The BBC has confirmed that Sherlock series 3 will feature in the Radio Times Christmas issue, so that means a transmission date for the first episode, The Empty Hearse, between 21 December 2013 and 3 January 2014. Some speculation has New Year’s Day as the transmission date. Sherlock has traditionally broadcast on a Sunday so that gives 22 December and 29 December as possible transmission dates. Whatever the truth it means that #SherlockLives and within five weeks Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman’s Dr John Watson will be back on our screens.

The official synopsis for The Empty Hearse:
“Two years after the devastating effects of [Series 2’s finale] The Reichenbach Fall, Dr John Watson has got on with his life. New horizons, romance and a comforting domestic future beckon. But, with London under threat of a huge terrorist attack, Sherlock Holmes is about to rise from the grave with all the theatricality that comes so naturally to him. It’s what his best friend wanted more than anything, but for John Watson it might well be a case of ‘be careful what you wish for’! If Sherlock thinks everything will be just as he left it though, he’s in for a very big surprise…”
