The roads we walk have demons hidden.
And yours have been waiting for a very long time.

And lo, it came to pass, that the great Sherlock machine whirred into life yesterday. It’s been a fantastically busy week for me this past seven days, so I’m behind on my reviews (Ängelby, The Missing). I’m doing a bit of catching up this morning, so I thought I’d put this out there: the first Sherlock trailer from series four, and a transmission date.


So that’s your lot for now: Sherlock looking dishevelled and a bit up against it, Toby Jones looking menacing, Mary Watson in some sort of North African undercover-looking mission and lots of things that refer to a bigger test than ever before.

The three-episode series will start on Wednesday 1st January, on BBC1.
