That’s right, my friends; the incredible Toby Jones joins Sherlock, Series 4 in a role Steven Moffat calls “…one of Doyle’s finest villains.”


In turn, Jones says he’s “excited and intrigued” by the character he’s playing…hmm — any guesses? Nick Hurran (“His Last Vow will direct the episode(s).

Sherlock‘s fourth outing will begin with “Holmes (Cumberbatch) back on British soil, as Doctor Watson (Freeman) and his wife, Mary (Amanda Abbington), prepare for parenthood.” Filming of the second episode (h/t Jenn) began today, and Series 4 is expected to air sometime in 2017.
