The whole world was more than a little excited to see Benedict Cumberbatch back treading the boards as he took on the iconic role of Hamlet earlier this month. The show, taking place at the iconic Barbican Theatre, was a sell out within minutes, breaking just about every record along the way, however, this version of the famous Shakespeare play was not met with great reviews. Plagued with mishaps and technical issues, even Benedict himself got frustrated with the less than amazing opening week
So far, there have not been many details emerging about this year’s highly-anticipated Sherlock Special, other than it is set in Victorian times and will not affect the following series. But now, show co-creator, Steven Moffat, has been giving us a few hints about what we can expect when our favourite crime-fighting duo return to our BBC screens later on this year. The fact that this one-off special is to be set in Victorian times was questionable right from the moment that it was announce
It is the moment that all Sherlock fans have been waiting for (well one of them anyway) – The first teaser trailer for the Victorian Special has now been released! As we have previously reported, this periodic delight is to be set in the original era of Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Doctor Watson, taking the show’s main stars straight out of their normal habitat of modern day London. Of course the two genius’ behind the modern day twist on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Steven Moff

Following the first glimpse of our heroes Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman posing in periodic attire as their iconic characters Sherlock and Watson (you know the one that caused all the fuss over that Photoshop booboo) the powers that be have released anoth
Sherlock stars confirmed for Comic Con & Oscar panels, but which one will Benedict Cumberbatch be on?
As excitement mounts ahead of next month’s San Diego Comic Con, the powers that be over at Sherlock have finally confirmed that they will be sending over a panel! The annual fan based convention has released its complete schedule for the 2015 SDCC and Sherlock’s team have been confirmed as making an appearance on Thursday July 9th.

Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is a daddy! What have he and Sophie Hunter called their Cumberbaby?
Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is today settling into what will surely be his most challenging role to date; being a daddy! He and wife Sophie Hunter welcomed their baby boy into the world yesterday, and the couple’s rep says that they are “delighted” with their no doubt gorgeous son. In a statement to the press, the couple’s spokesperson added, “We would kindly ask everyone to respect the family’s privacy during these next few precious weeks.” The couple wed earlier this year
One of this country’s biggest and most loved exports, Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch, is to be awarded a CBE from the Queen! This may seem like a natural progression to the star’s gazillions of fans out there, but the news that Her Majesty will honour the actor with the award, one below a knighthood, during her birthday honours this Saturday has caused a bit of controversy as it is never usually dished out to someone as young as our Benedict. The Queen must be a fan! The Sun newspaper re
Sherlock Spoilers: Have Irene Adler & Sherlock been seeing each other this whole time? Steven Moffat says….
Ever since Irene Adler made an appearance in the first episode of the second series of Sherlock, fans have been calling her for return with every new series that is announced. Of course, in the original books written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ms Adler, or ‘The Woman’ as she is affectionately known, only ever made that one appearance in A Scandal in Belgravia, so the chances were never likely, if the show was to follow the books to the letter. But now, Sherlock showrunner, Steven Mof
Sherlock Series 4 Spoilers: Film date, air date & more! Could Victorian Special be Doctor Who crossover?
With the filming date for the fourth series of Sherlock now confirmed, we thought that we would recap what we know so far, and explore the possibilities of what may be ahead… Almost as soon as the third series of the hit BBC detective series came to an end in January last year, we were eager for a release date for the fourth outing of our favourite drama, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as the iconic London crime-solving duo, Sherlock and Watson. The series was broug
When it was announced that this year’s one-off Sherlock Special would be set in the Victorian era, we were all more than a little bemused. Don’t get us wrong, we can thoroughly appreciate the quirkiness of taking the modern-day twist show back to its original roots, but did wonder just how on earth it would fit in to the hit BBC detective series we have all come to know and love. Well, the clue was probably in the title one-off, meaning that it didn’t necessarily have to fit in
Sherlock: Series 4 filming date confirmed as Benedict Cumberbatch gets snubbed at BAFTAs – See full winners list here!
It is the news that all Sherlock fans have been waiting for – Series 4 has been given a filming date! But don’t get too excited because, unlike many early reports had suggested, the new series won’t be being filmed this year, but spring 2016! Now we all know that the cast and crew have been filming for the one-off Sherlock Special, expected to be aired this Christmas, but we had all kind of hoped that filming for the fourth series would happen later this year with perhaps a vie
All you have to do is take one look at Sherlock star, Andrew Scott, and the fear of god is instantly upon you, even if you have never heard him mutter a word as Moriarty – the actor just has villain written all over him! This has been the case even before his days on Sherlock, as Scott has been explaining in a recent interview with Radio Times. According to the star, who is set to make a return to the hit BBC detective series when it airs its one-off Victorian Special later this year, he h
It is every little boys dream to play a Marvel comic hero, but not everyone is right for the part, as Benedict Cumberbatch has just discovered. The word superhero suggests a certain type of person – One who is tall, built like a brick outhouse with rippling muscles and pecks bursting through their very tight, Lycra costumes…… With not a deer stalker hat or a mac in sight! So of course when Sherlock star, Benedict Cumberbatch, accepted the role of Dr Strange for the new upcoming
Ever since Sherlock first hit our BBC screens five years ago, the detective series, and its two main stars, have become a global phenomenon. But with such popularity comes fame which in turn leads to demand, as Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, who play the crime fighting duo of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, have discovered. The pair now have diaries that are probably blocked out until 2080 at least, with more blockbuster films under their belts than they can shake a stick at. And i
We can’t wait for the new series of Doctor Who, and to raise the excitement levels through the roof, those lovely people over at BBC have revealed that we will be getting a new monster as part of the deal. Series nine of the hit BBC Family sci-fi series is already shaping up to be one to remember, with guest stars including Rufus Hound and Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams so far confirmed as joining The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman). Now the Daily Star newspaper has
