Benedict Cumberbatch (Small Island, Starter For Ten) and Martin Freeman (The Office, Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy) star in Sherlock, a thrilling, fast-paced update of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic detective, set in present-day London, for BBC One.
Sherlock is co-created by the hugely talented partnership of Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Coupling) and Mark Gatiss (The League Of Gentlemen, Crooked House, Doctor Who) and produced by Sue Vertue (Coupling, The Cup).
In this unique adaptation, the iconic details from Conan Doyle’s original books remain. They live at the same address, are only interested in the bizarre and, somewhere out there, Moriarty is waiting for them.
Sherlock also stars Rupert Graves (God On Trial, Midnight Man) as Detective Inspector Lestrade, Scotland Yard’s finest, largely because Sherlock allows him to take credit for his deductions, and Una Stubbs (EastEnders, The Catherine Tate Show) as Mrs Hudson, their long-suffering housekeeper.
