Users will be invited to become part of the detective's 'Homeless Network' and help Sherlock Holmes and John Watson investigate ten available new cases.

Fans can virtually navigate their way around London on foot, by tube or by taxi, speaking to witnesses and gathering evidence along the way. There are also opportunities to play games, earn money and pick up valuable tools to progress with the mission.

The app - produced by The Project Factory and Hartswood Films - also includes exclusively shot video of the show's stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman in their roles as Sherlock and John.

Sue Vertue, executive producer at Hartswood Films, said: "Sherlock fans have been asking us for ages to create an app and we think that through Sherlock: The Network, The Project Factory has created an impressive, innovative way for them to immerse themselves in a bit of Sherlock's world whilst waiting for us to make more shows!"

The Project Factory Creative Director Rob Barnes added: "This app is set to be a real treat for Sherlock fans who, rather than mourn the end of the third series, can look forward to the fact that they will have a completely new, interactive digital experience to immerse themselves in.

"The scripting, approach and case structure reflect the television programme, keeping the mysteries flowing."

Sherlock: The Network will be available to download from the App Store from January 20, priced at £2.99.
