Sherlock Holmes coming to the BBC with a modern day spin

Robert Downey Jr is starring as a different take on Holmes and now it looks as if there will be a another version.

The BBC confirmed today it has commissioned the first series of the new Sherlock Holmes series, written by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, as three ninety minute episodes.

Moffat is the new Doctor Who showrunner and Tintin screenplay writer, Gatiss is best known as a member of comedy troupe, The League Of Gentlemen.

Gattiss, was one of the four creators of League Of Gentlemen, has writtne episodes of Dr Who and the Lucifer Box novels.

Benedict Cumberbatch (Fortysomething and The Last Enemy) will star as Holmes with The Office’s Martin Freeman as Doctor Watson, set in 2009 London, remaking Holmes as a “dynamic superhero” figure. Rupert Graves plays Inspector Lestrade and Coky Giedroyc will direct the series.

Not sure if this is a great idea or whether it will blow great big chunks of cheese. The fact Moffat is involved means it should hopefully be good.
