For fans looking for a “Sherlock” fix, there’s an app for that. The British import has a devoted and second-screen minded fanbase — they waited patiently for the series to make its way across the pond, for Netflix to finally stream it exclusively, and have been known to crowdsource Google maps.
Now there’s another way to geek out. The app, available for iOS, Android, and Kindle, includes a game where you join the Network to solve a series of cases, Benedict Cumberbatch leaves you voicemails with mission updates, and, of course, you can watch exclusive video and audio clips.
Unlike the Kardashian app, which walked the thin line between love and hate for the reality show, The Network is a whole different kind of second screen experience. The game is almost a series within itself. And if you have to make people wait until 2016 for the next installment, it’s really the least you could do.
The app, featured in the video below, was created by Project Factory and Hartswood Films.
