Netflix's twist on Sherlock casts Line of Duty and Inbetweeners stars
Netflix's new take on Sherlock Holmes, The Irregulars, has announced its cast.
The series will see a group of street urchins solve crimes for the iconic detective and Doctor Watson, while they take all the credit.
And playing Holmes will be The Inbetweeners and Killing Eve's Henry Lloyd-Hughes, while Line of Duty's Royce Pierreson will take on the role of Watson.
Also on board are Clarke Peters (His Dark Materials) as Linen Man, Thaddea Graham (Us) as Bea, Darci Shaw (Judy) as Jessie, Jojo Marcari (Sex Education) as Billy, McKell David (Snatch) as Spike and Harrison Osterfield (Catch 22) as Leopold.
Oscar-nominated writer Tom Bidwell is writing and executive producing The Irregulars, with production now under way.
Previously speaking about the series, he 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."
The Irregulars will stream on Netflix.
