Series four of 'Sherlock' might be here sooner than we thought, with the news that shooting is due to next spring according to movers and shakers from the show.

Amanda Abbington – who plays Mary Morstan in the historical drama – and the show's creator Steven Moffat revealed the shooting date in a backstage interview at the 2015 British Academy Television Awards (BAFTAs), Radio Times reports.

They were at the ceremony to pick up the BAFTA Radio Times Audience Award.

Until the new series does land, in the meantime there's also a one-off 'Sherlock' special heading our way.

It's already been filmed, and will air either over Christmas or early next year.

In keeping with the original Sherlock Holmes books, the special is set in Victorian London rather than the contemporary London Moffat usually uses as his backdrop.

"We've got the Sherlock Holmes and Watson of the generation and we want to see them do that era just that once," Moffat said.

"Mark [Gatiss, the series co-creator] and me were giddy, running around shouting 'Look at that moustache!'"

"It was just lovely doing that period," Abbington added.

"I had some glorious things to wear and the boys looked great. Martin [Freeman, who plays Watson] looks very fine in Victorian garments!"
