    We're One Step Closer To A U.K. Date For The Return Of "Sherlock"

    U.S. broadcaster PBS has announced when the show will be back over there. But there's still no word from the BBC.

    People in "the know" have suspected for a long time that Sherlock will return to UK screens on New Year's Day 2014.

    But now the plot has thickened.

    Well connected sources this week started announcing the speculation as fact.

    Sherlock Series 3 Ep 1 is set in November and will air on Jan 1, 2014.

    Which slightly goes against what Executive Producer Sue Vertue said back in August:

    Not sure where #Sherlock latest rumoured tx date of 01/14 has come from. Not from me as tx date is not yet confirmed.

    Which was not an official denial, just a statement that nothing was confirmed.

    Now, a US airdate of January 19 has been confirmed by PBS.

    Sherlock will air in the UK before it airs in America. However we won't be in a position to announce the date until later in the year

    Still waiting then, folks.
