May 9–“Production meeting today, read through tomorrow and shooting starts next Monday…all roads lead to 221b Baker Street. #Sherlock”

May 10–“First readthrough for Sherlock today. In a few hours I shall be reading stage directions stupidly fast.”

“Read-through went great. @Markgatiss has written another cracker! #Sherlock”

May 11–“On my way to rehearsals with Benedict and Martin. Shoot starts Monday so I’ll be sending regular progress reports from the set. #Sherlock”

May 12–“Rehearsals were great fun. First scene up on Monday is with #Sherlock and Dr Watson.”

“Sherlock” is the retelling of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Victorian-era sleuth and his friend, Dr. John Watson, except this time, the stories have been transported to the 21st century.
