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, as award-winning actor Benedict Cumberbatch shows him in a new, contemporary light. Sherlock can tell a software designer by his tie, an airline pilot by his thumb. He has a unique analytical brain unlike anyone else in the world, who staves off boredom by solving crimes. When a chance encounter brings soldier John Watson into Sherlock's life, it's apparent the two men couldn't be more different, but Sherlock's intellect coupled with John's pragmatism, soon forge an unbreakable alliance. Across three thrilling, scary, action-packed and highly entertaining television movies, Sherlock and John navigate a maze of cryptic clues and lethal killers to get at the truth. With sparkling scripts and unforgettable performances from the two leads, this is Sherlock for a new generation.
