‘Sherlock’ the App: Coming Soon to a Device Near You

In case you’re already fretting about what to do once Sherlock Series 3 is over, worry not. You’ll still be able to get your consulting detective fix as we start on the (hopefully not as) long road to Series 4.

You’ll be able to spend part of the next hiatus solving cases with Sherlock and John yourself.

An official Sherlock app, called Sherlock: The Network offers fans the chance to join the great detective’s homeless network. As part of the game you get to assist Holmes and Watson on ten new cases, virtually navigating your way around London on foot, via taxi or by tube, talking to witnesses and gathering evidence. You can also play mini-games that encompass hacking, code breaking, observation and more.

Specially shot footage of stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman will appear in the game, as well as co-star Mark Gatiss.

Get some details and watch official trailer for the game below – spoiler: it looks quite fun!
