Sherlock - Series 3 Airdate Confirmed
It might have been a long wait but it's a wait that is finally over. After weeks of speculation, not only were we given a trailer for the upcoming third series of Sherlock on Saturday last but the BBC have now confirmed the airdate as well.
The third series will air on New Year's Day 2014on BBC1 with the opening episode, titled The Empty Hearse. Written by Mark Gatiss, the episode will reunite both Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and John Watson (Martin Freeman) and focus on how exactly the former survived the fall from the previous series.
On the 5th of January, the second installment, The Sign Of Three by Stephen Thompson will air before the finale, titled His Last Vow airs on the 12th of January. The final story, written by Steven Moffat will also introduce Lars Mikkelson's Charles Augustus Magnussen into the mix and will end on another cliffhanger. For now though, I guess the great detective really does live.
