Doctor Who Vs. Sherlock, Series 2

The long-awaited second series of Sherlock - created by co-executive producers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss - consolidated the success of it's initial 2010 run by actually increasing it's viewing figures and audience share, and garnered further critical acclaim, and massive internet traffic.
Holmes and Watson - again portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman - were joined by other series regulars Una Stubbs (as Mrs. Hudson), Louise Brealey (Molly Hooper), Rupert Graves (Inspector Greg Lestrade), Andrew Scott (James Moriarty), and 
Gatiss (who played Mycroft Holmes, 
and wrote part two). Lara Pulver debuted as Irene Adler (pictured) in the first story.
