Get ready for Sherlock’s return with a new mini-episode: watch now

With Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes set to rise from the grave on New Year’s Day, the BBC has provided an additional treat for fans, with a brand new mini-episode available online.

Entitled Many Happy Returns , the seven-minute mini-episode was written by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, and whets the whistle for next week’s comeback perfectly.
