The BBC has released this photo as a teaser a year ahead of the broadcast it represents. That's Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as John Watson, the stars of the “Sherlock” series — but they're apparently in Victorian garb, not the modern clothes they've worn in nine-and-a-quarter episodes so far. Cosplay? Or a one-shot episode set in 1895 rather than the present, perhaps a “Blue Carbuncle” for Christmas 2015?
