With the BBC TV series starring Benedict Cumberbatch, a blockbuster Museum of London exhibition and spin-off novels by Clerkenwell local Anthony Horowitz, it seems Sherlock Holmes is more popular than ever.

The consulting detective first appeared on the big screen more than a century ago, and the Barbican is going back to the films of the Twenties for a season of silent Sherlock with live piano accompaniment. It begins on 15 February with the 1921 film of The Hound of the Baskervilles starring Eille Norwood, a cinema adaptation that Holmes creator Arthur Conan Doyle admired. The season continues with A Scandal in Bohemia (8 March) and The Sign of Four (29 March).
