Now the BBC has released the first trailer for the Sherlock Christmas special, which you can view below, where fans get to see Sherlock and Watson go about their detective business, and fans get to see Benedict Cumberbach in the more familiar garb associated with the famous detective, the deerstalker and pipe.

The new footage kicks off with Sherlock saying, “The stage is set, the curtain rises…we are ready to begin,” although the footage doesn’t really reveal what fans can expect from the Christmas special other than it will no doubt be one exciting episode.
