TRENDING NOW:

Sherlock writer Mark Gatiss has let slip some new details about the opening instalment of the forthcoming third series, which will see the detective return from the dead after surviving a seemingly fatal fall from a hospital roof.

Episode one, The Empty Hearse, will involve scenes set on the London Underground rail system and is influenced by the recently rediscovered missing Doctor Who adventure The Web of Fear, says Gatiss.
