New Year, New Sherlock! AXN spruces up the New Year for Sherlockians
Mumbai: So yes AXN is kicking 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 Jan 9th, 2016, or watch the repeat on 10th January 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”.
Rated 9.3 on IMDb, 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!
Here is a sneak peek:
Saurabh Yagnik, Executive Vice-President and Business Head, Sony PIX & AXN 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.

Tuning in to this two-hour special episode will definitely enthrall 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.”
