Toby Jones will be joining the cast of BBC’s Sherlock and the actor will be playing the classic Sherlock Holmes villain Culverton Smith. Culverton had appeared in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s ‘The Adventure of the Dying Detective’, that was published in 1913. In the story, the villain tries to murder Sherlock by using a spring-loaded box set to release an infectious disease. The plot revolves around how Sherlock outplays him.
The creators of the series, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are very thrilled. Moffat said, “Delighted to have Toby Jones on board, bringing to life one of Doyle’s finest villains.” Gatiss added, “We’re thrilled to welcome one of our finest actors to the Sherlock family,” reported LatinTimes.com.
