If you are a new, or perhaps not-so-new, fan of the BBC's Sherlock, then this book is required reading. An investigative look into the behind the scenes production of one of the most talked about British television shows in recent memory. This is chock full of photographs and anecdotes, as well as, the origin of the modernization of Doyle's classic duo, Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. *Spoiler Alert! If you have not completed viewing the first three series of Sherlock, do avoid this, as to not be spoiled.*
