The final episode of this series of Sherlock – The Final Problem has now aired.
Our review of the new Sherlock episode The Lying Detective has been added to the site – and what a fantastic episode it was!
You can catch up on the episode on iplayer.
2016 has been it’s fair to say a bit of a mixed bag. With a combination of terrible world events and the somewhat unrelenting celebrity deaths which saw several of my heroes and the world’s biggest icons taken well before their time it’s a year I’ll be glad to see the back of! Still Cumberbatchweb went from strength to strength in 2016 and it was fun to take part in the Sherlocked event this year which saw me interviewing Sherlock’s composers Michael Price and David G Arnold as well as Benedict’s parents Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton.
Luckily for Benedict it was also another fantastic year for him personally!
The site has been updated with a whole host of Sherlock series 4 content including new promo photos, photos for the first episode The Six Thatchers and behind the scenes material (several courtesy of the lovely Louise Brealey!)
Sherlock returns with The Six Thatchers on New Year’s Day.

New Sherlock promo images have been released for series 4 and added to the gallery.
The new images show Sherlock, Mary, John and the new baby Watson.
The BBC have also released a new decidedly ominous teaser for the show (below) and a plot summary for the first episode The Six Thatchers:
Sherlock waits to see where Moriarty will make his posthumous move. One mysterious case in particular baffles Scotland Yard – but Sherlock is more interested in a seemingly trivial detail. Why is someone destroying images of the late Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher? Is there a madman on the loose? Or is there a much darker purpose at work? Something with its roots deep in Mary Watson’s past…”
