Check Out the New Promo For BBC's Modern-Day 'Sherlock'

bbc sherlock Get ready for a brand new take on Sherlock Holmes (again!). 'Doctor Who' mastermind Steven Moffat has recast The World's Greatest Detective as a sharp, modern-day crime fighter in the new BBC miniseries 'Sherlock.'

The miniseries, starring 'Atonement's Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and 'The Office (UK)' vet Martin Freeman as Watson, transports Arthur Conan Doyle's classic characters to contemporary London, where they'll search for a clever killer who makes his murders look like suicides.

Head after the jump for the BBC's slick new promo to get an early taste of the new Holmes in action.

Mark Gatiss ('The League of Gentlemen, Doctor Who') is co-producing and co-writing the action-packed project with Moffat.

The first of three 90-minute episodes will air on July 25 on the UK's BBC1 and BBC HD. The show is expected to air later in the US as part of the PBS 'Masterpiece' series, though the US premiere date has yet to be announced.

I have a weird crush on Martin Freeman. Actually, I think I just like sexy British men.

Jekyll! My husband and I just finished rewatching this over the weekend. I think it was even better the second time around. I love the Holmes stories and Steven Moffat so this may be a must-see.
