Natalie will be starring alongside Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu in a three episode arc building to a special two hour season finale which will air in May.

Executive Producer and creator Rob Doherty said “We’re moving to the next chapter in our show – and in some ways, to a previous chapter in Holmes’ story. Irene Adler is perhaps the most pivotal relationship in Sherlock’s life, and I can’t think of an actress better suited to the challenge than Natalie.”

We’re looking forward to seeing more of Natalie in the future !
