“…it is rather fabulous.” The Guardian
“Flagrantly unfaithful to the original in some respects, Sherlock is wonderfully loyal to it in every way it matters” Independent
Sherlock Holmes was always a modern man – it’s the world that got old. Now he’s back as he should be: edgy, contemporary, difficult and dangerous, with award-winning Benedict Cumberbatch (Hawking, Small Island) as the eponymous hero, and Martin Freeman (The Office, The Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy) as Dr John Watson. Co-created by Steven Moffat (Jekyll, Doctor Who Series 5) and Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen, Doctor Who) Sherlock is a thrilling, funny, fast-paced take on the crime drama genre set in present day.
John Watson is a doctor, soldier, war hero and lost soul. Fresh from fighting the war in Afghanistan, a chance encounter brings him into the world of Sherlock Holmes - a loner, detective and genius… and John’s new flatmate. The two men couldn’t be more different, but Sherlock’s inspired leaps of intellect coupled with John’s pragmatism soon forge an unbreakable alliance.
This series of action-packed and highly entertaining television movies follows Sherlock and John as they navigate a maze of cryptic clues and lethal killers to get at the truth. The world’s favourite detective has come out of the fog. With sparkling scripts and unforgettable performances from the two leads, in these three thrilling and sinister stories, this is Sherlock for a new generation.
