We've got some hot off the press casting news for series two of Sherlock for you, right here...

It’s been all quiet on the Sherlock series two news front for a while, as the shoot for the three new 90 minute adventures continues. But, having just got back from the Cardiff set of the production, we can confirm a brand new piece of casting news.

Lara Pulver, who has previously been seen in the likes of True Blood (where she played Claudine Crane) and Robin Hood (Isabella), has been cast in the role of Irene Adler.

Irene Adler is, of course, a romantic interest of sorts for Sherlock, although we’ve got few clues thus far as to how Steven Moffat will be approaching the character. It’s Moffat who has written the first episode of Sherlock series 2, A Scandal In Belgravia, which is set to feature the character of Adler, we understand.

Pulver, incidentally, is also appearing in the tenth series of Spooks.

There'll be more news on Sherlock as we get it. Having seen around 15-20 minutes of footage from the new series, though, we can say thus far that there’s much to look forward to...
