Script reading commenced today with the BBC confirming that a special one off episode is set for 2015.
In a recent interview with the Radio Times, co-creator Mark Gatiss revealed that fans should expect tragedy, adventure and devastation in series four.
“It should be clear by now that while, of course, Doyle is our absolute god, we have gone quite a long way away as well – we’ve introduced Sherlock and Mycroft’s parents [for instance], I don’t think they’ve ever been seen in any adaptation – so there are lots of surprises to come,” said Gatiss.
Let the speculation commence!
