Filming on Benedict Cumberbatch's hit British TV show Sherlock has been postponed due to the London riots.
Gangs of unruly thugs began causing chaos in the U.K. capital over the weekend (06-07Aug11), smashing shop windows and setting buildings on fire.
The disturbances across London have now forced TV bosses to abandon plans to shoot scenes for the upcoming second series of Sherlock, starring Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
In a post on his Twitter.com page on Tuesday (09Aug11), Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss writes, "This is a new one on me. Scene incomplete owing to approaching looters. Unbelievable times."
