Get ready for the return of Sherlock with this 7 minute prequel episode

Dec. 24, 2013by: Alex Maidy

The third series of SHERLOCK starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman doesn't air in the UK for another week (three more weeks for anyone in the US) but just in time for Christmas comes a brand new seven minute mini-episode that serves as a prequel to the three new episodes of the detective series.

Starring Martin Freeman and Rupert Graves, this clip shows how those from Sherlock's life are coping after his "death" and deal with rumored appearances from the master investigator.  Whether it be at a Buddhist monastery or an Indian police precinct, some believe that Holmes could show up anywhere.  The results are funny and eerie.  Cumberbatch makes a quick appearance as well, teasing fans for the long-anticipated new batch of shows.

I am very excited for SHERLOCK and this video is just enough to tide me over until we get the new shows.  Enjoy!

"Many happy returns..."

The eventual backlash for this shitty series will be a thing of legend.

I do hope they get to track down the missing Arkenstone.

Can't wait!

This was an excellent tease for the upcoming season. Took me a little while to realize that was Anderson rocking the full beard there though!

Excellent series...it's just...

I love this series, Benedict Cumberbatch is incredible as Sherlock Holmes. I just don't get why they only have 3 episodes a year. If someone has that answer, can they plz post it? I'd like to know.

They're 90 minutes each! I'd rather have what the Brits do and have less episodes of quality than what the Americans (network broadcast anyways) do with 22-26 episodes of a lot of meh! Quality over quantity.

Exactly. 24 episodes of Elementary can't hold a candle to one episode of Sherlock.

To elaborate, on BBC, TV series normally get 6 hour long episodes per season (except for Dr. Who and a couple others). Sherlock was reformatted shortly after the pilot was shot to be an extended length per episode for pacing reasons. Thus, three 90 minute episodes instead of six 60 minute episodes.

I does drive me crazy though, because in each episode they introduce enough brilliant ideas to fill a whole 26-episode season!
