Test your powers of perception and see how they stack up against Sherlock!
Benedict Cumberbatch ("War Horse," "The Last Enemy") returns as the world’s foremost consulting detective, with Martin Freeman ("The Hobbit," "The Office" UK) as the stalwart, if edgy, Dr. John Watson, and Andrew Scott ("Lennon Naked") as the unassuming mastermind of evil, Jim Moriarty.
Guest stars for the new season include Lara Pulver ("True Blood") as Irene Adler, the only woman who ever kindled the embers of passion in Holmes; and Russell Tovey ("Little Dorrit") as the character who speaks the immortal line, “Mr. Holmes, they were the footprints of a gigantic hound!” Except the hound he means is not just big.
The returning cast includes Rupert Graves ("The Forsyte Saga," "God on Trial") as Inspector Lestrade, the man nominally in charge of crime solving in London; Mark Gatiss ("Sense & Sensibility") as Sherlock’s cloak-and-dagger older brother, Mycroft; and Una Stubbs ("Till Death Us Do Part") as Sherlock’s infinitely patient landlady, Mrs. Hudson.
Each of the three episodes in the new season is pegged to a classic Sherlock Holmes story by Arthur Conan Doyle—delightfully, weirdly, wittily, and briskly updated, of course.
"The Hounds Of Baskerville" airs Sunday, May 13, 2012 at 9 p.m. & repeats Thursday, May 17 at 9 p.m. - In the second episode of season two, Sherlock and Watson pursue the trail of the Baskerville experiments — top-secret government research on genetically engineered gigantic animals for military use. Or so it is rumored. Whatever the truth, something big is up on the moors.
