Sherlock Holmes has been gone for two years. But someone isn’t quite convinced that he’s dead…”
So runs the brief but intriguing synopsis for Many Happy Returns, a mini episode of Sherlockset to become available via the BBC’s interactive Red Button service from Christmas Day.
No cast details have been revealed for the short prequel episode so we don’t know whetherSherlock himself, Benedict Cumberbatch, or his friend John, Martin Freeman, will appear but it sounds as if there are some die hard Sherlock fans out there who aren’t ready to give up on the detective even after all this time…
Many Happy Returns will be available to watch at various times between 25 of December and New Year’s Day, when Sherlock series three proper begins.
"I came across man-made bushes that were on the floor—is this ruining the film for you yet? So I come out: green fucking everywhere. The camera was not rotating around me; they were just rotating me around, and the camera stayed in the same place. And I was having to pretend that I was seeing a Lonely Mountain, which I wasn’t." (x)
