The last time Sherlock fans saw Irene Adler she was being saved from certain death by Benedict Cumberbatch’s detective, who dispatched a band of terrorists in the final scene of A Scandal in Belgravia.
Ever since then, viewers have been wondering what happened next between Sherlock and Lara Pulver’s whip-smart dominatrix, who was the closest he’d come to a love interest following the sexy battle of wits that unfolded in the series two adventure.
So after writer and co-creator Steven Moffat revealed that the pair meet up for their version of “a night of passion” every six months, fans’ imaginations went into overdrive and when we asked whether they’d like to see a spin-off series following the adventures of Sherlock and Irene, the answer was a resounding yes.
Over two-thirds (68%) of the 4,235 people who voted said the pair should get their own show. The question is, what exactly would it involve? Would Sherlock and Irene’s Nights of Passion (and if you don’t like that for a title, post your own ideas below) see her turning over a new leaf and becoming Sherlock’s crime-solving bit on the side (sorry, John). Or would she instead lead the detective down the other path?
After all, it was Sherlock Holmes himself who once said “I don’t mind confessing to you that I have always had an idea that I would have made a highly efficient criminal…”
