November sure is proving to be a busy month, as more fandom news comes along the way.
On Monday, November 4th, the official BBCOne twitter posted a teaser image from the third series of Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.

The first episode of the third series is called “The Empty Hearse,” and will answer the biggest mystery of the series so far: How did Sherlock survive his fall?
There is no official air date from the BBC just yet, but it has been announced that there will be a special screening at the British Film Institute Southbank in London, on December 15. PBS has also announced that the series will air on January 19, 2014, at 10 pm.
Fans have been waiting for about a year now, since the series’ finale in early 2012, and are still waiting for the BBC’s official air date. Looks like the three years that John Watson has canonically waited for are turning into the fandom’s waiting years…let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.
