Thanks to a follower on the Facebook page*, I was alerted to the following:
Apparently this is a group of kids Holmes relied upon to tell him what was going on around town, probably the basis for Sherlock’s “homeless network” in the BBC series. This new show follows them after they’ve gotten older.
The interesting bit is here:
Alongside the key cast, Royce Pierreson (Line of Duty, The Witcher) plays the menacing Dr Watson alongside the elusive Sherlock Holmes, brought to life by The Inbetweeners and Killing Eve’s Henry Lloyd-Hughes. Clarke Peters plays the mysterious Linen Man, while guest cast include Game of Thrones’ Rory McCann and Two Doors Down’s Kieran Hodgson.
Apparently it will all be available to stream on 26 March.
I’m thinking about asking House Male for his login password so I can mooch off his account to screencap these. But if I don’t, I’ll get around to the DVD one of these days.
Also I’ll get around to mirroring this article soon.
And finally, Google Alerts did not inform me of this new development. To say that I am profoundly irritated is the understatement of the year.
*Thanks to the lady who let me know about this. However, I have now put the Facebook page into its delete process which will take 14 days to complete. I don’t know if it’s available to visitors during that time; I doubt it. The 14 days is in case I drunk-deleted it and want to change my mind later. Sotally tober, folks. So sorry. More information here.
