The creators of BBC’s Sherlock starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman announced that they are working on a new “adventure” called “The Game is Now” expected to be launched later this year. In a new video released yesterday we can hear Mycroft Holmes having a telephone conversation with his brother Sherlock Holmes hinting that the government is working on a mysterious project considering enlisting the help of members of the public.
The Sherlock hit show’s co-creators Steven Moffatt and Mark Gatiss hinted that it would be “not a new episode, and not a new series and not a film…” sounds intriguing? but “an actual new adventure, a proper one.”
In the “leaked” video Mycroft tells Sherlock that “ We are simply short of minds, no amount of quiet recruitment can compensate for our sheer dearth of numbers, we shall have to recruit… publicly…”
“Recruit… real people?” asks Sherlock in disbelief. “Mycroft, you know you can’t trust them, they’re into all sorts of strange things – high protein yoghurts, photographs of food, voting.”
“Yes, but at least they’re replaceable,” replies Mycroft.
Though no casting for the ‘new adventure” has been officially announced, creators promise the project to “involve the people you’d expect to be involved in a Sherlock adventure”. Perhaps, we should expect an interactive game experience?
