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 as the eponymous hero. Co-created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, Sherlock is a thrilling, funny, fast-paced take on the crime drama genre set in present day. Containing three thrilling and sinister stories, Sherlock is available on DVD and Blu-ray from 30th September 2010 from 2entertain.
John Watson (Martin Freeman): 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.
A woman in pink lies murdered in an abandoned house, the fifth victim of a seemingly motiveless killer. Inspector Lestrade (Rupert Graves) is the best Scotland Yard has got, but he knows he's nothing compared to a young man called Sherlock. Sherlock can tell a software designer by his tie, an airline pilot by his thumb and 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.
The series continues as mysterious ciphers start appearing on walls all over London and anyone who sees them is dead within hours. From the glittering financial hub of the City to the heart of a travelling Chinese circus, Sherlock and John must decode the deadly symbols before anyone else falls victim to the mysterious Black Lotus...
The series finale sees Sherlock despairing of the ingenuity of London's criminals, as he is invited to take on what looks to be a very ordinary case. A young civil servant found on a railway line with his head smashed in. Open and shut, or so he thinks... The curtain is about to rise on a terrifying game of cat and mouse as a crazed bomber pits his wits against Sherlock's. A twenty year old murder; a blood-soaked car; a rediscovered Old Master worth millions - it's just the kind of adventure Sherlock and John relish, but who is the behind these deadly puzzles? London is set to become a battle-ground as Sherlock confronts the one person capable of beating him...
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, this is Sherlock for a new generation.
