The mystery laden, fog shrouded menace, of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Victorian master detective, Sherlock Holmes is back! Catch him this coming week on The History Channel's Monday Night Classics special 'Sherlock Holmes And The Baker Street Irregulars'. This exciting, new two-hour mystery adventure will be aired on Monday, March 17, 2008 at 9 PM only on The History Channel

Having enjoyed worldwide recognition, Sherlock Holmes continues to fascinate and mesmerize generation of readers across the globe. A faithful adaptation of the original stories, 'Sherlock Holmes And The Baker Street Irregulars' brings together the multi-award winning Jonathan Pryce (Pirates Of The Caribbean, Brazil) as Sherlock Holmes, with Bill Paterson (Sea Of Souls, Auf Wiedersehen, Pet, Wives And Daughters) playing his trusty companion, Dr Watson.

Commenting on this much loved programme, Rajesh Sheshadri, Senior Vice President, Content & Communications, The History Channel says, "From time immemorial, Sherlock Holmes has enjoyed universal appeal. This special gives Sherlock Holmes' iconic figure a slightly more contemporary feel." He adds, "Through his power packed performance, Jonathan Pryce has successfully captured the true essence of Sherlock Holmes' character. Such specials are in keeping with our strategy of broad-basing The History Channel's appeal."

The Baker Street Irregulars first appeared in the Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlet and again in The Sign of Four. This new family drama pits Holmes and the Irregulars, a rag-tag group of street kids, against one of the famous detective's greatest enemies. The Irregulars find themselves having to solve the mysterious disappearance of two of their own gang, while Holmes himself is accused of murder and put under house arrest. Only by combining all their skills can they hope to free Holmes and the kidnap victims, solve the murders and prevent an audacious heist.

This March, join the Baker Street Irregulars on a journey that sees them grow from being mere tools for Sherlock Holmes, into investigators in their own right in Monday Night Classics on March 17, 2008 at 9 PM only on The History Channel.
