Sporting a rugged beard, Cumberbatch certainly looks the part of the Sorcerer Supreme, and it’s given us a tiny idea of director Scott Derrickson’s aesthetic for the film.

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.
