Sherlock Mini Episode: Only Lies Have Detail…

by at . Comments

In anticipation of Sherlock Season 3, BBC has released a seven-minute online episode of this beloved drama that's titled "Many Happy Returns" and which gives us a look at the two years between the Season 2 finale and Sherlock's third season return.

It features a man called Anderson tracking Sherlock's progress, while Lestrade remains skeptical about whether or not Holmes is still alive.

As for what Sherlock has been up to since he appeared to leap from that building rooftop? As for a video message John receives that will likely leave viewers crying?

Sit back and view the installment now:

Sherlock returns with new episodes on PBS on Sunday, January 19.

In the meantime, you can watch Sherlock online in order to catch up.
