Super sleuth Sherlock Holmes wouldn’t be on our TV screens if it weren’t for women like series producer Sue Vertue so it’s particularly exciting to hear that she’s teaming up with series stars Una Stubbs (Mrs Hudson), Louise Brealey (Molly Hooper) and Amanda Abbington (Mary Morstan/Watson) at this year’s Radio Times Festival.
Vertue, Stubbs, Brealey and Abbington are the latest additions to the festival line-up, and will join series co-creator Steven Moffat for a very special discussion about the women who keep Mr Holmes on the case on Sunday 27th September.
The Women of Sherlock will be in session from 5–6pm, and doubtless have plenty to talk about: the man from 221b Baker Street has been off our screens for 18 months now, and an air date for his much-anticipated Victorian Christmas Special has yet to be confirmed.
Sir David Attenborough, Jon Snow, Alex Jones, Peter Capaldi, Melvyn Bragg, Simon Schama and David Walliams will also be among the raft of TV favourites appearing at the four-day event at The Green at Hampton Court Palace, from Thursday 24th to Sunday 27th September.
Una Stubbs, Louise Brealey and Amanda Abbington will be at Radio Times Festival on Sunday 27th September. You can buy tickets here.
