Sherlock fans rejoice, for we have a premiere date for series three. The BBC sent a hearse around London today displaying the hashtag “SherlockLives” and the date. Finally. Set your alarms for January 1, 2014, as that appears to be when the detective returns.
Here’s a picture of the hearse that was driving around London this morning:
And for some added confirmation, here’s Mark Gatiss’ tweet:
Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective. Much missed by friends & family. In *living* memory. Jan 1st 2014! #SherlockLives
