sherlock bbcThe game is afoot once again as Steven Moffat’s Sherlock returns to TV screens on the 1st of January to get 2012 off to a cracking start.

Moffat and Mark Gatiss chose wisely with their two lead actors for the series which succeeded in bringing the famous detective up to date while retaining the distinct flavour of Conan Doyle.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have seen their careers take off in a big way with The Hobbit and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy alone and we are due three new episodes of Sherlock this year and this new trailer, all the way from the marbled halls of The Guardian, will suffice for the next nine or so days.
