While the character of Sherlock Holmes has existed for over a century, his popularity increased dramatically in recent years thanks to this modernized version of the character, featuring Benedict Cumberbatch. This is the Sherlock episode timeline.

What’s on the Sherlock Timeline?


So far, there isn’t much on the Sherlock timeline, since it contains only the episodes and webisodes related to the BBC television show starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.

This timeline does not include the books that the show is loosely based on, or any other rendition of the Sherlock Holmes Adventures, which have taken various forms of media over the years, it is limited to only the modernized BBC show. As you might imagine, we recommend you start from the beginning with this timeline.

If you like this timeline, you should visit some of our others, such as the Bourne timeline.

Don’t forget to let us know if there’s something we can add or improve. Please tell us if we missed something because we love hearing your feedback! Thank you, and enjoy!
