'Sherlock' stars Benedict Cumberbatch.

A new trailer gives fans another glimpse into the third season of the BBC series “Sherlock.” 

“Sherlock,” which premiered in 2010, stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective and “The Hobbit” actor Martin Freeman as Sherlock’s sidekick John Watson.

At the end of the second season, Sherlock Holmes was presumed dead after appearing to commit suicide. However, it appears that is not the case. (The storyline is based on Doyle’s short story “The Final Problem,” in which Sherlock appeared to have died after falling from a ledge while struggling with his enemy James Moriarty.)

The new, short preview begins with Sherlock’s gravestone and shows Freeman, now with a mustache, and the back of Cumberbatch’s head as he enters a building. The phones belonging to several people in a room then all ring simultaneously and the screen fills with Twitter hashtags such as “#SherlockLives.”

Check out the full trailer.

“Sherlock” returns on PBS in the US on Jan. 19.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
