Sherlock Holmes is back! Dr. Watson’s Magnum P.I. mustache! New love interest! Mrs. Hudson screaming! This and many more moments worthy of any rabid “Sherlock” fan can be found in the new interactive trailer released by BBC.
Warning: Spoilers ahead, so if you’ve never watched “Sherlock” or are catching up (there are only three episodes a season) then stop reading.
The trailer shows what happens when Sherlock Holmes (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) returns two years after faking his own death. The faked death isn’t really a spoiler to fans considering Sherlock does in fact show up (unbeknownst to Dr. Watson, played by Martin Freeman) at the cemetery where he’s buried at the end of season 2’s sad ending.
But with Sherlock gone, his friends, family, and colleagues move on with their lives, leaving the the Great Detective a little miffed that life does go on without him.
The trailer includes Sherlock, Watson, Sherlock’s powerful brother Mycroft (Mark Gatiss — also the show’s co-creator), Detective Inspector Greg Lestrade (Rupert Graves), Anderson (Jonathan Aris), Mrs. Hudson (Una Stubbs), and everyone’s favorite pathology lab assistant Molly Hooper (Louise Brealey). We also see that Watson has a love interest with actor Freeman’s real-life partner Amanda Abbington.
