There’s a place that I know, it’s not pretty there 

and few have ever gone

If I show it to you now, 

Will it make you run away?

Or will you stay

Even if it hurts

Even if I try to push you out

Will you return?

And remind me who I really am

Please remind me who I really am

Everybody’s got a dark side

Do you love me?

Can you love mine?

But what if Sherrinford died in the Falklands, and Mummy blames herself for letting him go? Imagine if it happened when Sherlock was very young, and he doesn’t remember Sherrinford that well, but he remembers the last gift Sherrinford gave him… a puppy named Redbeard?

Maybe that’s why he was so traumatized by Redbeard’ s death, why he and My don’t get along, and why Mummy feels guilty?
Mark Gatiss: Sherlock goes back to 1895

Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock and Martin Freeman’s Watson will be visiting the year 1895 next.

“I can correct something that has been misreported,” said Gatiss. “The series is set in 1895, not 1885.”

When asked whether those 10 years makes a difference, Gatiss was emphatic that “it does, you wait and see, all the difference”.

After much speculation, the Sherlock special is confirmed to be a one off set in Victorian London. No broadcast date as of yet but the episode is expected to air around Christmas 2015.


“The special is its own thing. We wouldn’t have done the story we’re doing, and the way we’re doing it, if we didn’t have this special. It’s not part of the run of three episodes.

"So we had this to do it – as we could hardly conceal – it’s Victorian. Mark Gatiss and me, we wanted to do this, but it had to be a special, it had to be a separate entity on its own. It’s kind of in its own little bubble.” - Steven Moffat
