The Game is Afoot!
The third season of the hit Masterpiece Mystery! show Sherlock is almost here! The first of the three episodes – “The Empty Hearse” – will premiere at 10pm Sunday, Jan. 10, on ThinkTV16 and CET.
“The Empty Hearse” picks up two years after Sherlock’s supposed demise. Here’s the extended info from PBS: Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch, The Fifth Estate, Star Trek: Into Darkness) is not dead: this much we know. But how did he survive his leap off the roof of St. Bart’s Hospital? There are many theories, but none of them matter to John Watson, who is less concerned with how his friend survived than with why his friend didn’t let him know he was alive.
Sherlock returns to London with an assignment (stop an impending terrorist attack on the city) and a plan (restore the old Sherlock-John partnership). When he finds that his brother Mycroft’s warning that John has moved on with his life is true, will Sherlock have to accept a new reality and a new partner?
