The second episode’s title has been announced as The Sign of Three.

So I want to take a moment to remind everyone of one of the single most depressing bits in the entire canon, the final words of The Sign of Four:

"The division seems rather unfair," I remarked. "You have done all the work in this business. I get a wife out of it, Jones gets the credit, pray what remains for you?" 

"For me," said Sherlock Holmes, "there still remains the cocaine-bottle." And he stretched his long white hand up for it. 
Righto, carry on.

After the rooms at 221B Baker Street are set ablaze—and a mutilated corpse is discovered in the wreckage—Dr. John H. Watson is arrested and imprisoned at Coldbath Fields penitentiary. Writing from a cramped and dimly lit cell, Watson describes the mysterious events leading up to his arrest. Someone has been mailing him a series of cryptic warnings. His lifelong friend Sherlock Holmes has vanished in the raging waters of Reichenbach Falls. And Professor Moriarty’s criminal empire is expanding across Europe and throughout America.
 
In a desperate attempt to clear his good name, Watson has compiled twelve clues that may prove his innocence, including:
 
     •  The front page of a newspaper from Thousand Oaks, California
     •  A catalog of Victorian fashions and merchandise
     •  An empty matchbook containing cryptic handwritten notes
     •  The complete text of “The Final Problem,” Watson’s famous account of the death of Sherlock Holmes
     •  Plus a theater ticket, an arrest report, a railroad timetable, and more
 
All twelve clues have been painstakingly reproduced for this volume, along with the complete text of Watson’s manuscript and specially commissioned illustrations by Homes aficionado Clint Hansen. 

Just bought this. The reviews are mixed and I’m sure its canonically a bit rubbish… But COLOUR ME EXCITED!
