SHERLOCK has been rooted in the real world for three seasons, but it looks like it may be venturing in to the world of the supernatural in the upcoming standalone, Victorian special.
In “The Abominable Bride”, Sherlock and Watson are firmly entrenched in 1895 and things are very different. And something very strange is happening in London: “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.”
The new preview below gives us a better look at the ghostly, revenge-seeking bride. Don’t miss the 90 minute SHERLOCK special on January 1 on BBC in the UK or PBS in the U.S.
