1. A New Setting
2. A Familiar Cast
Despite the new setting, the familiar cast that fans know and love will be returning. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman return as Holmes and Watson. Other members of the cast such as Amanda Abbignton, Rupert Graves, and Una Stubbs appear as 19th-century versions of their characters, too!
3. “A Christmas Horror Story”
Show creator Steven Moffat has described the special as a “true Christmas Horror Story” as well as a proper Gothic mystery. This kind of atmosphere works perfectly for a classic Sherlock Holmes story, and fans have already noted heavy inspiration from the well-known novel “The Hound of the Baskervilles”.
4. You can see it in theaters for the first time.
For the first time since the series’ beginning, the special will be aired in theaters both in the United Kingdom and the U.S. The special two-day theatrical run will include 20 extra minutes of footage, including a “making-of” short with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
