At long last, the weekend saw Sherlock confirming that Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman would hit the Victoria era in early January, but there’s even better news than a new trailer. The BBC has confirmed that Sherlock will follow Doctor Who by heading into theaters, so when can we check out Sherlock: The Abominable Bride?

Up until now, Sherlock creator Steven Moffat has been reluctant to label the impending Victorian episode as a “Christmas Special,” and we now know why. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman will return in January of 2016, as confirmed by a new trailer and photos from Sherlock: The Abominable Bride.
Before Broad City captured the hearts of America’s #millennials with its down-to-earth depiction of two galpals’ riotous (and frequently drug-fueled) misadventures in New York, the BBC’s Absolutely Fabulous blazed a trail with a different, slightly more reprehensible pair of besties. Known by true fans as Ab Fab, the sitcom dared to submit a pair of pill-popping, nip-slugging, freely vindictive and unrestrainedly malicious adult women as comic heroines. The crazy part was that it worked: the show amassed a considerable cult following during its original run in the early ‘90s, returned for a six-episode stint in 2001 and then eight more in 2003, a handful of specials, and a four-episode revival series in 2012. Undeniably evidencing the enduring need for deliciously bitchy one-liners, Ab Fab has been resurrected for one more go, this time on the silver screen.
Yesterday, we caught wind that Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s upcoming Sherlock special would finally deliver a full trailer, and deliver it has. Sherlock and Watson at last return to the Victorian era, but when can we expect them to return to TV screens? The mystery deepens …
The ever-crowded schedules of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman make it all-but-impossible to determine when Sherlock Season 4 will finally deduce a start date, but the series’ upcoming Victorian special at least steps further into the light. Check out a new teaser, with the promise of more to come later this week!
Now that Doctor Who companion Jenna Coleman has confirmed her exit after the current ninth season, talk naturally turns to the future of the series, and franchise at large. That talk now turns to spinoff, as The BBC has confirmed a new young adult Doctor Who series titled Class to arrive in 2016.
Tatiana Maslany may not have gotten the Emmy win for Orphan Black, but Season 4 will put her right back to work with a “horrifying new direction” to chart. Production has officially begun, and a new synopsis promises to revisit Orphan Black‘s oldest mystery.
Half the tenure of Doctor Who stars goes to fending off rumors of their potential exit, but Jenna Coleman seems at last to be living up to the hype. Following this week’s rumors, The BBC has officially confirmed that Coleman’s current Doctor Who companion Clara Oswald will leave the series behind in Season 9. Let the new speculation wheel commence!
The nature of British TV and Doctor Who itself seems to breed rumors of star exits as soon as they’re cast, and Jenna Coleman in particular has been dogged repeatedly by reports of leaving. Here we go again, as a (slightly) credible report claims Clara and The Doctor will be no more after Season 9.
We’ve seen Doctor Who everywhere this week, and rightly so with Saturday’s Season 9 premiere “The Magician’s Apprentice,” so why stop now? Peter Capaldi looks cool as ever rocking shades and a guitar in 20 new photos from the premiere, and Clara has a surprising new friend.
