Now poised to put Holmes and Watson – Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman returning in their respective roles – back on the case, attempting to solve the seemingly unsolvable, no further details were release regarding Jones’ malevolent role (surprise!), though we do understand his character won’t make an appearance until season 4’s second episode.
Welcoming the casting of Jones, series co-creator Stephen Moffat did tease that he was “delighted to have Toby Jones on board, bringing to life one of Doyle’s finest villains;” while fellow showrunner Mark Gatiss added, “we’re thrilled to welcome one of our finest actors to the Sherlock family. I know Toby will embrace the part with true relish.”

Sherlock Christmas Special, The Abominable Bride, delivered a shock, but isn’t that all part of this glorious show’s game?
This review contains spoilers.
“It’s called The Adventure of Having Your Cake and Eating It!” Mark Gatiss joked on the set of the Victorian-era Sherlock special, displaying the kind of self-aware humour that the episode—now going by the catchier title of The Abominable Bride—was fat with.
It’s a great line of course, but also an admission. Having poured their Doyle super-fandom into creating a staggeringly successful modern Holmes and Watson, Gatiss and Steven Moffat were now going back in time to, in their own words, do it properly. Bowler hats, hansom cabs and gaslight properly. The prospect clearly filled them with glee, and the result was gleeful. For about an hour.
Having settled its audience comfortably into what seemed like perfect New Year’s Day television—entertaining, »
Sherlock, Season 3, Episode 4, “The Abominable Bride”
Written by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffatt
Directed by Douglas Mackinnon
Aired Friday, January 2nd at 9pm Et on PBS
It has been a while since Sherlock Holmes last graced our screens—two years, to be exact. In the closing moments of the last episode, “His Last Vow,” he was sent off to exile as punishment for the murder of Charles Magnussen. However, he was recalled moments after taking off due to the reappearance of Jim Moriarty (Andrew Scott). With Season Four expected to arrive next year, Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Watson (Martin Freeman) return with a Victorian-themed special, which is perhaps the most perplexing episode to date.
“The Abominable Bride” sees the duo investigate a series of murders committed by a woman, Emilia Ricoletti, who is already dead. As Sherlock delves deeper into the mystery, he finds himself haunted by old ghosts, namely his nemesis Moriarty. »

Woo! Sherlock is back! Well, was back. Not for long, granted, but still, Sherlock! And this time, things were a little bit different – or actually, business as usual. Feeling like a good mix of the original Arthur Conan Doyle novels and the 2010 reimagining. It was especially interesting to see Louise Brealey’s Molly Hooper in Victorian...
