PICTURES: Sherlock is not impressed with Baby Watson in new series four teaser images
The first pictures from the upcoming fourth series of Sherlock are here.
Fans of all things adorable will enjoy the new images, which include John Watson with a newborn and the Watson family’s pet dog.
Sherlock, however, looks less than impressed by the newest addition to the Watson family. In one picture, he’s observing the baby with a very grumpy expression. Could sleepless nights and dirty nappies be getting in the way of Sherlock and Watson’s adventures?
The images also give us our first glance at series four’s new villain Culverton Smith, played by Toby Jones.
Last August, Sherlock showrunner Steven Moffat said Smith was “the darkest villain we’ve had”.
Meanwhile, writer and actor Mark Gatiss added: “Toby is doing something very interesting. He’s an avuncular, funny seeming man with terrible teeth. We’ve given him terrible teeth, which are symbolic of the rot inside him. It’s a great complex, shaded character. You’re not quite sure what the relationship is with him.”
Speaking of Gatiss, there’s also an image of him in character as Mycroft Holmes at the Cabinet Office in London, as well as a family pic with him and brother Sherlock.
