Steven Moffat and Mark Gattis, writers of the BBC and PBS series, Sherlock, have done a remarkable job of transporting everything that we know and love about Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson from Victorian England to modern times. So it will surprise many fans that Sherlock returns for a special on New Year’s Day that is set in the very time frame that Moffat and Gattis tried so hard to avoid.

That’s right, on Friday night Holmes will appear prim and proper sporting a top hat and waistcoat. Dr. Watson will again by his side but with an added bowler hat and handlebar mustache. According to Moffat, Holmes will appear “a lot less brattish” than he is portrayed in the modern version and Dr. Watson will be “a bit more upright.” Since Sherlock is such a hit, why would the brains behind the show do this? Four words says it all: “Because we can,” says Moffat.
