‘Sherlock’ season 3 ‘mini-episode’ previews Benedict Cumberbatch’s return as Sherlock Holmes

Just over a week away for UK fans, Sherlock creators have dropped a big teaser to keep fans excited about the upcoming third season.

Star Benedict Cumberbatch recently admitted his alter-ego has “regressed” when he returns and is struggling to adapt to life in London since his relationship with his friend and assistant Doctor John Watson (Martin Freeman) has changed.

He said: “I think he’s regressed … I think without Watson the stabilisers have come off the bike a little bit, or they’ve been put back on, I don’t quite know. He’s not in tune with London, he is not in tune with his natural habit and he’s nowhere near in tune with what it is to be a human being in society.

“Although he has been through a s**tload, as we discover. In his own way it’s cost him. It’s all about how Watson responds to this man coming back.”

Sherlock premieres in the U.K. on January 1st and in the U.S. on January 19th.
