Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman embark on their second thrilling, scary, action-packed and hugely entertaining adventure as Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson. Watson’s new life is never dull – after all, he’s sharing a flat with Sherlock Holmes. But solving mysteries won’t pay the bills. The trouble is, though, that Sherlock’s idea of a visit to the bank is not quite what Watson had in mind. Mysterious ciphers are appearing on walls all over London and anyone who sees them is dead within hours, from the glittering financial hub of the city to the heart of a travelling Chinese circus. Sherlock and Watson must decipher the deadly symbols before anyone else falls victim to the mysterious Black Lotus.
