TV Fact #266 – July 17th, 2015:

On the show “Sherlock” (2010-Present), actress Amanda Abbington plays the character Mary Morstan who is the fiancé/wife to the character John Watson (Played by Martin Freeman) in the series. Wouldn’t you know it, Abbington is the real-life longtime partner of Freeman. Course, many of the cast and crew in “Sherlock” are related.

The parents of Sherlock Holmes (Played by Benedict Cumberbatch) are actually Cumberbatch’s real parents, actress Wanda Ventham and actor Timothy Carlton. Producer Sue Vertue is the wife to writer and “Sherlock” co-creator Steven Moffat while co-producer and writer Beryl Vertue is Moffat’s mother-in-law. The husband to writer Mark Gatiss, who also plays Mycroft Holmes on the show, is the barrister in episode “The Reichenbach Fall”. Also, Moffat’s son plays Sherlock Holmes as a child in he episode “His Last Vow”.

The whole cast is like family it seems and, to add to it, when a new episode of “Sherlock” airs the whole cast will go over to Freeman’s and Abbington’s house to watch the episode as it airs. One big happy, sleuthing family.
