Not only does Benedict Cumberbatch have the greatest name ever, but he’s also a damn fine actor. Cumberbatch stars as a modern day Sherlock Holmes in the stellar series Sherlock opposite Martin Freeman’s Dr. James Watson, and we’ve been provided with a few copies of the show’s excellent second season as well as a signed poster to give away to a couple lucky readers. Created by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who) and Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen), each season of Sherlock consists of three 90-minute episodes that are an absolute joy to watch.
Having seen all of seasons one and two, I can honestly say there’s not a bad installment in the batch. Season two ramps up the stakes to a whole new level with a dastardly iteration of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic villain Moriarty. Hit the jump to see how you can win.
In order to enter the contest, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address, with SHERLOCK GIVEAWAY in the subject line. The contest will be open until June 14 at noon pacific time. Only one entry per person. Once the giveaway ends, Steve will look over the entries and randomly pick out the winner. If you never hurts to mention why you think you deserve the poster. The champion of the contest will get the season two Blu-ray and a Sherlock poster signed by Cumberbatch, Moffat, and producer Sue Vertue. We’ll also be rewarding a runner-up with the Blu-ray.
In addition to all three episodes of the second season in high-definition, the season two Blu-ray also includes audio commentary for the episodes “A Scandal in Belgravia” and “The Hounds of Baskerville”, as well as a behind-the-scenes featurette entitled Sherlock Uncovered.
