'Sherlock' season 4 first photo: It's Benedict Cumberpooch

Posted on


The first photo of Sherlock season 4 shows Benedict Cumberbatch and a hound. This immediately makes us want more. Can there be a Cumberbatch-with-dogs wall calendar please? Photos of the Sherlock star with various mutts and breeds solving crimes for every month of the year?

Plus, we now have so many questions: What’s Sherlock telling the dog to do? How involved will the dog be in season 4? Is Watson jealous? The master detective apparently had a dog named Toby in the books. Is this Toby? He/she looks like a Toby.

The image comes on the heels of Cumberbatch receiving an Emmy nomination for Sherlock: The Abominable Bride. Season 4 will be released in 2017. Don’t make us beg for more, Sherlock, we can’t muzzle our anticipation.
