Unboxing the Sherlock Series 1-3 Limited Edition Collector’s Boxset
Thanks to the kind people at BBC Worldwide, we’ve got our hands on the UK exclusive Limited Edition Collector’s Boxset of Sherlock Series 1-3, and thought we’d give you an in-the-flesh look at the unboxing of it.
The premium finished edition of the complete Sherlock - thus far - comes with a few collectibles inside the magnetically clasp sealed and numbered box that are worth noting. The upper section of the boxset contains the three series of the show, packaged in slim DVD cases, and removing these reveals a pocket sized plain paper notebook with stylish interior page art.
A drawer underneath the discs and notebook contains a well bound facsimile of the shooting script for Sherlock S1E1 A Study in Pink, with reproduction signatures of Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. The script is half the size of the genuine article at A5 size. Rounding out the package is a double sided letter from Mrs Hudson, notable as it apparently divulges the first name of our favourite land lady…
The Blu Ray version of the boxset shown here is seemingly no longer available from the BBC Shop, but the DVD edition still is - we suggest hurrying if you still want to try and get your hands on a copy of this extremely well presented premium release of our favourite show.

Sherlock: The Network is out now to purchase on the UK iOS App Store!
In addition, it has been announced the App will debut on the USA App store a week today on January 27!
Watch the Official Launch Trailer.
Long desired and finally here, Sherlock: The Network brings fans an exciting new adventure in game form. Available in the UK on January 20th on the Apple App Store, the game brings users face to face with Sherlock, John, and Mycroft as played by Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and Mark Gatiss, in new and exclusive video footage shot in the sets of the series. The three actors address you directly - in some wonderful and slightly disconcerting scenes, John is talking to you on FaceTime, in footage filmed handheld by Martin Freeman himself.
In the game, you play the role of a nameless member of Sherlock’s homeless network, newly inducted and just starting out on initially menial tasks set by the detective. You journey around London by foot, tube or taxi, the latter two options giving the first of the numerous mini-games that make up the structure of the app. The tube mini-game in particular is enjoyably challenging, requiring you to piece coloured line sections (with a line connection crossover) together to enable the train to travel from one point to the other - the challenge comes from the fact that the pieces you are provided initially may not be correct, and the train itself may begin to travel before you have completed the track…
The storyline is divided into numerous cases, some individual, others connected to the overarching narrative that runs throughout. In each case, you have to journey to destinations on the main London map to interview suspects and crack clues. The clues take the form of the aforementioned mini-games, of which there is a great variety, encompassing a wide range of suitable skills such as code breaking, visual observation, and audio decryption. These puzzles increase in difficulty towards the end of the game. All are timed, and though there is a ‘skip’ button that appears after a set period, using it forfeits the score you have built up through each section - important to consider as the game features a worldwide leaderboard system that links to your Facebook account.
At the end of each case, you must put all the pieces together in your Mind Palace, assimilating floating text describing seemingly disparate information to produce the final solution. All these elements coalesce into an intriguing whole - this is not a game which you can be expected to just hammer straight through in a single sitting. Instead, it demands your full attention to be able to proceed and fully comprehend the story that is being placed in front of you - just like the series itself in many ways!
It’s a no-brainer from us of course, but we highly recommend Sherlock: The Network if you want to experience a more cerebral and genuinely challenging piece of mobile gaming that just happens to feature a glut of new video footage and voice work from the cast of the BBC series.
Sherlock: The Network is released on the UK App Store on January 20 2014, priced at £2.99. International releases dates and an Android version are set to be announced in the future.
Oh Tumblr, we love giving you behind the scenes exclusives. We’ll keep them coming.
One of the biggest requests from Sherlock fans is about to come true in spectacular fashion - an official game app from digital production company The Project Factory and Hartswood Films that lets you interact directly with Sherlock and John is about to arrive for iOS users.
Taking the form of a new epic adventure filled with branching narratives, Sherlock: The Network invites users to become a member of the detective’s trusted ‘Homeless Network’. Players must travel across a game hub depicting London by foot, Tube or taxi, helping Sherlock and John on new cases - starting from simply receiving and passing on messages, to the ultimate challenge of infiltrating the enemy and solving cases with Sherlock as the larger plot unfolds.
Cases are solved by talking to witnesses, collecting and storing evidence, and playing a wide range of mini-games that encompass observaton, hacking, code breaking, and audio decryption. Players can also earn money and pick up valuable tools to help accelerate their mission. The app features a total of 10 new cases for Sherlock fans to crack.
The app includes exclusively shot video of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman in their roles as Sherlock and John, along with voicemails from the pair, iconic locations from the series highlighted on the map, and other clues to find.
As Sue Vertue, Executive Producer from Hartswood Films, explains: "Sherlock fans have been asking us for ages to create an App and we think that through Sherlock: the Network, The Project Factory has created an impressive, innovative way for them to immerse themselves in a bit of Sherlock’s world whilst waiting for us to make more shows!"
Creative director of The Project Factory, Rob Barnes, says: "This app is set to be a real treat for Sherlock fans, who, rather than mourn the end of the third series, can look forward to the fact that they will have a completely new, interactive digital experience to immerse themselves in. The scripting, approach and case structure reflect the television programme, keeping the mysteries flowing."
Sherlockology has played the Sherlock: The Network to completion and will be launching a review of the app next week.
The app, compatible with iPhone and iPad, will be available to download from the App Store on January 20th, 2014. It is priced at £2.99. Release details for an Android version are yet to be announced.
