Sherlock gets Raunchy with Fetish & Nudity

The BBC dramatisation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic character, Sherlock Holmes and his many complex cases to solve has come under media fire for its recent episode, including amongst other sexual overtones, fetish and nudity.


The episode, entitled A Scandal In Belgravia (based on the 1891 short story A Scandal In Bohemia) saw sizzling sexual chemistry in action between Sherlock (played by actor Benedict Cumberbatch) and ‘The Woman’, Irene Adler (actress Lara Pulver).

Despite the absence of any actual glimpses of sexual body areas or other inappropriate images for pre-watershed viewing, it seems the implications and female’s bare back were enough to bring the BBC under fire by the media and various Twitter users.

Amongst the shocking scenes stated were one where Miss Pulver wore only diamond earrings, lipstick and heels as she flirted with Holmes, as well as another where she was shown wearing a thong and carrying a whip as she walked into a room containing a woman tied to a bed.

The Dominatrix character was stated during the episode to be lesbian, but toyed with Sherlock’s affections and eventually it was revealed to be something even deeper, possibly even love.

The episode which aired on New Year’s Day, saw close to ten million viewers tuning in to watch the story play out.

It has been speculated that the episode had strong sexual overtones to negate murmurs about a possible homosexual undercurrent between our protagonist Sherlock and his colleague Dr John Watson, played by Martin Freeman.
