This trailer for Sherlock’s fourth season managed to escape the closing maw of the San Diego Comic-Con on its final day. Sherlock himself might have wished it hadn’t, given that it shows his life going completely to pieces, new villain Toby Jones looking very pleased with himself, and lots of guns, helicopters, and…
We live in a time where it is easier than ever to complain about a plot development you don’t like. Writers, directors, creators—they’re all asked constantly about the deaths of their characters, but they all have their reasons. It’s just some are more acceptable than others.
The answer better be “No.” “No” is the only acceptable answer here. Because while the first Robert Downey Jr Sherlock Holmes was fine, the second was absolutely not, and I refuse to live in the world Joel Silver imagines where they go on forever.
Hey, remember how we told you the rather surprising news that basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar had written a novel about Sherlock Holmes’ brother Mycroft? Well, now he’s writing a comic about it. Featuring the sexiest Mycroft Holmes ever.
Reframing familiar literary characters is not a new idea; think The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Once Upon a Time, even Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. But Bill Condon’s Mr. Holmes, which stars Ian McKellen as an aging Sherlock, offers an unusually thoughtful take on the concept.
Shown: Martin Freeman and his awe-inspiring moustache, who will combine to reprise the role of Dr. Watson in the upcoming Sherlock Christmas special, which will be at least partially set in the London of the late 1800s. Also pictured: An unidentified gentleman, presumably of no importance.

You've seen the pictures of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman dressed as the 1800s version of Sherlock Homes and Dr. Watson from the upcoming Christmas special. But now showrunner Steven Moffat has confirmed that the special will take place entirely in the character's original era.
So Avengers: Age of Ultron isn't the only movie with an action-packed trailer out today! Mr. Holmes stars Sir Ian McKellen as the legendary detective in his twilight years; the scene where McKellen leaps out of an exploding airplane onto a moving motorcyle while shooting at Moriarty looks amazing!
A Sherlock Holmes short story, penned by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, was recently discovered in an attic. And has now the 111-year-old lost short has been transcribed for you to read. So put on your deerstalker, and enjoy.
Villains sure do like to be captured on purpose, don't they? We've seen it again and again as a trope, but it's not always a bad thing. Sometimes, it does show just how brilliant our bad guy is. And sometimes, it shows just how stupid our heroes are. Here are the best — and worst — times a villain got sent to the…
Masterpiece on PBS, basically printing its own currency after the success of Downton Abbey and Sherlock, will build off the success of the latter title by airing a three-part adaptation of Julian Barnes' historical novel Arthur & George later this year. Martin Clunes (Doc Martin) will star as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Most folks know him from his basketball career, but Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is also a best-selling author (an autobiography, several non-fiction tomes, and multiple books for kids), and an undercover airplane pilot (to cult-movie fans, anyway). And now, his first novel (with co-author Anna Waterhouse) stars Sherlock…

This 1927 interview with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is the only known interview with the Sherlock Holmes and Lost World author committed to film. Here, Doyle talks about why he created the world's greatest detective, the response from Sherlock Holmes fans, and his belief in the supernatural.
It's hard to imagine Sherlock Holmes giving up his flat. Who else but Mrs. Hudson would be willing to put up with the noise, tobacco smoke, violin music and the occasional evil nemesis dropping by? But, if it does go up for sale, someone has calculated the market price.
