And with eight days to go, here are some pictures of the second series of BBC's Sherlock to behold.
Andrew Scott certainly looks dapper in a suit as Jim Moriarty and considering that we've got him in both A Scandal In Belgravia and The Reichenback Fall, he should be causing more headaches for Sherlock and Watson.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock Holmes and John Watson respectively. A second year working together and also there's a moment where they, er, punch each other. Should be interesting to see.
Russell Tovey as the tormented Henry Night. I have to admit, I am looking forward to seeing how Mark Gatiss reimagines The Hounds Of Baskerville.
Lara Pulver as Irene Adler, who in this version is supposed to be a lesbian dominatrix who also manages to prove quite the intellectual match for Sherlock.
Mark Gatiss - when he's not writing episodes for the show, he's guest starring again as Sherlock's brother, Mycroft. Hopefully he's better utilised this series.
