Sherlock: The Game Is Now players will be invited to an induction session in a central London location, but the induction takes a surprising and sinister turn when, suddenly, you’re in Sherlock’s shoes…

‘We’re going to empower you to think like Sherlock and be the hero in your own real-life episode of the TV series,’ says Josh Ford, Co-Founder of Time Run, London’s leading name in escape room games.

Sherlock producer Sue Vertue and showrunners Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have consulted on and co-scripted the experience, which features specially-recorded video and audio elements with characters from the show.

‘We can’t wait to try out these brilliant, mind-bending puzzles and (try to) prove we know what we’re talking about,’ said Sherlock co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. ‘Helping out Sherlock on an actual case is what we always dreamed of doing and now is our chance – even if he doesn’t want idiots as colleagues…’

The 17,000 sq ft production will comprise five identical multi-room experiences and bring the intrigue and excitement of detection to a central London location in October 2018.
