There’s been no shortage of Sherlock Holmes movies over the years, but flat-out comedies are rare. Step Brothers and Talladega Nights stars Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly reunite in what we hope will be a laugh-filled take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic mysteries.
Sherlock Holmes’ modern adventures continue, but things will take a considerably darker turn. At least one of the season’s stories will involve a battle of wits with the sneaky murderer Culverton Smith. And maybe Moriarty. Please Moriarty. The show returns in 2017.
When the Sherlock Holmes stories were first published, the detective’s address – 221B Baker Street, London – did not actually exist. But in 1930s, the street numbers were reallocated and the address fell to a bank, which was quickly inundated with fan mail. The Game was afoot.
