Sherlock Heads North To Escape Moriarty In 2018

According to Variety, Finnish writer and director Juha Wuolijoki has revealed to TV Drama Vision at the 40th Göteborg Film Festival that he is developing a ten-part series featuring Sherlock Holmes, and approved by the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Estate, entitled Sherlock North.

Based on the 1903 short story The Adventure Of The Empty House, Sherlock Holmes assumes the identity of a Norwegian explorer named Sigerson after faking his own death at the Reichenbach Falls, and travels to Lapland in a bid to escape Professor Moriarty.

Wuolijoki said: “Holmes is hiding from Moriarty… Although he has promised his brother Mycroft that he won’t, he starts solving small local crimes which lead to bigger issues, aided by Finnish former doctor, Johanna Watson.”

Filming for Sherlock North is slated to begin in the winter of 2018.
