How To Watch 'Sherlock: The Abominable Bride' & Relive The Emmy-Nominated Masterpiece


With the 2016 Emmys fast approaching, it's the perfect time to catch up on all of the amazing shows that are nominated. Even though Season 4 of Sherlock hasn't aired yet, the series has managed to score six nominations for its special Sherlock: The Abominable Bride , which aired on PBS and BBC One in January. With Benedict Cumberbatch nominated in the Outstanding Actor in a Limited Series or Movie category, it would be a good idea to watch the special immediately, to fully appreciate his... acting. Here are some of the ways you can watch Sherlock: The Abominable Bride before Sunday's Emmy ceremony.

Amazon has several options for watching Sherlock: The Abominable Bride. If you're a committed fan, you can purchase the special on DVD for $14.96 or Blu-ray for $16.99, and stroke the case while you watch it. You can also stream it on Amazon. It's not currently included in Prime membership, and costs $14.99, but includes some bonus features, so, if it's extra time with Cumberbatch you're after, this might be the option for you. The special is also available to buy on iTunes for $14.99.

Back in 2014, Cumberbatch won the Outstanding Actor in a Limited Series or Movie trophy, so it's entirely possible he could win the award again this year. The special is also up for Outstanding Television Movie, so it's worth investing some time in watching it ahead of the ceremony. One of the reasons the special is so interesting is that it's set in the 19th century, instead of modern day, meaning that Cumberbatch had the chance to embrace a more classic version of Sherlock Holmes. The highly anticipated episode has fans understandably excited for the forthcoming season, and it wouldn't be a surprise if the special took home several awards on Emmy night.

Despite some tough competition at the Emmys 2016, Sherlock: The Abominable Bride is such an innovative special episode of the show that it's sure to have made an impact on voters. Cumberbatch's performance is intense as always. Whether it's Emmys season or not, you should always put aside the time to watch anything he's ever been in.
