A new Sherlock episode could be on the way at Christmas 2015, according to Watson himself, Martin Freeman.
Speaking to The Telegraph, Freeman has hinted that a Christmas special is in the works.
"If that’s going to be a special, I’m speaking off-message here; if this was New Labour I’d get fired – I think that might be for next Christmas," said Freeman.
"A Christmas special. That’s what I understand."
All may be confirmed later today as the BBC prepares to make a Sherlock announcement at 2.21pm to tie in with the recent #221back Twitter handle.
The BBCOne Twitter feed recently posted a tweet reading ‘Did you miss me?’ #221back. #Sherlock,’ alongside a picture of Sherlock’s nemesis, Jim Moriarty.
