Sherlock meets baby Watson

We have to wait a bit longer to see what adventures await Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, played by Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, in the new season of "Sherlock." But that doesn't mean we can't try to find hints in the new images from the show released on Wednesday.

This photo shows Sherlock, Dr. Watson and Mary Morstan (Amanda Abbington) and gives a first look at baby Watson.

The new season starts January 1 on PBS and BBC On.

Dr. John Watson looks a bit older and wiser in this image. Here's hoping Sherlock cuts him some slack this season.

Don't mess with the Holmes brothers

If previous "Sherlock" seasons have taught us fans anything, it's never underestimate brothers Sherlock and Mycroft, played by Mark Gatiss. Both are clever, and eager to catch equally-cunning criminals.
