Christmas has come early for Sherlock fans! The BBC just released a seven-minute prequel mini-episode of the cult-hit series that teases up season 3 (watch it below). The short is written by Sherlock producers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss and has Inspector Lestrade (Rupert Graves) debunking various rumored sightings of the great detective from around the world as well as visiting with Watson (Martin Freeman), who watches a video of the man himself (Benedict Cumberbatch). Sherlock returns to PBS Masterpiece on Jan. 19. Here’s the video:
