Sherlock Holmes, Clinton, Gates on PBS


NEW YORK (AP) -- Good news for fans of Sherlock Holmes and "Downton Abbey": They're both coming back to PBS next year.

The public broadcasting service said Wednesday that both productions attracted some real fan interest for their first seasons.

PBS chief Paula Kerger says that was especially true of "Downton Abbey," which will be set in World War I. The first season ended abruptly for many fans without the knowledge that it would be back, triggering many angry phone calls.

"Abbey" will be back in January, and "Sherlock, Series 2" in May.

PBS early next year will also do a two-part examination of Bill Clinton's presidency and a series on American infrastructure hosted by a former "Survivor" contestant.
