Official Sherlock Special Trailer!

Originally posted on Fandom Addict:
Hi everyone, I know I’ve posted a lot about this, but it’s just too exciting to ignore! We finally have a real trailer for the Sherlock special! As I’ve said in my many previous posts, the new Sherlock one-off episode will be set in Victorian times, in the original Sherlock Holmes time period. The episode is set to air Christmas 2015.

Comment below!

Yes, the Doctor’s wife is back this for the Christmas Special, presumably because Moffat realizes he’s got a really bad track record with his female fans, but also because she is an amazing character and I’ve written Santa for two years now, begging for her return. I hope that this isn’t some strange, ghost version of River Song post-Library in the 2015 Christmas episode because NOPE, no thank you. I want to see the River who knows Eleven but hasn’t met Ten, and happens to bump into Twelve (she has the book with all his faces,…
