Martin Freeman has blasted Twitter users who trolled his other half Amanda Abbington after she joined the third series of Sherlock.

Abbington will be playing Mary Morstan in the new series, who ends up marrying John Watson – played by Freeman.

In an interview with Time Out, the actor slammed people tweeting negative comments to his partner as ‘ridiculous’.

‘To me, they’re not fans of the show – they’re fans of a show going on their heads’ he said.

‘Obviously I love Amanda and I want everyone to react positively to her; she plays a fantastic character and brings a hell of a lot to the third series.’

A new series three trailer for Sherlock aired after Strictly Come Dancing’s results show.

Ramping up the excitement ahead of the drama’s return on New Year’s Day, the clip gives a hint of Sherlock reunion with his BFF John Watson.

‘I don’t care how you faked it, I just want to know why’ John says during the opening few seconds.

We also get glimpses of Molly, Lestrade, Mrs Hudson and Sherlock’s brother Mycroft, played by Mark Gatiss who co-writes the show with Steven Moffat.

Sherlock also seems to be raring to go on his first case as he declared he needs to ‘get to know London again. Breathe it in. Every quiver of its beating heart.’

ITV has released a batch of new images from the Downton Abbey Christmas special, dropping further hints as to what the festive episode will bring.

We already know that the episode will centre on Lady Rose’s coming out at Buckingham Palace, with Lady Cora’s brother and mother (played by Paul Giamatti and Shirley MacLaine) travelling to London for the occasion.

This year’s festive episode rejoins the Crawley family and their servants six months on from the end of series four and there’s not a pair of mittens in sight.

The two-hour special sees the lot of them up head to their previously unseen London residence, Grantham House, as they prepare to present Rose to the king and queen at Buckingham Palace as part of her ‘coming out’.
