First official Sherlock series 3 image released

5 Nov 2013

Hartswood Films and BBC One have today released the first official picture from the highly anticipated series three of Sherlock.

The question on everyone’s lips will finally be answered when Sherlock returns with three brand-new action-packed adventures. How did he do it? And how will John take the news that his best friend faked his own death? What will Sherlock think when he finds out John has fallen in love with Mary Morstan? She’s sensible, quick-witted and not at all taken in by Sherlock’s posturing. Once again, the game is on for Sherlock and John in the first episode of the new series, The Empty Hearse, written by Mark Gatiss.

The Empty Hearse will air in the US on PBS Masterpiece on 19th January 2014.

The UK transmission date for BBC One has not been released yet.
