I am late to the party, yes, but today, the minisode of BBC’s Sherlock, aptly named Many Happy Returns, was released (through the BBC’s ‘red button’ first, then online on YouTube). It’s a prequel to the first episode of series 3, The Empty Hearse.
It’s 7 minutes long, and has a corresponding blog post from John Watson’s official blog, which can be found here.
It doesn’t feature big spoilers from the series, apart from confirming the fact that Sherlock IS indeed alive. I’m pretty sure there would be gifs of this minisode everywhere now, especially on tumblr (they work fast. Faster thank you think.). I just need a gif of Lestrade doing a headdesk. Don’t know what I’m talking about?
