The long awaited return of Sherlock will soon be upon us. The BBC bring in the New Year with The Six Thatchers, the first of three new feature length Sherlock adventures. The episode will premiere on Sunday 1 January, 2017 on BBC One at 8.30pm
In episode one of this new series, written by Mark Gatiss, Sherlock waits to see where Moriarty will make his posthumous move.
One mysterious case in particular baffles Scotland Yard – but Sherlock is more interested in a seemingly-trivial detail. Why is someone destroying images of the late Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher? Is there a madman on the loose? Or is there a much darker purpose at work? Something with its roots deep in Mary Watson’s past…
Benedict Cumberbatch returns as Sherlock Holmes, with Martin Freeman as John Watson, Mark Gatiss as Mycroft, Rupert Graves as Inspector Lestrade, Una Stubbs as Mrs Hudson, Amanda Abbington as Mary Watson and Louise Brealey as Molly Hooper.
Sherlock: The Six Thatchers airs on BBC One on Sunday 1 January, 2017 at 8.30pm to 10pm on BBC One
