‘Sherlock' Victorian Special Trailer Released

The long international nightmare will be over soon: new "Sherlock" is on the way and there's a trailer to prove it.

The special episode of the Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman series takes place in Victorian England–you know, back when the original Sherlock Holmes stories took place.

"The stage is set. The curtain rises. We are ready to begin," Cumberbatch's Sherlock Holmes says in the trailer above.

The sneak peek has everything: cool facial hair, Deerstalker cap, capes, horse-drawn carriages, dead bodies, pipes, eerie smoke-filled alleys and so much more good stuff.

"The name is Sherlock Holmes and the address is 221B Baker Street," Cumberbatch announces in character.

"You're Sherlock Holmes, wear the damn hat," Freeman's Watson tells homes – as if for all the fans across the world.

BBC and Masterpiece previously released a clip at Comic-Con, but this new trailer is sure to get you even more jazzed about the special.

"It's like we checked the books and discovered we'd set it in the wrong time period by mistake and it's like we're correcting it for 90 minutes," Steven Moffat, executive producer and co-creator, previously told BBC News. "We're really proud of it, we think it's a real cracker. But that'll be it until series four."

No premiere date was given, but expect the special around Christmas.
