"We're ready to unleash the most shocking and surprising series of Sherlock yet," BBC One posted on Twitter yesterday. "The only thing is to expect is the unexpected."

"Of course, it's far too early to say what's coming, but we're reasonably confident that the very next thing to happen to Sherlock and John, is the very last thing you'd expect..."
