Take a better look at the Abominable Bride in new Sherlock Christmas trailer

The BBC has not been shy when it comes to teasing us about The Abominable Bride - the upcoming Christmas edition of Sherlock, which will see Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman reprise their roles as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in 1895 Victorian London. We now have another trailer for the special episode, and it gives us our best look yet at the foe Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's sleuths will be hunting.

Check it out below...

This latest trailer is decidedly spookier than what's come before, with the spotlight placed firmly on the mysterious Abominable Bride, glimpsed here wielding a shotgun. Looks like Holmes and Watson will have their work cut out for them...

The Sherlock Christmas special The Abominable Bride will air in the UK and US on New Year’s Day 2016, and will also be available to watch in theatres.
