In a matter now of just two short days, “Sherlock: The Abominable Bride” is going to be arriving on the BBC in the United Kingdom and PBS in America, and you don’t have to wait any longer to see a new video behind the scenes!
This clip below comes via PBS, and it features stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman alongside executives producers Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue discussing some of the different elements that went into making this special, and how everything for the most part felt significantly “slower.” It took more time to properly produce many of the scenes in the period setting, there was more work done on the costumes, and some of the characters had to shift ever so slightly.
For Cumberbatch, though, he admits that he may not have had to make as harsh of a transition as many of his other co-stars, simply due to the fact that his largely considers his modern version of the character to be rather old-fashioned in his own way. Their methods are slightly different, but Holmes and Watson are in the end still Holmes and Watson.
This special will be in many ways a snack to tide longtime fans of the series over until the fourth season premieres at some point down the line. Given that this season has yet to even begin filming, it is rather hard to speculate as to just when it will be airing around the world.
