About the Show

2012

Sherlock Holmes stalks again in a thrilling contemporary version of the Victorian-era whodunits based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Atonement, The Last Enemy) as the go-to consulting detective in 21st-century London, with Martin Freeman (The Office UK) as his loyal friend, Dr. John Watson, and Rupert Graves (The Forsyte Saga) as the long-suffering Detective Inspector Lestrade. Fast-paced, funny, and surreally true to the hero’s fantastic gifts for deduction, the series is co-created by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Coupling) and Mark Gatiss (Doctor Who, The League of Gentlemen).
