Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are very busy actors these days. But worry not, Sherlock fans, the duo will be back to play Detective Holmes and his trusty sidekick, Dr. Watson. How do we know? Well, the BBC said “#notkidding,” and would they lie to you via hashtag? They wouldn’t dare. Eschewing their modernized coats and famous scarves, Freeman and Cumberbatch are kitted out in the traditional threads worn by Watson and Holmes in the original Sidney Paget drawings that accompanied Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s books. Well, at least Watson is. We see Sherlock still isn’t a fan of the deerstalker. Mary Watson is free to disagree, but I think John looks fetching in that mustache. I wouldn’t mind if he kept the bowler either.
Sherlock will return (#notkidding), but not until Christmas of 2015. Maybe this photo can tide you over until then?
