‘Sherlock’ Series 3: Special Edition DVD/Blu-ray and gift set announced

Posted Filed under

A new Special Edition of Sherlock‘s third series will be released on DVD and Blu-ray later this year, featuring new unseen footage.

Released on Monday 3 November by BBC Worldwide, the new set includes the original bonus features along with exclusive special content, including brand new commentaries and never-seen-before outtakes, as well as a previously unreleased deleted scene (perhaps the cut gay club scene from ‘The Sign of Three’?) and documentaries.

> Order the Special Edition on Amazon.

Here are full details of the new bonus materials:

– Outtakes from Series 2 and Series 3

– An exclusive deleted scene from Series 3

– Audio commentary with Una Stubbs, Steven Moffat, Sue Vertue and Mark Gatiss

– Three 45-minute documentaries, as seen on PBS in the USA, with behind-the-scenes footage

– 60-minute Unlocking Sherlock documentary

– ‘Many Happy Returns’ mini-episode

A 14-disc limited edition gift set is also being released in the US on Tuesday 4 November, priced  $197.50, featuring limited edition collectible busts of Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and John Watson (Martin Freeman), and limited edition collectible art cards.

A UK release for the gift set has not yet been confirmed.


Sherlock will return for a one-off Christmas special in 2015, followed by a series of three new episodes in 2016.

Speaking backstage at the Emmy Awards last week, Moffat teased: “We have a plan to top [Series 3] — and actually I do think our plan is devastating.”
