A contemporary take on the classic Arthur Conan Doyle stories, Sherlock
is a thrilling, funny, fast-paced adventure series set in present-day
Co-created by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Coupling) and Mark Gatiss, Sherlock stars BAFTA-nominee Benedict Cumberbatch as the new Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman (The Office, Love Actually), as his loyal friend, Doctor John Watson. Rupert Graves plays Inspector Lestrade.
The iconic details from Conan Doyle's original books remain - they live at the same address, have the same names and, somewhere out there, Moriarty is waiting for them. And so across three thrilling, scary, action-packed and highly entertaining television movies, Sherlock and John navigate a maze of cryptic clues and lethal killers to get at the truth.
From acclaimed Doctor Who scribes Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss comes Sherlock: a fresh reinterpretation of the classic mystery series, a faithful portrayal of the famous detective but now with a modern twist.
John Watson: doctor, soldier, war hero, lost soul. Fresh from fighting the war in Afghanistan, a chance encounter brings him into the world of Sherlock Holmes: loner, detective, genius. Sherlock can tell a software designer by his tie or an airline pilot by his thumb. He has a unique analytical brain unlike anyone else in the world, who earns his living and staves off boredom by solving crimes-the weirder and more baffling, the better. 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.
Across three thrilling, scary, action-packed and highly entertaining
television movies, Sherlock and John navigate a maze of cryptic clues
and lethal killers to get at the truth. The world's favorite detective
has come out of the fog.
With sparkling scripts and unforgettable performances from the two leads, this is Sherlock for a new generation.
