'The Final Problem': Sherlock Season Four Finale Explains The Mysterious Sherrinford [Spoilers]


Benedict Cumberbatch Martin Freeman Mark Gatiss

The question all along, it seems, was not ''who' is Sherrinford?', but rather ''what' is Sherrinford?'. The season four finale of 'Sherlock' entitled 'The Final Problem' was rife with plot twists and a story much darker than any previous episode. Plus, the return of Jim Moriarty - sort of. Warning: Spoilers ahead.

SherlockBenedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman take on their final challenge of Sherlock season 4

As it's revealed that Watson (Martin Freeman) was not, in fact, shot in the head with a bullet but with a tranquiliser at the end of 'The Lying Detective', Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Dr. Watson confront Mycroft (Mark Gatiss) about the so-called Holmes sister Eurus (Sian Brooke), who Sherlock has no memory of. Mycroft eventually explains how she was their psychotic younger sibling whose genius far exceeded each of theirs. She was sent away at a young age after apparently killing Sherlock's dog Redbeard and is now held at a high security institution in the middle of the ocean called Sherrinford.

Mark Gatiss

‘Sherlock’ co-creator and star Mark Gatiss has responded in style to a newspaper critic who had accused the show of turning Benedict Cumberbatch’s character into ‘Sherlock Bond’, penning a short verse defending the direction they had chosen.

'Sherlock' Creators Tease Fans Over Future Of The Series


Benedict Cumberbatch Mark Gatiss Martin Freeman

‘Sherlock’ returns for a full series for the first time in nearly three years on New Year’s Day – but the growing Hollywood success of its chief stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman means that the new fourth series could be the last.

That is, at least, according to the BBC One drama’s co-creator Mark Gatiss, who told reporters at a recent screening that while everybody involved was enthusiastic to make more episodes, the increasing difficulty of getting them in the same place at the same time was placing the future of ‘Sherlock’ in jeopardy.

Benedict Cumberbatch Mark Gatiss Martin Freeman

‘Sherlock’ writer and co-creator Mark Gatiss has revealed that Benedict Cumberbatch almost missed out on playing the detective, because he didn't have the right look.

Speaking to The Sunday People, Gatiss said Cumberbatch was originally thought of as “a sort of ginger weird person” and not sexy enough for the role.

If you weren't getting giddy with excitement for the big screen adaptation of 'Dad's Army' next year, you certainly will be now.

Dad's Army Trailer


Everybody's favourite British regiment is back in the new version of Dad's Army. Director Oliver Parker has recruited the much loved classic British TV Show with the help of some of the UK's best known actors. Like the TV show, the movie is set in 1944 and World War II is almost at its peak. The Home Guard is patrolling the streets of Walmington-on-Sea and their spirits are rather dampened by the thought of the imminent invasion. Their only light relief comes from a visit from a beautiful journalist going by the name of Rose Winters. Rose soon has all the men on their best behaviour and all the ladies of the town attempting to up their game. However it's soon 'back to work' for the men when they find out there's a spy living amidst the residents in their small seaside town.

Benedict Cumberbatch Nearly Turned Down The Part Of Sherlock Holmes


Benedict Cumberbatch Steven Moffat Mark Gatiss

It’s the role that turned him into an international phenomenon, but Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed that he initially came close to turning down ‘Sherlock’.

The English actor, who is currently juggling new fatherhood with playing the lead in ‘Hamlet’, admitted in an interview with CNN’s ‘Talk Asia’ news program on Friday (September 4th) that he had quite a few reservations about accepting the role of the ingenious detective because of the massive fame he thought the “populist role” would bring. He certainly turned out to be correct in that assumption!

Victor Frankenstein Trailer


Igor Strausman is the less thought about assistant of the insane but brilliant Victor Frankenstein. He's as genius as the passionate medical student he aids in experiments, but more rational when it comes to ethics. He does, however, share Frankenstein's obsession with eternal life and becomes equally as excited when they manage to bring a dead animal back to life. This in itself marks a unique scientific advancement, but Frankenstein's morbid curiosity fails to stop there. He wants to be able to create human life, but doing this involves sourcing body parts from mortuaries - and any other place they can find. Igor's timid nature, though deeply involved passion for the project, keeps him from doing his best to dissuade Frankenstein from completing their 'monster', until it's too late. Now they have a rogue beast on their hands, not to mention the police who are out for blood.
