SHERLOCK: Season 4 is coming to MASTERPIECE on PBS in 2017!
Benedict Cumberbach (“The Imitation Game”) and Martin Freeman ("The Hobbit") return as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in the acclaimed modern retelling of Arthur Conan Doyle's classic stories. But now our heroes find themselves in 1890s London. Beloved characters Mary Morstan (played by Amanda Abbington), Inspector Lestrade (Rupert Graves) and Mrs. Hudson (Una Stubbs) also turn up at 221b Baker Street. “Sherlock: The Abominable Bride” is a 90-minute SHERLOCK Special.
"Dr. John Watson, meet Mr. Sherlock Holmes.” We've been here before - but what if this wasn't the modern day but the late Victorian period? What if the world's most famous consulting detective and his best friend lived in a Baker Street of steam trains, hansom cabs, top hats and frock-coats?
Welcome to Sherlock in 1895! Some things, though, remain reassuringly the same. Friendship, adventure and especially, murder...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...Mrs. Ricoletti's ghost now appears to be prowling the streets with an unslakeable thirst for revenge.
From fog-shrouded Limehouse to the bowels of a ruined church, Holmes, Watson and their friends must use all their cunning to combat an enemy seemingly from beyond the grave and the final, shocking truth about...the Abominable Bride!
