The BBC's wildly popular adaptation of Sherlock Holmes has always had one very unique thing going for it- its modern setting. But it seems like all that is about to change, for one episode anyway.
Filming of the Christmas special, set to air this year, is currently taking place around the UK, with filming spotted in Gloucester, Bath, and at North Gower Street, London, the stand in setting for Cumberbatch's 221b residence. But with one major difference... it's all gone a bit Victorian.
The two leads, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, have been seen sporting costumes straight out of the original Holmes stories, including deer stalkers, capes, pipes, and moustaches. Fake snow and the stereotypical old London fog has also been added to provide that ancient Christmas feel!
It looks as though this story will be inspired by the canon story "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle". However, as with the previous 9 episodes, the story will more than likely hint at the original rather than following any plot points too closely.
The BBC has already confirmed the show will return this year with a festive special before a new three-episode series starts.
Is it Christmas yet?
