“Sherlock” Returns for Season 2
In three thrilling new episodes, consulting detective Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch, The Last Enemy, War Horse) teams up with former army doctor and beleaguered friend John Watson (Martin Freeman, The Hobbit, The Office UK) to solve a dizzying array of crimes with his signature deductive reasoning and his stunning lack of social grace. From Belgravia mansions to windswept moors, the dynamic, if dysfunctional duo battles diabolical — and greatly-anticipated — villains, including a computer-savvy arch-villain who wants to rule the world and a hound from the hinges of Hell.
Co-created by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Coupling) and Mark Gatiss (Doctor Who, The League of Gentlemen), season 2 of Sherlock also stars Lara Pulver (True Blood), Russell Tovey (Little Dorrit) and Andrew Scott (Lennon Naked).
