A preview of Sherlock by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat

Just in case you didn’t know (I’ve reported on it previously so you can find out more here), Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have been updating the Sherlock Holmes stories for modern times as Sherlock, with Martin Freeman as Watson and Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes. Pics have been around for a little while, but now we have a five-minute promo for it. What do you think?

UPDATE: Well that didn’t take long – already taken down by BBC Worldwide. Way to get everyone interested, guys.
