In the BBC's thrilling, funny and contemporary twist on the classic Holmes adventures, Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his friend, Dr. John Watson (Martin Freeman), reside at 221B Baker Street, where Holmes earns his living and fights boredom by solving crimes-the weirder, the better. Sparkling scripts and exciting performances keep you guessing in three action- packed television movies.

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).
