Ahead of the Christmas special of "Doctor Who" and the New Year's Day launch of the third series of "Sherlock," The BBC have unveiled a bunch of new photos from both shows. Check out all of them in the galleries below.
An official synopsis is also out for the 'Who' Xmas special which will air 7.30pm on Christmas Day in the UK, and 9/8c on BBC America in the United States:
"Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe’s deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars. And amongst them – the Doctor. Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe.
In other 'Who' news, it seems the Christmas special may answer one question that a specific episode brought up. »

Few working actors today have extracted such a variety of rich performances in a short period of time as Benedict Cumberbatch. In 2013 alone, he played Julian Assange to critical acclaim, filmed the third season of Sherlock for the BBC and took on one of the most famous villains in science-fiction cinema: Khan. However, the articulate Star Trek Into Darkness actor recently revealed a displeasure for director J.J. Abrams, particularly in the filmmaker’s decision to keep the identity of his then-cryptic role in the Star Trek sequel a secret.
Abrams commented earlier in the week that it may have been a mistake not to reveal that Khan was in the film, as the director and other cast and crew members denied routinely than the famous villain was a character in Star Trek Into Darkness. Cumberbatch portrayed Khan in the guise of a ruthless character named John Harrison before revealing his »

While Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch will be sharing the screen (kind of) in next weekend’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, we don’t have much longer to wait for their proper reunion on season three of the excellent BBC series Sherlock. The show returns to UK airwaves on New Years Day and begins airing here in the Us just a couple of weeks later, and now a batch of first-look images have landed online that give us a peek at Sherlock’s return and Watson’s very impressive mustache. Hit the jump to take a look at the images, and if you missed the first teaser trailer click here. Sherlock season three returns to PBS January 19th. Via EW.

Benedict Cumberbatch is having one of those moments that actors dream of, where they are suddenly not only acclaimed for their work, but given opportunity to play a wide range of roles in material that they genuinely love. "Sherlock" may have been the thing that finally made him wildly in-demand, but he's been building towards this moment for a little while now, and he seems to be cherishing it now that it's arrived. I don't remember him from "Fortysomething" or "Nathan Barley," but I must have seen him in them. Same with "Starter For 10" or "Amazing Grace." It was "Atonement" »

The actor - who stars alongside Martin Freeman in the BBC drama - said that fan fiction is "part of the love people have for the show".
Speaking about the show's fans, he told The Independent on Saturday's Radar magazine: "They don't teach you how to deal with that.
"I had a friend who once squeezed her rabbit too much until it started to squeal and she thought it was kind of going, 'I love you', when it was really saying, of course, 'You are the reason I'm dying'.
"But what I love about the show is that there are lots of people who weren't outside the hotel today equally excited to see it and are just waiting for it as a quality piece of television."
Cumberbatch also admitted that social media has given a platform for Sherlock fan fiction, »
Who knew Sherlock was a fan of slow-burning, explicitly sexual hip-hop?
Well, that’s elementary, my dear Watson, especially when it comes to Jimmy Kimmel Live late night antics. Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch appeared on Kimmel last night and gave a dramatic reading of R. Kelly’s “Genius,” a song from the artist’s upcoming album Black Panties.
“I give you Emmy, Golden Globe, and BAFTA nominee, Benedict Cumberbatch,” announced Kimmel to an impenetrable wall of audience shrieks. It was a simple setup — the English actor sat only on a stool, bathed in a single light — you know, the better »

There's nothing more that many Cumbercookies would want than for "Sherlock" hottie Benedict Cumberbatch to become the next bachelor in their lives. "Jimmy Kimmel Live" made that wish come true in some small way during Cumberbatch's Dec. 4 appearance when the late night show introduced his new project: "The Cumberbachelor."
Made from a mash up of "Sherlock" and "The Bachelor" clips, the video is nothing less than amazing (though not quite as amazing as Cumberbatch's R. Kelly reading). Whenever Cumberbatch is willing to cash out on his television and film career, he should definitely consider making a transition into reality television.
Interestingly enough, there's already something of a Cumberbatch/"The Bachelor" crossover happening with Juan Pablo Galavis this season. He and his bachelorettes headed to the set of "The Hobbit" in New Zealand for one trip, and Cumberbatch voices the dragon Smaug in the upcoming film. Coincidence? Sherlock Holmes certainly wouldn't think so. »
We love the BBC (heck, our Sky+ is full to the brim with Pointless repeats) and we don't want to get told off, so we won't be breaking the embargo. In fact, we're so against showing these pictures until Saturday, we deliberately won't show you Any of the 30 new shots.
1. So we Definitely don't have any new pictures of Benedict and Martin standing outside 221b with a deerstalker and big grin.
2. There are no shiny new close-up shots of Cumberbatch's cheekbones here.
4. We haven't got any pictures of Mark Gatiss looking devilish as Mycroft.
5. Nobody needs new pictures of Una Stubbs in series three, right?

Following on from the big (if not all that shocking, given the last series' date) announcement that Sherlock Series 3 will finally make its way to our screens from New Year’s Day, some new imagery from the show has arrived online and can be pored over for possible clues in the gallery below. The new series, of course, finds Holmes’ friends mourning the fact that he’s dead and gone, without realising that he’s been playing a merry jape on them and that he’s actually alive and well and as snarktastic as ever. Bet they’ll be so pleased to learn the truth and no one will complain about being kept in the dark. At all...This series’ episodes includes Mark Gatiss’ The Empty Hearse, Stephen Thompson’s The Sign Of Three (Jan 5) and Steven Moffat’s His Last Vow (Jan 12). If you're a fan of the show, »
Two years is a long time to wait for another season of the BBC’s modern update of Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective stories, Sherlock. Luckily, stars Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch found time in between their other commitments to film three more episodes of the show earlier this year, and season 3 of Sherlock will return to our televisions in January 2014.
There’s been a recent flurry of marketing to promote the new episodes, which will air in the UK less than a month from now, including a trailer that was shown immediately after the end of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special. That kind of placement suggests that the BBC really is pushing Sherlock as its flagship drama show, as does the reveal of the premiere date via a publicity stunt involving a real hearse parked on Baker Street with the date spelled out in funeral flowers.

"Sherlock" is really coming back! Season 3 begins on Jan. 1 in the UK and Jan. 19 in the United States, but there are already photos from the upcoming season to help fans wait.

Mary Morstan looks a little happier at least.
What's the verdict on Watson's mustache? Think he'll keep it?
Mrs. Hudson looks a little shocked. Is Sherlock to blame for this?
Inspector Lestrade, meanwhile, just looks as perplexed (and vaguely amused) as ever.

The BBC has released new pictures from the Doctor Who Christmas special.
'The Time of the Doctor' - Matt Smith's final episode with the BBC sci-fi drama - will air on Christmas Day at 7.30pm on BBC One.
The five new images feature Smith and companion actress Jenna Coleman, who plays Clara.
Coleman recently claimed that filming Smith's final scenes felt "brutal" and "traumatic".
"I knew it was going to be sad, but it was really traumatic," Coleman said. "It was very emotional and overwhelming."
'The Time of the Doctor' will also air on BBC America at 9/8c on Wednesday, December 25.

From the moment that Benicio del Toro (Sin City) and Edgar Ramirez (Elite Squad) were linked to the role of the villain in Star Trek Into Darkness, the fact that Chris Pine's Kirk would find himself up against his nemesis Khan Noonien Singh in the sequel to the 2009 reboot was perhaps the worst kept secret in Hollywood history. Sure, the casting of Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) as 'John Harrison', the continuous denials from the cast and crew, and Karl Urban namedropping Gary Mitchell might have had us questioning ourselves, but let's face it, was there a Star Trek fan out there who didn't think "I knew it!" when Cumberbatch dropped his "My name is Khan!" line?
Well, in an interview with MTV, director J.J. Abrams has admitted that he regrets the decision to keep Khan's identity a secret in the run up to the film's release: "The truth is, I »

With Sherlock series 3 set to begin on January 1st 2014, BBC Worldwide has something special up its sleeve for the disc release. Sherlock series 3 is arriving on DVD and Blu-ray on January 27th 2014, and is up for pre-order now. But it's also producing a very limited run of 3000 individually numbered fan boxsets, that we suspect are likely to be really rather popular.
In each box will be all three series of Sherlock on disc (DVD and Blu-ray versions are available), as you might expect. Then there's also a copy of an episode script from the first series, penned by Steven Moffat. You'll get a special letter from a "popular returning character", and a soft touch A6 size notebook.
Behind the scenes footage from Sherlock series 3 is also included, although we'd imagine that's on the regular disc release too. »
It may be a good Christmas for "Sherlock" fans. BBC One has confirmed that a special, bonus "mini-episode" of the Benedict Cumberbatch/Martin Freeman series will appear just in time for Christmas Day (Dec. 25).
"Many Happy Returns" will be a sort of prequel to the upcoming Season 3 of "Sherlock," giving a peek at the time after Holmes' presumed death at the end of Season 2. As reported by Hypable, the synopsis hints at a midseason timeline: "Sherlock has been gone for 2 years. But someone isn't quite convinced that he's dead."
Could that someone be Watson? Maybe Mycroft, with all his government connections, has picked up a hint of his brother? Or could it be someone on the edges of Sherlock's life, like Irene Adler, who has suspicions.
With the meager information we have on the episode, it's hard to even tell if either Cumberbatch or Freeman will even be in the installment. »
A mini-episode of Sherlock will be made available on Christmas Day.
Titled 'Many Happy Returns', the short episode will serve as a prequel to the show's third series, and will be available via the BBC's interactive Red Button service.
"Sherlock Holmes has been gone for two years. But someone isn't quite convinced that he's dead…" the synopsis for the episode reveals.
The episode will be available between December 25 and New Year's Day, when series three will debut on BBC One.
No casting details have yet been revealed for the episode, which will take place in the two-year gap between 'The Reichenbach Fall' and series three premiere 'The Empty Hearse'.
