Sherlock, the BBC/PBS Masterpiece cult favorite, hit movie theaters for a limited two-night release---January 5 and 6---to promote the TV show's January premiere. The movie release is the show's Victorian-era special, Sherlock: The Abominable Bride.
Glenn's geek was on full throttle last night when he attended the first showing.
"The theater was packed. We sat in the fourth row," Glenn shared. "It was packed. And it was kind of cool. I mean, I thought I was the only nerd that watched this. And apparently not. And it was really good."
The episode takes Sherlock and the entire cast back to the 1800s. BBC Worldwide Executive V.P. Soumya Sriraman said, "I went cautiously into this Victorian [storyline], and I was wondering how it was going to all play out. I was like, 'Wow!'"
The theatrical version of the episode includes 20 minutes of additional footage, including a guided set tour of 221B Baker Street with executive producer Steven Moffat and a short behind-the-scenes with the shows stars, Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek: Into the Darkness) and Martin Freeman (The Hobbit).
