Case Study Intro Characters Names and Types Sherlock is a unique young man with a mind like a 'racing engine'. Without problems to solve, that mind will tear itself to pieces and the more bizarre and baffling the problems the better. He has set himself up as the world's only consulting detective, whom the police grudgingly accept as their superior. Previously an army doctor, shattered by service in Afghanistan, John Watson discovered a new lease of life when he met Sherlock Holmes. Although often infuriated by Sherlock's cold, detached manner, he also sees his flatmate as his best friend. Mycroft works for - and occasionally IS - the British government and often calls on Sherlock to assist when events threaten national security. Uptight and somewhat cold, he is constantly bemused by Sherlock and John's unconventional lifestyle. World-weary with a dry sense of humour, Lestrade is the only member of the police force who Sherlock has any respect for. He's not afraid to risk the ridicule of his colleagues by calling in Sherlock to examine a case. Mrs Hudson adores her boys and they love her right back. Initially bemused by strange events at 221B Baker Street, she now takes them in her stride. Molly is far more comfortable with the dead than the living. But don't mistake her lack of social skills for a lack of intelligence - she's good at her job and, in some ways, far more perceptive about the real Sherlock than he is himself. About Sherlock The iconic details from Conan Doyle's original books remain – they live at the same address of 221b Baker Street, have the same names and, somewhere out there, Moriarty is waiting for them.

Steven Moffat says: "Conan Doyle's stories were never about frock coats and gas light; they're about brilliant detection, dreadful villains and blood-curdling crimes – and frankly, to hell with the crinoline. Other detectives have cases, Sherlock Holmes has adventures, and that's what matters." Setting The series is mostly filmed in London, England, with some parts of episodes filmed in towns around England.
