‘Sherlock’ one-off set to be ‘global cinema event’

While Sherlock-Nation still awaits the news regarding the actual date that the long-awaited one-special will transmit (it’s still listed as “soon-ish”), it appears that Planet Earth will have a number of options once we know. In addition to broadcast on PBS and BBC1, word comes from BBC Worldwide that Sherlock will become a ‘global cinema event’ with airings in cinemas around the world including China and a number of other countries in addition to those in the U.S. and the UK.
