Not sure if I will do this every month, but there sure was a lot going on in April for Sherlock fans! Here is my edition of The Sherlock Latest News April Roundup!
Sherlock Holmes BBC Actor Dies
Although this happened on March 31st, I feel it needs to be included here. Douglas Wilmer passed away at the age of 96. He was probably my very first exposure to Sherlock Holmes in the movies, as my Dad loved watching old movies on TV. Wilmer is best known for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes in the BBC series of the 1960’s. He was not happy there and only did the pilot and the first season. He left the show and was replaced by David Niven. An interesting factoid is that he made a cameo appearance on the 2012 BBC Sherlock episode The Reichenbach Fall. Read more about Douglas Wilmer on his IMDB page.
Rumors have been flying about the start of the BBC Sherlock Series 4 . It appeared to be official by the end of the first week in April. Now of course the chatter is all about who is coming back, who is not coming back, will this be the last series? Of course we all want more of this great series. If you are looking to catch up, it is still on Netflix. If you like to own your entertainment, the BBC Sherlock series is available on Amazon.
