Ahead of the hugely-anticipated return of Sherlock, the BBC has released the first image of the new season. It's moody, reflective and very stylish, but before you check it out, here's the synopsis:

The question on everyone’s lips will finally be answered when Sherlock returns with three brand-new action-packed adventures. How did he do it? And how will John take the news that his best friend faked his own death? What will Sherlock think when he finds out John has fallen in love with Mary Morstan? She’s sensible, quick-witted and not at all taken in by Sherlock’s posturing. Once again, the game is on for Sherlock and John in the first episode of the new series, The Empty Hearse written by Mark Gatiss.

Now feast your eyes on the gloriously moody first image:

Sherlock returns Sunday, January 19th on PBS.
