Sherlock Series 1-4 & The Abominable Bride [Blu-ray] | 45-second unboxing

As Series 4 concludes, it’s fitting that fans of Sherlock get their hands on the complete box set, given that this may well be the last time we’ll ever see any new episodes (let’s hope not).

Enjoy the short video and expect more in the coming future, including reviews on each series and episode.

Bye!
