Here’s a smart new promo poster featuring the now-confirmed title and airdate:
Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy at last weekend’s MCM London Comic Con, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have revealed a squeak more information about the forthcoming Sherlock Christmas Special, The Abominable Bride, arriving on BBC One and in select cinemas around the UK on the 1st of January.
Gatiss confirmed that The Abominable Bride “is mostly an original story, inspired by a reference in one of the [Doyle] stories to one of the ones that Dr Watson never wrote about.” Steven Moffat continued, “There are loads and loads of details from the original stories, and there is a case referenced in the story about ‘Ricoletti with the club foot and his abominable wife’, so this is broadly speaking, that.”
The Doyle story in question is The Adventure Of The Musgrave Ritual, a tale of riddles, hidden treasure and death, and here’s the line to which Moffat refers, spoken by Sherlock Holmes, “Here’s the record of the Tarleton murders and the case of Vamberry, the wine merchant, and the adventure of the old Russian woman, and the singular affair of the aluminium crutch, as well as a full account of Ricoletti of the club foot and his abominable wife.”
“Proper Gothic horror” is Amanda Abbington’s description of the Special, with Gatiss calling it “a Christmas ghost story” and “the definition of a treat”.
