Sherlock, series 3, Wed 1 Dec


Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are back as Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson in the hugely anticipated third series of Sherlock.

We've had a fair old wait to find out exactly how Sherlock faked his own death at the end of the second series, and we'll finally find out in the first of the three films: The Empty Hearse.

The action picks up two years after the last episode and Dr Watson is trying to get on with his life. He's engaged and looking forward to a future filled with domestic bliss.

But London's under threat of a huge terrorist attack and Sherlock is about to rise from the grave with typical theatricality. It's what Watson wanted more than anything – but will he be pleased to see his friend when it actually happens?

Sherlock, BBC1, 9pm
