Cumberbatch Is Actually Related to the Creator of Sherlock Holmes! 

‘Sherlock’ has been nominated for numerous awards including: BAFTAs, Emmys, and a Golden Globe, winning several awards across a variety of categories.  - Sakshi Post

Here’s another interesting trivia for Benedict Cumberbatch fans. Genealogy detectives have discovered that British actor who portrays Sherlock Holmes in TV series "Sherlock", is actually related to the author who created the iconic character more than a century ago.

According to the website Ancestry.com, Cumberbatch, 40, and the late Arthur Conan Doyle, who died in 1930, were 16th cousins, reports hollywoodreporter.com.

The Emmy-winning TV series "Sherlock" will be back on the Indian small screen with season four in 2017. It will air from January 7, on AXN.

Ancestry.com wasn't asked to dig into the backgrounds of Cumberbatch and Doyle, but its researchers love both -- the series and historical puzzles, said spokesman Dallin Hatch. They haven't told the actor of the connection.

PBS’s website will stream the episode on New Year’s day.

Series 3 of Sherlock ended with Moriarty’s face appearing on every television screen in London with a voice caption saying ‘Did you miss me?’ With Sherlock himself brought back to life, the possibility of bringing back Moriarty would not be technically out of reach.

But for those of us in India who cannot wait till January 7, PBS’s website will stream the episode on New Year’s day.
