toby Jones cast as the de­tec­tive’s most ‘hor­rific’ foe yet

Film­ing has fi­nally fin­ished on three new episodes of Sher­lock, which will air early next year. Mark Gatiss – who co-writes the series with steven Mof­fat – is so pleased, he’s de­scribed them as the

‘best we’ve done’.

Bene­dict cum­ber­batch, who has won world­wide ac­claim as the great de­tec­tive, says a new bad­die – played by toby Jones – is cen­tral to the drama.

He’s be­lieved to be a mod­ern take on cul­ver­ton smith, the vil­lain from sir arthur co­nan doyle’s 1913 story, The Ad­ven­ture of the Dy­ing De­tec­tive.

although the iden­tity of the deadly neme­sis hasn’t of­fi­cially been con­firmed, steven re­veals that the char­ac­ter will be ‘the dark­est vil­lain we’ve had’. He adds:

‘this guy is the purest evil. sher­lock is ac­tu­ally ap­palled by him… he’s hor­rific.’
