It is a problem as a result of it’s arduous to please Sherlock followers. Like everybody else, whereas rising up, I learn the Sherlock Holmes sequence on and off. I’m an enormous fan of the Benedict Cumberbatch sequence, however our present is just not a tackle it. What it makes an attempt is to deliver to the desk the identical authenticity and finesse of storytelling. As somebody who is aware of many Cumberb*tches, I hope we now have fared nicely,” the actor laughs.
