Best Sunday Nights Ever

‘Sherlock’ Plus ‘Downton Abbey’ Equals the Best Sunday Nights Ever in 2014

Basically, we’re all counting down to the New Year not because we want to celebrate turning over a new calendar page or anything, but because crossing into 2014 means that two of the most (if not absolute most) highly anticipated pieces of British television will be just days away from airing. Megahits Downton Abbey and Sherlock are both set to return to US television screens this January, airing back-to-back on Sunday nights, and fans everywhere are basically beside themselves with excitement.

PBS has put together a special promo touting the fact that Sunday nights in January are about to become a Very Big Deal with the back-to-back airings of two of the networks biggest hits to date. The new spot features snippets from both shows – sadly, predominantly from earlier seasons – along a similar theme that looks to the future.

Watch the new double-feature promo for yourselves below – and start getting excited for Sunday nights!
