Having just finished its third season, the BBC's modern take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Baker Street detective will have probably left fans itching for something to keep their wits sharp till the next adventure. 

Luckily The Project Factory's Sherlock: The Network is here to keep you amateur sleuths occupied in the meantime.

Drawing its inspiration from Sherlock's collection of underground communities, The Network asks you to become a member of the Baker Street Irregulars. This group of homeless helpers unearth information to aid the detective in solving the case.

Taking cues from fellow private investigator Professor Layton, the game has you gathering data by solving puzzles on the streets of London. Solving conundrums will reveal clues, bringing you and Sherlock closer to the truth. It's elementary really.

As the game contains over 30 minutes of exclusive video footage, players will be able to closely study Benedict Cumberbatch's inquisitive brow as he continues his role as the titular detective. Helping him on the case are Martin Freeman (Dr Watson), Mark Gatiss (Mycroft), and Louise Brealey (Molly), who all reprise their roles for this original adventure.

Sherlock: The Network is available now in the UK at £2.99. Those of you in the US for will able to purchase the game from January 27th at a price of $4.99.
