'Sherlock' episode 'The Final Problem' is set to be screened in UK cinemas. 

The feature-length instalment, which is the third and final episode of season four, will be shown in 300 cinemas across the UK and Ireland for one night only in the new year.

The episode will air on BBC1 on Sunday January 15 while simultaneously screening in cinemas. Those swapping their TV for the big screen are promised 'exclusive content'.

'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,' said 'Sherlock' producer Sue Vertue, while Mat Way, BBC Worldwide's Commercial Director of Live Entertainment, added: 'The incredible filmic qualities of "Sherlock" make it perfect cinema viewing. We are delighted to be able to offer the UK and Irish fans the opportunity to enjoy the epic "Sherlock" finale on the big screen.'

This isn't the only 'Sherlock' story making headlines. Fans were treated to 40 seconds of brand new footage this weekend. The dark new teaser sees Sherlock battling his demons, facing up to his darkest secret as well as making a surprisingly emotional admission to an unknown person...

Meanwhile, the name of John and Mary's new arrival was revealed yesterday in The Telegraph. Eagle-eyed fans might have spotted the note, welcoming Rosamund Mary Watson to the world, among the birth announcements. 

Branches of Cineworld, Odeon, Picturehouse, Vue, Empire, Omniplex, Showcase and Everyman are screening the 'Sherlock' finale. Tickets will be available to book online. 

'Sherlock' series four starts on BBC1 on New Year's Day.
