Update: Sunday 28 August 2010: UK TV network BBC has officially recommissioned Sherlock for a second series, says Jay Hunt, Controller of BBC "Sherlock was the hit of the Summer and I am delighted it will be returning to BBC One."

At the outset we had no inkling Sherlock would go to a second series, but it has and we have had to do a bit of housekeeping with the pages herein

We gave the first series.


A thrilling and funny Sherlock Holmes effort ordered by BBC Drama to air in 2010, the 3 x 90 minute episodes has a stella cast including  Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes, Martin Freeman as John Watson, Una Stubbsas Mrs Hudson, Rupert Graves as Inspector Lestrade, Louise Brealey as Molly Hooperand Vinette Robinson and Sergeant Sally Donovan.

Co-creator Steven Moffat says: "Conan Doyle's stories were never about frock coats and gas light; they're about brilliant detection, dreadful villains and blood-curdling crimes, and frankly, to hell with the crinoline. Other detectives have cases, Sherlock Holmes has adventures, and that's what matters."

The iconic details from Conan Doyle's original books remain, they live at the same address of 221b Baker Street, have the same names and, somewhere out there, Moriarty is waiting for them.

Across three thrilling, scary, action-packed and hugely entertaining episodes, Sherlock and John navigate a maze of cryptic clues and lethal killers to get at the truth.

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.

Friday 12 March 2010: BBC advise that the Nine Network will air Sherlock in Australia in 2010 after a deal was done with BBC Worldwide Australia.
