Sherlock – Trailer For Next Episode Unveiled
Spoiler alert: how the super-sleuth faked his on-screen ‘death’ plunge…
Benedict Cumberbatch) roof-top death plunge was finally revealed in The Empty Hearse, the first episode of the new series last night.
And the explanation turned out to be quite elementary. Sherlock simply used a crash mat, a fake body and some fake blood to stage his own death and fool arch-enemy Moriarty.
As you might imagine, life is unlikely to be quiet for Holmes. At the end of last night’s show, a trailer for the next episode The Sign of Three was shown.
In it, Sherlock is shown being best man at Dr Watson's (Martin Freeman) wedding to Mary (Amanda Abbington).
Mycroft (Mark Gatiss) warns the partygoers that "something is going to happen", before Sherlock declares: "Let's play murder."
Watson, Mary and several wedding guests are then seen running around the venue, as it emerges someone is about to be bumped off.
The episode will be shown on BBC1 at 9pm on Sunday, 5 January.
Cumberbatch has spoken out in defence of the inclusion of a terrorist attack in the latest series.
