbington. It is directed by Douglas Mackinnon (Doctor Who, Line of Duty).
Sherlock is a global phenomenon, engaging audiences from Berlin to Beijing, from Texas to Tokyo. The show has been sold to over 240 territories across the world, won 12 BAFTAs, 7 Emmys® and a prestigious Peabody Award as well as accolades at the Edinburgh TV Festival and the Television Critics Association in the U.S. Sherlock made its mark in U.S. pop-culture being one of only three British TV shows that have appeared on the cover of Entertainment Weekly.
“Sherlock on the big screen. For us, it’s a giant leap backwards – into Victorian London. The mean streets of 1895 have never looked so good,” states co-writer Steven Moffat, October 2015.
“It’s not suddenly going to be a different show. It’s essentially our Sherlock as if we’d always done it set in 1895. It has the same sensibility. The language is obviously slightly different but we wanted it to feel as funny and as vivid as our modern-day one. Otherwise it would be a sort of dusty period piece which is not what we are interested in,” states co-writer Mark Gatiss, August 2015.
