MUMBAI: AXN is starting off 2016 with a special treat for Sherlockians in India. Catch the premiere of the much-awaited special episode from BBC series, Sherlock, entitled, Sherlock: The Abominable Bride, on 9 January, 2016, and watch the repeat on 10 January 2016 at 12 noon only on AXN.

Set in the Victorian London of 1895, this special episode will witness Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in a different era. The world’s most famous detective-duo find themselves amidst a Baker Street of steam trains, hansom cabs and top hats. But some things remain reassuringly the same, such as their friendship, the adventure, the murder... and the dialogue, “The Name is Sherlock Holmes and the address is 221 Baker Street”.

Talking about the premiere of the special episode, Sony PIX & AXN India executive vice-president and business head Saurabh Yagnik says, “Sherlock is an icon worldwide, and AXN is the home to Sherlock in India. The fans here have waited two-long years to see the new episode of this cult show, and we are very excited to be premiering it. In Sherlock: The Abominable Bride, viewers will witness a very different, Victorian version of the contemporary Sherlock. Tuning in to this two-hour special episode will definitely enthral the viewers as they are taken into a different era of mystery and crime-solving. We expect to delight our viewers with this offering because they know, if it’s Sherlock, it has to be on AXN.”

The Sherlock series is written and created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, and inspired by the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Before the production of Season 4 kicks off later this year, this special episode will be a treat to the Sherlock fans in India, who can now catch the premiere exclusively on AXN!

Sherlock has become a global phenomenon that we at BBC worldwide are extremely proud of.  AXN India has been a valued partner for Sherlock for the past three seasons and we are very happy to work with them again for Sherlock: The Abominable Bride. We are confident that this special episode will captivate Sherlock fans in India”, adds BBC Worldwide India SVP & GM Myleeta Aga.
