Sherlock & Daughter to start September 2024


Recommended Posts

The CW network recently announced a new TV series Sherlock & Daughter, starring David Thewlis (Remus Lupin in Harry Potter) as Sherlock Holmes, Blu Hunt as a young American woman who may be his daughter, and Dougray Scott as the obligatory Moriarty.  Here's pretty much all I know about it: https://variety.com/2024/tv/news/david-thewlis-sherlock-daughter-cw-1235912276/

The CW (which I've heard mentioned but don't know much about) is apparently a sort of hybrid network in the US and Canada, with some free-to-air channels (including one in Indianapolis, yay!), some cable channels, and some streaming.

Have I missed some recent ones?  All I'm familiar with is the fannish claim that Nero Wolfe (Rex Stout's super-sleuth) is the son of Irene Adler and Sherlock Holmes -- interesting thought, but I'm not the least bit convinced!

OK, now I see what you mean -- like I don't consider anything after Next Generation to be real Star Trek (more like soap operas -- complete with evil twins! -- set in the Star Trek universe).

Has anyone heard what era Sherlock & Daughter is set in?  Or what country?

Back on topic -- there's a bit more info online now.  Here's the official synopsis (from this article) --

The mystery thriller series SHERLOCK & DAUGHTER puts Sherlock Holmes (David Thewlis) out of his comfort zone, mysteriously unable to investigate a sinister case without risking the lives of his closest friends. Enter: young American Amelia (Blu Hunt, “The Originals,” “The New Mutants”). After her mother’s mysterious murder, she learns her missing father may be the legendary detective. Despite wildly different backgrounds and attitudes, the pair must work together to solve a global conspiracy, crack her mother’s murder, and find out for sure if she really is Sherlock’s daughter.

That same article also mentions another potential Holmes-universe program, Watson (see this thread).
