Not much is known about the upcoming special, but it's reportedly set in 1895, and will perhaps be quite a change from the fast-paced setting used for previous Sherlock series.

The photo comes ahead of the Sherlock panel today at Comic-Con in San Diego. Co-creator Steven Moffat, producer Sue Vertue and actor Rupert Graves, who plays Sherlock's colleague DI Lestrade, will discuss the show.

Series three of Sherlock ended last year but the follow-up fourth series is due to return to screens in 2017.
