BOOK REVIEW: SHERLOCK: CHRONICLES / AUTHOR: STEVE TRIBE / PUBLISHING: BBC BOOKS / RELEASE DATE: OUT NOW

Written by Steve Tribe, who has also penned several Doctor Who books including The Time Traveller’s Almanac, Companions and Allies and The TARDIS Handbook, this visually stunning and comprehensive guide to the hit television series Sherlock tells the behind the scenes story of how the addictive crime drama began and evolved over its first three series. Complete with a forward by Mark Gatiss, who co-created the series with Doctor Who producer and head writer Steven Moffat in 2010, the 320 pages are divided into 11 chapters that cover all aspects of making the series, from story and script development to casting, as well as sets, costumes, props, music, and visual effects.

Jam-packed with exclusive never before seen content - including brand new interviews with the writers, cast and crew - this in-depth collection looks at every episode of the ground-breaking series under a magnifying glass, from Benedict Cumberbatch's first appearance as the reimagined version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective hero in A Study in Pink, to the cliff-hanger in the final episode of Series 3. There is also plenty of information for fans of the classic Sherlock Holmes stories written by Doyle over 40 years from 1887, mainly for The Strand Magazine. The development of the classic image of Holmes is considered as well as the classic films that shaped Moffat and Gatiss's perception of the character. The casting of Holmes, Watson, and Moriarty are all examined and pages from the series Bible, written by Moffat and Gatiss, are even included for examination.

Boasting over 500 images of concept artwork, photographs, costume and set designs, this massive companion to the series is a must have for anyone who is a fan of Sherlock or writers Moffat and Gatiss.
