It has been a long time since we saw Sherlock Holmes and his adventures with Dr John Watson. No one knows when we will see Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman donning their detective hats again. But Netflix sure knows how to keep people happy. Today, they dropped The Irregulars trailer and the story has everything to do with the Holmes-Watson universe.
The Irregulars is a supernatural web series and the story takes place in Victorian London. While Sherlock’s home 221B Baker Street plays a key role, this time, he is not the saviour. The story is about a group of teenagers named Bea, Jessie, Billy, Spike and Leo who are given a task by Dr John Watson to solve the horror mysteries disturbing the city.
In the trailer, we get to see that British actor Royce Pierreson plays the role of Dr John Watson. He seeks the teenagers’ help and assigns them a mission that has to deal with supernatural activities. It will be quite interesting to see considering how Sherlock was always dismissive about ghost and mythical beings. However, one of the characters in the trailer says ‘Sherlock Holmes doesn’t exist anymore’. Why and How? We can’t wait to know.
The Irregulars trailer is thrilling and we can sense the tension that’s going on as the teenagers try to solve the mystery. Dr John Watson appears discreet as if he is hiding something from them about Sherlock. If Sherlock doesn’t exist, why have they hinted that the show is about saving him? In the trailer, we see scary activities, suspense, bloodshed and lots of crime.
In their YouTube description, the makers explained, “Join this ragtag gang as they uncover the demonic and mysterious depths of Victorian London alongside the sinister Dr Watson and his enigmatic business partner, Sherlock Holmes.”
Actor Henry Lloyd-Hughes, who plays Sherlock Holmes took to his Instagram page to share the trailer. The actor wrote, “The full Irregulars trailer just dropped, it’s A LOT“. He is the latest actor to play Sherlock Holmes in current times along with Robert Downey Jr, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Henry Cavill. The Man of Steel actor played the intelligent detective last year in Netflix film Enola Holmes which also starred Millie Bobby Brown.
