Sherlock is known for having exceedingly enthusiastic fans, who are waiting with bated breath for the upcoming holiday special, “The Abominable Bride.” The BBC released some new character portraits of the main players in their finest Victorian garb that are sure to inspire some passionately written fan fiction before the special even airs. The images were posted on the show’s official Facebook page, and they do not disappoint.
Between Watson’s mustache and Lestrade’s muttonchops, the hair situation is truly the gift that keeps on giving. Now if they could go ahead and release some official images of Mary’s sure to be stunning couture, that would be great. Luckily for us Yanks, the special will air in the UK and the US on Christmas Day, with theater run on January 5 and 6.
