The BBC One series two season of three 90 minute Sherlock Holmes films (A Scandal in Belgravia, The Hounds of Baskerville, and The Reichenbach Fall) has been the winter hit of 2012 so far. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch (Small Island) in the title role and Martin Freeman (The Office) as Dr. Watson the stories cleverly bring Conan Doyle's famous characters into the world of modern day London. Becoming embroiled in the complex plans of the dangerous and desirable Irene Adler, Sherlock needs every one of his remarkable skills to survive and an invitation to the wilds of Dartmoor brings our terrified heroes face to face with the supernatural. Meanwhile, Moriarty, still out there in the shadows, is determined to bring Sherlock down, whatever the cost. The music from series one, composed by David Arnold and Michael Price, received BAFTA and Emmy nominations and won an RTS Television Award.
If David Arnold and Michael Price did not exist, it would be necessary for man to invent them. Their contribution to Sherlock is immeasurable. Thrilling, cheeky, sinister, playful and simply world-class…the music's not bad either! --Mark Gatiss (Sherlock and League of Gentlemen creator)
