Fans of detective drama starring Benedict Cumberbatch will finally find out how Holmes survived fall and faked his own death

Sherlock will return to BBC1 on New Year's Day when the mystery will finally be resolved how the sleuth survived that plunge to his apparent certain death.

The BBC took the unusual step of using an empty hearse, with its return date spelled out in the back, travelling around central London on Friday to announce its return.

Its use of Twitter and the hashtag #sherlocklives was rather more de rigeur, ensuring that the show was trending on Twitter as fans were sent into a frenzy by its imminent return.

The exact return date of the show, for a new three-part series, has been the source of much speculation – almost as much as the mystery around his fall – since it was revealed it would return in the Us on 19 January.
