FIRST LOOK Sherlock (Series 4)

We’re now just over a week away from the first episode of the fourth series of Sherlock and the BBC have just released all of the series portraits!


Benedict Cumberbatch returns as Sherlock Holmes, with Martin Freeman as John Watson, Mark Gatiss as Mycroft, Rupert Graves as Inspector Lestrade, Una Stubbs as Mrs Hudson, Amanda Abbington as Mary Watson, Louise Brealey as Molly Hooper and Toby Jones joins as Culverton Smith.

What we know so far is that the series will be three parts; The Six Thatchers, The Lying Detective and The Final Problem.


In the first episode, Sherlock waits to see where Moriarty will make his posthumous move.

One mysterious case in particular baffles Scotland Yard, but Sherlock is more interested in a seemingly-trivial detail.


Why is someone destroying images of the late Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher? Is there a madman on the loose? Or is there a much darker purpose at work?
