Sherlock - Series 2 - More Details on the Episodes

The contemporary version of the Arthur Conan Doyle classic, Sherlock – co-created by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Coupling) and Mark Gatiss (The League Of Gentlemen, Doctor Who, The First Men In The Moon) – caused a sensation last summer, delivering an audience of over 8 million viewers, who tuned in to watch Sherlock and John Watson navigate a maze of cryptic clues and lethal killers in three thrilling action-packed adventures.

Benedict Cumberbatch (War Horse, Frankenstein) stars as Sherlock and is joined by Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, The Office) as Dr John Watson, Rupert Graves (Case Sensitive, Garrow’s Law) as Inspector Lestrade and Una Stubbs (Worzel Gummidge, EastEnders) as Mrs Hudson.

Steven Moffat says: “The three stories will be called A Scandal In Belgravia, The Hounds Of Baskerville and The Reichenbach Fall.”
