Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes has remained in the popular consciousness for nearly 125 years. The tales of murder and intrigue have endured because they enthral readers, viewers and listeners today as much as the Victorian audiences they were written for.

I'm in New York again and have been filming all week. I haven't done any hidden camera stuff for ages and it takes a little getting used to. When people ask what it's like doing this kind of comedy, I can only equate it with a bank robbery. There's quite a lot of pre-planning involved, but there are also a swathe of unknown factors that you can never fully control. The tension before you are about to film is extreme – once done, however, you get a huge adrenalin rush followed by a subsequent crash. As we are packing a lot of filming into the week, I am totally exhausted from the experience.

Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law make an unlikely pairing in the latest incarnation of the detective and his sidekick, Dr Watson, but by gum it works. The sleuth investigates murders that seem to have been carried out by Lord Blackwood, a worshipper of the dark arts. The only problem being, the peer had been executed before the spree. The tale may not be from the pen of Arthur Conan Doyle, but is an enjoyable romp, rattling along at a cracking pace, and the look of Victorian London is sumptuous. Fans of the source material might cry foul, but this is a welcome – if slightly leftfield – addition to the Holmes canon, and, after a fallow decade, a return to form for Guy Ritchie.

In Guy Ritchie's rollicking adventure, Holmes (Robert Downey Jnr) is reinvented as a wild-eyed, unhygienic crackpot, while Watson (Jude Law) is a tough war veteran with a gambling habit and a love-hate relationship with his barmy flatmate.

Eddie Marsan would probably agree that his face is his fortune. He is one of those film actors you can't always put a name to, but you'll instantly recognise that cartoon countenance: wide with low ears, flattened nose and crestfallen mouth, liable to look meek or mean depending on how the wind is blowing. It is the sort of face that nature has provided with its own stocking mask.
