In the last episode of Series 2 of Sherlock, we saw the man himself wince after being given a deerstalker hat as a gift.
However, as Benedict Cumberbatch films Series 3, it looks like the detective may have changed his mind about the iconic headgear.
The actor, 36, was spotted wearing a grey deerstalker as he filmed scenes with co-star Martin Freeman in London on Wednesday.
Sherlock, who faked his own death in the finale of Series 2, is seen emerging from a doorway to a crowd of paparazzi - presumably stunned to see the detective is alive.
As fans of the show will know, Sherlock wasn't too enamoured with the distinctive hat when he was given one on-screen.
In the Series 2 finale of the BBC show The Reichenbach Fall, Sherlock Holmes was presented with a deerstalker by DI Lestrade and his Scotland Yard colleagues as thank you gift for helping solve a case.
Among the new castmembers are Martin's real-life partner, Mr Selfridge actress Amanda Abbington. It has been rumoured Amanda will be playing Watson's love interest Mary Morstan, who the doctor goes on to marry.
In August, show creator Steven Moffat hinted at the forthcoming series: 'These three words might be a title, it might be a clue. They are Rat. Wedding. Bow.'
