On July 25th 2010, smash-hit detective drama Sherlock first got here to our monitors – and precisely a decade later lovers are thankfully remembering the Benedict Cumberbatch-starring collection on social media, sharing outdated clips and pictures beneath the hashtag #10YearsOfSherlock.
However, in a wonder transfer the collection’ creators have additionally began to get in at the nostalgic motion, with Mark Gatiss (who wrote the collection with Steven Moffat) reprising his onscreen position as Sherlock’s older brother Mycroft for a brand new video commemorating the anniversary.

“It has come to my attention that it is ten years since a highly fictionalised account of my brother’s adventures was brought to the screen. This was a mistake,” Gatiss says (in personality) right through the video, which was once created for Chinese streaming web site Youku and in addition options references to Mycroft’s time in socially-distant lockdown (aka, “paradise”).
“Detection is or should be an exact science, and should be treated with the same cold and unemotional manner,” he persevered.
“These programmes have attempted to tinge it with romanticism, which has rather the same effect as if one were to work a love story or an elopement into the fifth proposition of Euclid. However, in their defence, the one who plays me is very handsome.”
“Some of us have re-read Proust during lockdown, or learnt another three languages, but if you choose to vegetate on the sofa watching the television, that is entirely your concern,” he concluded, earlier than teaching audience to “go away,” and you’ll watch the entire clip above now.
