News & Interviews for Sherlock: The Abominable Bride (2015 Christmas Special)
Moffat and Gatiss just filmed 90 minutes of the internal monologue of a tortured queer genius drug addict... wrapped it up in a gothic mystery, and then gave it to us as a late Christmas present.
If anything, The Abominable Bride was a nice piece of fan fiction that used the "It was all a dream" convention to break from the canon a bit.
I'm not sure Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat quite pull off the ole old-timey-yet-contemporary Sherlock in this special episode but it's a glorious ride all the same.
Cumberbatch has taken the possession of his part so successfully that his upturned collar now feels as much a Holmesean signature as a deerstalker cap.
The Abominable Bride can be viewed as a little poetic. It may have thrown logic out the window but it never loses the essence.
No doubt about it, this was a bravura display from the writers and their leading men.
The Abominable Bride is a meticulously crafted, wonderfully atmospheric piece of filmmaking. It could well stand on its own, without the series' help or notoriety.
[The Abominable Bride] might have been better if its creators were more familiar with the common foibles of fanfic as a genre.
We watched all our favorite characters march around in stuffy suits/dresses to solve an unremarkable crime that doesn't have anything to do with the current story.
It contained everything that we love about Sherlock: all those cutting putdowns, all-round spot-on performances, cinematic camerawork, and Andrew Scott back as Moriarty.
In both the Victorian and contemporary settings, it's a delight to watch the easy chemistry between Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, while Andrew Scott's deranged Moriarty lights up his scenes with Sherlock.
Audience Reviews for Sherlock: The Abominable Bride (2015 Christmas Special)
Feb 22, 2021It wasn't as good as the first 3 seasons as I do.
Feb 22, 2021Aqui onde começou a dar errado a série, colocaram o Sherlock da época atual na época dos livros, foi até que legal mas o caso abordado nesse especial foi muito ruim, além e ficar alternando entre as épocas. Muito sem noção.
Jan 12, 2021Really enjoyed, a lot of fun
Dec 08, 2020Not as enjoyable as the rest of the show, but it was nice to see the modern Sherlock in the original period of the books. The transition was smooth, thought the transitionS between the two eras was quite annoying and unnecessary. It was nice to see more of Moriarty, of course.

May 15, 2019Decent, but lacks the mystery and charm of modern Sherlock.
Dec 21, 2018A fun way to do an extra episode and overall it's quite genius made. It's a little bit outside the rest of the series I think, because it's way different. But still very enjoyable.
Dec 20, 2018Loved it, really gave back the Sherlock feel to me I sort judged a book bye its cover with this episode but when I whatched it was so good loved every bit of it.
Aug 22, 2018Great for the season (Christmas special); nice to see the contemporary Sherlock in a different setting. Unexpected plot twists (as per usual) makes this special extra interesting and fun to watch.
Aug 03, 2018While the ratings suggest otherwise, this is one of the smartest and creepiest episodes yet.
