"Everyone's aware that 'Sherlock' is a global phenomenon, so I was ready for the constant questioning on what I was doing, what it is like, how was it. It's a daunting idea to join something that's kind of a big deal," Jones said in a statement.

He said: "When you read some scripts, you can't believe how dark places are and that you might have to go in. It's very exciting and I hope I have explored this character as I have explored others before. With this character it's certainly the case.
"In the show, I think that my character is very funny but I may be wrong. I am not sure if he's in charge of all his instincts."
