Benedict Cumberbatch thought BBC ‘mad’ to go back to Victorian era


new-sherlock-pictureIt’s not long now until Sherlock is back on our screens, and in the lead-up to the new New Year’s Day special there was much discussion about why Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss decided to go back to the Victorian/Edwardian era for the one-off. Apart from why not? the cast has spoken in a series of electronic press pack interviews and attempt to answer this question. Benedict Cumberbatch, for one, thought they were mad. Initially. The full videos are after the jump…

Lest we forget, this is what The Abominable Bride will be about:

Why is Thomas Ricoletti a little surprised to see his wife dressed in her old wedding gown? Because, just a few hours before, she took her own life… Mrs Ricoletti’s ghost now appears to be prowling the streets with an unslakeable thirst for revenge. From fog-shrouded Limehouse to the bowels of a ruined church, Holmes, Watson and their friends must use all their cunning to combat an enemy seemingly from beyond the grave and the final, shocking truth about…the Abominable Bride!

Here’s the latest trailer:
