Sherlock: The Final Problem will screen in cinemas for one night only

The final episode of Sherlock's fourth series now has a title - and a nationwide release in cinemas.

The Final Problem (foreboding much?) will screen across the UK and Ireland for one night only on Sunday, January 15 at 9pm.

The screenings - at participating cinema chains including Cineworld, Odeon, Picture House, Vue, Empire, Omniplex, Showcase and Everyman - will coincide with the episode going out on BBC One.

There'll also be additional exclusive content only being shown in the more-than-300 venues taking part.

"Fans clearly enjoyed the opportunity of watching The Abominable Bride in cinemas last time," said Sherlock producer Sue Vertue. "So Hartswood Films are thrilled to be working with BBC Worldwide again to do the same for this series 4 finale."

Tickets for Sherlock: The Final Problem can be purchased online by visiting participating cinema chains' websites or at cinema box offices. So now you know.

How 'bout that title, though, huh? It does seem rather... well... final.

All this despite Benedict Cumberbatch insisting that the fourth series of Sherlock isn't definitely planned as the last.

"We love doing the show," he said in October. "All I'll say about it is that we're all very busy, we're all doing other things now and you'll have to see the fourth season to realise why, for now, it's not going to happen again at the same regularity that it has been happening."

But what does that mean? It's a brainteaser so befuddling, only Sherlock Holmes could unravel it...

Sherlock returns to BBC One on New Year's Day at 8.30pm.
