MASTERPIECE and the BBC present the U.S. Premiere Screening of Sherlock
8:00 PM to 10:00 PM – Room 1A06
From the writers of Doctor Who, a Sherlock for the 21st century – Sherlock Holmes stalks again in a thrilling modern version of the Arthur Conan Doyle classic, starring Benedict Cumberbatch (Atonement, The Last Enemy) as the go-to consulting detective in 21st century London, with Martin Freeman (The Office UK, Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy) as his loyal friend, Dr. John Watson, and Rupert Graves as the long-suffering Inspector Lestrade. Fast-paced, funny, and surreally true to the hero’s fantastic gifts for deduction, the series – created by Doctor Who’s Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss – was a massive hit when it aired this summer in the UK. Sherlock premieres on MASTERPIECE Mystery! on PBS with A Study in Pink (October 24), followed by The Blind Banker (October 31) and The Great Game (November 7) – each mixing beloved elements of Conan Doyle’s original stories with the even more dangerous possibilities for criminal mischief in the modern world, especially by the likes of Holmes’s arch enemy, the evil Moriarty. The BBC releases Sherlock: Season One, featuring exclusive bonus content, on DVD and Blu-ray on November 9.
