VOTD: “Sherlock,” “Luther,” “Fall” Team-Up

Fans love to craft mash-up videos of franchises that often don’t go together, but what if a network did it? The BBC has crafted an amusing and silly promo for three of its current iconic detective dramas – “Sherlock,” “Luther” and “The Fall” – which sees the key characters from each coming together over one case.

Sadly this wasn’t specially shot for the network, rather it uses a combination of CG, editing and backgrounds to splice existing footage of characters Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch), John Watson (Martin Freeman), John Luther (Idris Elba), and Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) from the three shows into a single narrative piece.

A new two-part “Luther” special screens this week, a new “Sherlock” special airs in the first week of the New Year ahead of a new season later in 2016, and a new season of “The Fall” is now filming ahead of a mid-late 2016 bow.
