Fans of Sherlock will be able to view the final episode of the British show's fourth series on the big screen as it will be broadcast at cinemas across the UK on its air date.

A one-night screening of the episode The Final Problem will be shown in more than 300 cinemas in the UK and Ireland with participating chains including Vue, Empire, Cineworld and Odeon.

The "dramatic" episode will air on January 15, with the broadcast time yet to be announced.

Viewers who manage to get a ticket will be treated to content exclusive to cinemas.

On January 1 this year, a one-off episode of Sherlock - The Abominable Bride - was screened in more than 100 cinemas as well as on television.

Sherlock producer Sue Vertue said the decision was based on the reaction to previous screening.

"Fans clearly enjoyed the opportunity of watching The Abominable Bride in cinemas last time so Hartswood Films are thrilled to be working with BBC Worldwide again to do the same for this series four finale," she said.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman will be back in their roles as Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson respectively when the new series arrives on TV screens in the new year.
