BBC also tweeted the cover of the script to promote the special, which will air during Christmastime of 2015.
In addition to the special, Sherlock will also be returning to series in 2016, and we can expect “tragedy.”You can always expect tragedy as well as adventure, that’s just how it goes,” co-creator Mark Gatiss said in an interview with RadioTimes.com.
