'Sherlock' is heading to cinemas. No, it's not a film version, sadly, but the next episode will be screened in cinemas in China later this year.
The next episode will be a special set in Victorian London. It'll be shown as part of a 'global cinema event' in a deal between BBC Worldwide and China's Shanghai Media Group.
'Sherlock' has serious worldwide appeal. The first three series have been licensed to 224 countries, which is more than any other programme. The BBC is understandably keen to cash in on this, especially since its previous international cash cow 'Top Gear' had to find a new set of presenters.
The fourth series of 'Sherlock' is expected to touch down in 2017. Here's a trailer for the Christmas special.
BBC Earth Films and Shanghai Media Group are also working on a feature film called 'Earth: One Amazing Day', which will tell the story of one day in the life of the planet. It will be produced by SMG Pictures, the film and TV production arm of Shanghai Media Group, and will directed by Peter Webber, who directed 'Girl With a Pearl Earring'.
