A contemporary take on the classic Arthur Conan Doyle stories, Sherlock is a thrilling, funny, fast-paced adventure series set in present-day London. Co-created by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Coupling) and Mark Gatiss, Sherlock stars BAFTA-nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (Hawking, Amazing Grace) as the new Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman (The Office, Love Actually), as his loyal friend, Doctor John Watson. Rupert Graves plays Inspector Lestrade. The iconic details from Conan Doyle's original books remain - they live at the same address, have the same names and, somewhere out there, Moriarty is waiting for them. And so across three thrilling, scary, action-packed and highly modern-day adventures, Sherlock and John navigate a maze of cryptic clues and lethal killers to get at the truth.
Several weeks ago we had the heads-up that Sherlock - Season 1, the 2010 BBC program created by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Coupling) and Mark Gatiss (Doctor Who, The League of Gentlemen), would be coming to DVD and Blu-ray Disc soon after the finale airs in North America. Last we heard, that broadcast is planned for November 7th, and it won't be a long wait for the home video at all. Today the BBC and distributor Warner Home Video announced that Sherlock - Season 1 will hit the streets on November 9th!
Priced at $34.98 SRP for the DVD edition, and $39.98 SRP for the high-def Blu-ray Disc, both versions will be a 2-disc set with the Pilot Episode, Audio Commentaries, and a Making-Of Featurette included among the extras. Below is the BBC's online trailer for this release, followed by the package art for the Blu-ray and DVD releases. Check it out:
