article image'Sherlock Lives' London stunt announces UK air date for Season 3

At long last the UK air date for Season 3 of "Sherlock" has been revealed, during a publicity stunt on the streets of London this morning.
During this morning's commuter rush hour, a black hearse was driven around London. Inside the vehicle could clearly be seen a coffin adorned with white flowers arranged to spell "Sherlock" and "01 01 14".
So, there you have it, episode 1 of the new season will be broadcast in the UK on New Year's Day. Titled, aptly enough, The Empty Hearse, the 90-minute film has been written by Mark Gatiss (An Adventure in Space and Time).
Digital Spy reports that the route the hearse took included visiting a number of the series' shooting locations, such as Baker Street, where Sherlock Holmes lives, North Gower Street and St Bart's Hospital, where the sleuth, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, fell to his death at the end of Season 2.
According to the Independent, The BBC has confirmed that episode two, The Sign of Three, by Stephen Thompson, will follow just four days later, Sunday, January 5, with episode three, His Last Vow, by Steven Moffat, one week later, on Sunday, January 12.
The US air date for the start of Season 3, which was revealed over a month ago, is set for Sunday, January 19, 2014.
Sherlock is a Hartswood Films production for the BBC and is executive-produced by Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss and Beryl Vertue.
