In the series, Sherlock Holmes, detective consultant to Scotland Yard played by Benedict Cumberbatch Avengers: Infinity War, Doctor Strange teamed with Dr. He is the gold piece in the puzzle of updating Holmes.

But, unlike for example anything by Agatha Christie, Doyle's cleverness is rooted in pure deductive logic, not on the mechanics of the world. The original Holmes, after all, was not above insulting his best friend or even deriding his deductive capabilities at times. There's not any stuffy reverence here; it is just about bringing smart, well-plotted escapism, that has been Doyle had in your mind. Using his powers of observation and deduction, Sherlock, supported by Watson that channels and aided by modern technology, solves complex and mysterious investigations.
