The Christmas special, entitled "Sherlock: The Abominable Bride", was granted a Chinese release thanks to a series of cultural exchanges between China and Britain.

It's been reported that there is even an Easter Egg specially designed for Chinese viewers. However, according to audiences it's too subtle to get.

Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Hobbit star Martin Freeman, the movie grossed $4.6 million dollars in its first day and had nearly 25 percent of the Chinese market share.

The Chinese release of the 115-minute show is the most complete version among global releases, with 25 minutes in bonus scenes.
