Toby Jones joins Benedict Cumberbatch & Martin Freeman on Sherlock

Toby Jones (Infamous, The Secret Agent, The Girl) is confirmed to star in the fourth season of Sherlock on MASTERPIECE PBS, produced by Hartswood Films for BBC One and co-produced with MASTERPIECE.

Toby Jones will star in the second episode of the brand new three-part season, which starts filming today. Episode two will be directed by Nick Hurran, who was Emmy®-nominated for Outstanding Directing for a Miniseries for "His Last Vow", a season three Sherlock episode.

Toby Jones said: “I'm excited and intrigued by the character I shall be playing in Sherlock..." Rumor has it that he will be a villain.

Promising laughter, tears, shocks, surprises and extraordinary cases, it was announced last month that season four will begin with the nation’s favorite detective, the mercurial Sherlock Holmes, back once more on British soil, as Doctor Watson and his wife, Mary, prepare for their biggest ever challenge - becoming parents for the first time.

Sherlock is written and created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, and inspired by the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Sherlock is produced by Sue Vertue and the executive producers are Beryl Vertue, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat for Hartswood Films, Bethan Jones for BBC Cymru Wales and Rebecca Eaton for MASTERPIECE. It is distributed internationally by BBC Worldwide.

I've always liked Toby. I'm pleased that another season is being made. the show is wildly over the top but very enjoyable. I liked the Abominable Bride-it was strictly tongue in cheek.
