This May, it’s time to take a trip through the looking glass… back to Wonderland (sorry, Underland) to see all the characters that we know and love. In the follow-up to 2010’s Alice in Wonderland, Mia Wasikowska returns as Alice, along with Anne Hathaway (the White Queen), Helena Bonham Carter (The Red Queen), Alan Rickman in his final role (the Caterpillar), and of course, the inimitable Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter.
In honor of Burton’s second outing with Carroll’s classic stories, we’ve rounded up some of the best Alice in Wonderland inspired tea-sets. Have your own tea party with a few “mad” friends, or turn things upside down and drink whiskey in a teacup while you re-watch the first film ahead of the sequel.

A week later, Sherlock fans get a new episode as well (after a two-year wait!), as John and Sherlock find themselves in 1890’s London for a Victorian holiday special airing on January 1st.
With these two incredible specials on the horizon, what’s a fan to do? Gather all your nerdy friends and celebrate amazing British television with a WhoLock Holiday party… or two! Here's how:
