This is the hit series of Sherlock as you’ve never seen it before, from story development to casting, sets, costumes, props, music, and more. With unprecedented access to the production team’s archives, as well as all-new interviews, unseen script pages, more than 500 illustrations, including color photographs, pieces of concept art, and storyboards, Sherlock: Chronicles unlocks the secrets of each unforgettable case in the words of the show’s creators, cast, and crew.

Discover how the Sherlock team adapted classic adventures and puzzles for a fresh new world. Meet the artists and designers whose creative vision brought the show to life.

Learn the real story about the producers’ and writers’ vision for Sherlock’s clever return from the grave at the beginning of season three, and what the esteemed cast of actors—including Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Rupert Graves, Mark Gatiss, and Una Stubbs—think about bringing Holmes to life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So. Fricking. Amazing Christmas gift for myself. If you are a Sherlock fanatic you NEED this. The colour photos are soooo gorgeous (John and Mary's wedding album too!!) and also there are so many excellent bits of information. Also, some deleted scenes. :D

“Deftly straddles the material’s literary essence and the dictates of modern-day entertainment, trading fog and gaslight for a sleek 21st century London that’s equal parts gloss and grit.”
