Sherlock Holmes stories have been produced and re-imagined numerous times since Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s first story was published 1887.  Steven Moffat’s “Sherlock” is breathtaking and groundbreaking. Told in a modern England, “Sherlock” explores many classic stories with a new twist. Avid and novice fans of Doyle’s work have been kept on the edge of their seats through the creative storytelling and jaw dropping direction. Throughout the two series, Benedict Cumberbatch has helped viewers solve six mysteries with him as Sherlock. Along with Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman helps to humanize Sherlock’s genius as Dr. John Watson.

Recently, fans were thrilled to see that “Sherlock” has been recognized with thirteen Emmy nominations in 2012.
