“Sherlock”  Figures Feature Cumberbatch and Freeman in Their Victorian Finery

Few television series have so expertly reimagined a classic property as “Sherlock,” the BBC drama based on Arthur Conan Doyle’s beloved detective stories.

Although the hit series is set in modern-day London, for the 2016 special “The Abominable Bride,” Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman’s John Watson were depicted in Victorian England. It’s that episode U.K. toymaker Big Chief Studios turned to for inspiration for its latest 1/6th-scale action figures.

The Sherlock figure, which looks remarkably like Cumberbatch, comes with a deerstalker cap, overcoat, three-piece suit, pipe, guns, lantern and magnifying glass, among other accessories.

The Watson figure, meanwhile, features a period suit and overcoat as well as a bowler hat, gun and a candle stick with holder.

BCS also offers a basic set as well as a limited Dual Signature Edition that includes both figures plus a laser-etched plaque featuring signatures from the actors.

Available for preorder now, the figures are expected to ship in March 2017.
