    A New Image Of The Next "Sherlock" Episode Has Been Released And It Looks Very Victorian

    And just look at Martin Freeman's moustache.

    An image of a forthcoming Sherlock episode, was released on the internet late last night.

    That's Martin Freeman as Dr Watson and Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock there, in case you haven't happened to watch any of the episodes so far.

    As reported by the BBC, it appears to be set in Victorian London. And look at Dr Watson's wonderful moustache! So majestic! So elegant!

    It's a lot more groomed compared to the last series (above right).

    There's not much detail about the new episode, but that might change. Executive producers Steven Moffat, Sue Vertue and actor Rupert Graves are due to appear on a panel to talk about the show at the San Diego Comic Con later today.

    Fans do seem to quite like the image.

    And this new image seems to be more successful than the first image of the show released online last year, which weirdly had Sherlock's shoulder missing.

    In an interview with BuzzFeed News last year Freeman commented on the gaff, saying “I know that presentation matters, that publicity matters, that it would be crazy to think that publicity doesn’t matter in 2014, it does. I think in the course of the last few years — in my experience anyway — just being in two things that are really internet frenzy projects, it’s gone from being Oh, this is quite fun to being like Oh, this is the most important thing in the world. And I don’t quite understand that.”

    BuzzFeed News can confirm that Sherlock Holmes does appear to have a shoulder in the next episode.
