It’s arguably the toughest case Sherlock has ever faced. Thankfully, he has Count von Count on hand to help.

It’s safe to say that Benedict Cumberbatch is at the peak of his powers right now. As well as turns in the likes of Twelve Years a Slave, The Hobbit and the most recent instalment of the Star Trek franchise, he’s also the star of the wildly popular BBC detective series Sherlock, the latest series of which aired to mixed reviews last month.

You know you’re truly A-list when you’re invited onto Sesame Street and Cumberbatch followed in the footsteps of famous people past and present with a brief sketch that lightly poked fun at his renowned powers of deduction as the famous detective Sherlock Holmes.

With the help of Count von Count, Cumberbatch attempts to solve a case set forth by his supposed arch-nemesis Murray-arty and the end result is very charming and fairly amusing, as you would expect from the always excellent Sesame Street crew.
