Sherlock Victorian Special Trailer: 'Make No Mistake, This Is War'

Sherlock is the new Bond?

OK, maybe not. But we’ll be darned if Benedict Cumberbatch’s one-liner from Sherlock‘s upcoming Victorian-era one-off — “The name is Sherlock Holmes. And the address is 221B Baker Street” — doesn’t give us the same kind of chills as 007’s “The name is Bond” refrain.

There’s still no explanation for how PBS’ modern-day detective reboot has been transported back — wayyyy back — to the 19th century, but who cares?

When Watson is huffing, “You’re Sherlock Holmes: Wear the damn hat,” the only correct emotional response is to wonder exactly how soon is implied by “Coming soon”?

    Any idea if PBS is actually airing this at Christmas? They usually don’t air the series for months after it airs in the UK (same with Downton. They could be airing DA right now instead of other things. Ugh!)

  2. Margie says:

    I can’t wait. It has been too long since the last one. This looks wonderful.

  3. Josefina V. Marin says:

    It has been a long wait…but I really love this series. Two great actors…they play off each other so well.

  4. Shannon says:

    I’m rather excited about this, though I do miss the longer hair of the ‘modern’ Sherlock.

  5. Bruce says:

    I believe, according to Moffat, there is no explanation. They are just doing a story set in Victorian times as a one-off for the fun of it.

  6. Sarah says:

    Usually airs New Years Day in the UK.

    NOW, NOW, NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    “There’s still no explanation for how PBS’ modern-day detective reboot …” As if PBS had anything to do with the BBC show other than buying it to show in the US.
