As ever after each season of Sherlock, the question fans are left grappling with is this - will the 'hat detective' return for another?

The adventures. Thank you for joining us for #Sherlock." Fans are tweeting about the surprise twists revealed about the Holmes family - there are spoilers ahead so some of you might want to stop reading now. Sherlock, which transplants Arthur Conan Doyle's detective to modern London, stars Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role and Martin Freeman as John Watson.
