Vertue added that the new episodes will then debut on UK television in the latter half of 2013, with August earmarked as a possible air date.

Sherlock co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss also revealed three teaser words for the new trilogy of episodes - 'Rat', 'Wedding' and 'Bow'.

Meanwhile, Andrew Scott - who was also in attendance at the show's panel - refused to confirm if he would reprise his role as the villainous Moriarty.

"Moriarty is dead," he replied with a smile, when asked if his character could return.
