It’s rare these days to turn up at a press conference, awards ceremony or other event featuring the stars of Sherlock and not find a group of screaming fans out the front trying to catch a glimpse of their heroes. So when Martin Freeman, who plays John Watson in the BBC1 detective drama, likens the Sherlock phenomenon to Beatlemania, he has a point.

"The reaction to [the show] has been unlike any I've had to any other job I've done," said Freeman. "I've got some great reactions to things I'm very proud of, but I don't think any surpass Sherlock in terms of critical acclaim and numbers of people watching - and just a general feeling that you're in a mini Beatlemania."
