This is genius! Thank you Radio Times!

The A to Z of Sherlock
Everything you need to know about Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman's adventures across two stunning series

Follow the link:

My personal highlights:

B is for brother. What Mark Gatiss’s Mycroft lacks in corpulence he more than makes up for with quiet venom. So much so that when he first appeared, I was convinced he was playing Moriarty. (Yes, yes, I know – Sherlock won’t want me for a sidekick any time soon.)

C is for Cumberbatch, Benedict. The flawless actor who makes Sherlock Holmes seem, well, right at home in the 21st century. Also the man whose cheekbones boosted female interest in the next Star Trek movie by, ooh, approximately 1,000 per cent. Before they shot a single frame.

E is for enemy. And isn’t Jim Moriarty the greatest of them all? As played by Andrew Scott, he’s a twisted, relentless demon and a fine match for Cumberbatch’s Holmes.

F is for freak. A term of, ahem, endearment applied to Sherlock by Sergeant Sally Donovan. (Cumberbitches might disagree with the description.)

H is for Hudson, Mrs. Long-suffering landlady (not a housekeeper) more than capable of fooling moronic CIA-trained killers.

W is for Watson, John. Will probably have “I’m not actually gay” engraved on his headstone. Keen blogger, trusted sidekick, loyal friend. And who better to play this saint than Martin Freeman, quite possibly the nicest man on TV?
