    Sure since it's Netflix, maybe Enola will be involved as well, with Henry Cavill showing up on occasion as Sherlock.

    Henry Lloyd Hughes is playing Holmes.

    Royce Pierreson is playing Watson.

    Aidan McArdle is playing Lestrade.

    Clarke Peters is also in it.

    So they are going a supernatural route with this.

    looks a bit naff, accents dont match the period

    Could be all right, in the absence of any actual new shows worth watching it could fill the time if nothing else lol

    Jesus, what a turd.


    Presumably created by someone who did not appreciate what Sherlock Holmes was about at all, at all.

    The Irregulars? Is this about a group of people who should eat more fibre?

    Netflix is getting tough on under performing shows.

    Perhaps, but if in a pandemic and an otherwise thin slate of competition, you can't manage an audience? That's not a good reflection either. That or maybe Netflix is finally realising a glut of YA oriented content only buys so many viewers...

    Never watched yet. Did they pretty much wrap up the story and maybe tease a new one or was it going to run on to a second season?

    you assume people only want to watch new content regardless of quality. I'd prefer to watch old shows that I had/hadnt seen that come recommended. Going by my son's and his mates viewing habits they will watch a show that is hyped but otherwise they are watching old stuff, The Mentalist, Person of Interest, Breaking Bad etc. and he has us watching the better Anime shows, Death Note,Attack on Titans and we just started watching vinland , whod have thunk it
    Young people now have so much competition with gaming and Youtube etc, we'd be lucky to have the tv on for more than 1 hr per day.

    I think there generally used to be an agreement for two seasons, or there used to be. To attract talent. Now they seem to have abandoned that.
