Apparently it’s International Sherlock Holmes Day today, and the latest TV incarnation’s creators – Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss – have been up to mischief again.
In a cryptic video, they said that something Sherlock-related is going to be happening this year, although Moffat was at pains to point out that it was “not a new episode, and not a new series, and not a film… but an actual new adventure – a proper one, involving the people that you’d expect to be involved in a Sherlock adventure…”
A link took you to thegameisnow.com, whereupon sign-up, another video awaited, this time with Gatiss and Benedict Cumberbatch reprising their roles as the brothers Holmes.
Mycroft says: “certain cells of the network have gone rather quiet… We are simply short of minds – no amount of quiet recruitment can compensate for our sheer dearth of numbers – we shall have to recruit… publicly…”
So what is this thing? Is it a live show? A convention? A Secret Cinema-style event that allows fans to dress up? Some sort of game, as the site name suggests?
More news as we get it…
