TV - Ils seront les Holmes et Watson de "The Irregulars" (Netflix)...



Les rôles de Sherlock Holmes et de John Watson seront tenus par les comédiens Henry Lloyd-Hughes (Holmes) et Royce Pierreson (Watson) dans la nouvelle production des aventures de Sherlock Holmes en préparation pour Netflix, intitulée The Irregulars (une saison de huit épisodes). Elle devrait mettre l’accent sur les Baker Street Irregulars, les jeunes vagabonds qui assistent le détective.

Tom Bidwell est en charge du scénario. L’auteur s’est exprimé sur ce projet sur la BBC : "Sherlock Holmes [dans les livres de Conan Doyle] avait déjà un groupe d’enfants des rues à son service qu’il utilisait pour l’aider à rassembler des indices. Notre série présente donc ce qui se passerait si Sherlock était un toxicomane, un délinquant et que les enfants l’aidaient à résoudre des cas dans leur ensemble et qu’il en recueillait tout le crédit."

Tiens, tiens, voilà qui nous rappelle un peu le scénario du film Without a Clue (Elémentaire, mon cher... lock Holmes). Bidwell travaille depuis longtemps sur cette adaptation. "C’est mon projet rêvé et ma plus vieille idée (je le présente depuis dix ans). Netflix soutient incroyablement notre vision de la série et nous permet d’être très ambitieux dans la façon dont nous racontons nos histoires."


Sherlock Holmes TV series – with a twist – in the works at Netflix

What if the detective wasn't the one solving crimes?

Netflix has a new Sherlock Holmes series in the works – yes, we know, another one, but this version will show a very different side to the famous detective.

Titled The Irregulars, the series will focus on a group of street urchins who solve crimes for Holmes while he takes the credit. They are based on the Baker Street Irregulars boys, who feature in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's books as intelligence agents for Holmes.

The script is being penned by Oscar-nominated writer Tom Bidwell, who most recently worked on the upcoming Watership Down adaptation, which will air as two feature-length episodes on BBC One on Saturday, December 22 and Sunday, December 23 and will be distributed internationally by Netflix.

Speaking to BBC Writersroom, Bidwell said: "Sherlock Holmes [in Conan Doyle's books] had a group of street kids he'd use to help him gather clues, so our series is what if Sherlock was a drug addict and a delinquent and the kids solve the whole case whilst he takes credit?

"It's my dream project and my oldest idea (I've been pitching it for 10 years). Netflix are incredibly supportive for our vision for the show, and it's allowing us to be very ambitious with the way we're telling our stories."

Bidwell added that he "couldn't be more thrilled" to be working on the show with production company Drama Republic, the same team he worked with on E4's My Mad Fat Diary.
