Return of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman drama attracts biggest audience of the day – but not the festive season

Nearly 10 million viewers tuned in to find out how Sherlock survived his rooftop plunge on BBC1 on Wednesday night, the acclaimed drama's biggest audience yet.

The third series of the Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman drama began with an average of 9.2 million viewers between 9pm and 10.30pm, peaking with 9.7 million for its first five minutes.

Sherlock had the highest audience of the day but not the biggest of the holiday period, unable to top an opponent even more powerful than MoriartyMrs Brown's Boys, the BBC1 sitcom which drew 9.4 million viewers on Christmas Day.

It was more than the 7.5 million viewers who saw the opening episode of the first series in July 2010 and the 8.8 million who watched the start of the second series on New Year's Day 2012.
