Well, who else did you expect to see on the cover? Benedict Cumberbatch is set to return in SHERLOCK this New Year’s Day. During the filming of the fourth series, Crime Scene got to go behind the scenes with the fabulous Baker Street boy. Read on for an extensive (and spoiler-free) report featuring the cast and crew, who seem just as giddy about the show’s return as the rest of us. That’s just one of several huge series to invite us on set, including DEATH IN PARADISE, SILENT WITNESS, STAN LEE’S LUCKY MAN,
MODUS (the big new Nordic Noir) and NO OFFENCE. This issue, Crime Scene also celebrates 20 years of
JONATHAN CREEK, although he’s still got a way to go to match Holmes for longevity. So this month the team and I have chosen our favourite Sherlock BC (Before Cumberbatch). I’ve gone for Basil Rathbone, a swashbuckling film star who also took the sleuth out of Victorian England and may be the definitive Sherlock (sorry, Benedict). Enjoy the issue!
