Check out the All-New ANTiFanboy Podcast
Back in 2006, a group of angry young comic book nerds started a podcast with the focus of highlighting which comics that released that week were the must-read books but as the show grew in popular, it expanded into a show about video games, movies, television, comics, and everything else in between. Just remember one thing: We don't talk. We argue!

Sherlock Is Going Back In Time For It’s Special

Some curious set photos of the BBC show Sherlock has gotten the fan base all sorts of confused. The photo showed them in old timey clothes and some fans were guessing that some timey wimey things were going on. Well it looks like series creator Steve Moffat has the answers.

“The special is its own thing,” Moffat told EW before attending a panel at the South by Southwest conference on Monday. “We wouldn’t have done the story we’re doing, and the way we’re doing it, if we didn’t have this special. It’s not part of the run of three episodes. So we had this to do it – as we could hardly conceal – it’s Victorian. [Co-creator Mark Gatiss] and me, we wanted to do this, but it had to be a special, it had to be separate entity on its own. It’s kind of in its own little bubble.”

So it looks like Moffat really wanted to get one era appropriate story under his belt. This is an interesting take as he is treating the episode as just a random almost unrelated episode. Moffat also stated that the special is pretty much finished but as of right now there is no air date set for BBC yet although most assume Christmas time…. Why so late? Because the British hate you.
