A brief into the show
The detective-crime drama series Sherlock is created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. The series is based upon a book written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The Sherlock series came out in four parts between 2010 and 2017. The show stars Benedict Cumberbatch as an ace-detective named Sherlock and Martin Freeman as his flatmate-cum-assistant Doctor John Watson.
The two famously put up at 221B, Baker Street. And if you are a Sherlock fan, you are bound to know this!
The hype around Sherlock explained
Sherlock is one of the most admired British detective shows of all time. The character (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) alone speaks in volumes to its mass fan-following. You cannot love the show if you don’t love this man.
Benedict Cumberbatch’s teal eye colour and immaculate acting skills sway the female audiences by their feet. Meanwhile, Benedict as Sherlock compliments the role because of his fast-paced dialogues, precise and clean acting skills and his physical embodiment that all-in-all are a perfect fit for the actor and the character both.
Trust me today if anybody were to ask me whom can I imagine playing the role of Sherlock better than Benedict Cumberbatch, my answer would be no one. The man slips into the role as smooth as silk.
Why the makers should seriously consider Sherlock Season 5
Over the course of time, Sherlock Holmes has become a household name. If the makers consider Sherlock Season 5, it would mean more of Benedict Cumberbatch, more of Sherlock’s unique style of solving cases and more of his suave. Season 5 of the addictive mystery-thriller is set to soar its audiences’ expectations off the roof. There is never a dull day into any of Sherlock’s episodes and the fifth season is only going to up-the-ante.
How popular is the show
Even before the television series was set out, Sherlock as a stand-alone character was an instant hit. People loved reading about Sherlock’s adventure and thrilling experiences. The stories of Sherlock as the world’s greatest detective struck with its readers. Such is the love for this detective that the literary excerpt has been recreated by dozens of filmmakers, writers and production companies.
Other actors that have played Sherlock before
Before Benedict Cumberbatch donned the role of Sherlock, Robert Downey Jr played the popular Holmes in Guy Richie’s version of Holmes. However, few Sherlock fans would go against the norm and argue that Basil Rathbone’s portrayal of the great detective for the big screen is the best so far while some may suggest it is Jeremy Brett’s Holmes for ITV in the 1980s.
With such massive fan-following, we hope the makers of Sherlock announce Season 5 of the brilliant detective show again.
