Sherlock: The Abominable bride character posters

The wait has, as usual, been long and excruciating, but the new Sherlock special episode is nearly upon us. And to help keep that in mind, US broadcaster PBS has put out some character posters for The Abominable Bride.

Pictured at the top, of course, are Benedict Cumberbatch’s Mr. Holmes and Martin Freeman’s Dr. Watson in all their Victorian finery, complete with a ‘tache-tastic visage for the latter. This latest episode, written by show co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, works as a stand-alone (so don’t expect Andrew Scott’s Moriarty to pop up and ask us again if we’ve missed him, unless they go even more meta than this show sometimes dares), and plunges our heroes into a seemingly supernatural case that requires their skills to be at full power.

Joining them, as per usual, are Una Stubbs’ Mrs. Hudson and Amanda Abbington’s Mary Morstan, AKA Mrs. Watson. And the cast – though the others have yet to get their own posters – also features fellow regulars Rupert Graves, Louise Brealey and Jonathan Aris. Finally, the one new face, obscured though it may be – to get her own image is the Bride herself, preferring to stay mysterious for now. The special will air on the BBC and PBS on January 1, after which broadcast we go back into waiting mode for the next series, not due until 2017. Stupid busy cast schedules…
