Filming starts on Sherlock Holmes

Filming got under way yesterday of the Sherlock Holmes film which features Robert Downey Jr in the lead role. The big screen adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's sleuth is being directed by Mr Madonna, Guy Ritchie.

The Daily Mail has some photos of Downey Jr dressed as the popular detective. He is joined in the film by Jude Law who plays Holmes' sidekick Dr Watson.

While Downey Jr's English accent was pretty good in that Charlie Chaplin film back in the day, it's not clear if the Sherlock Holmes film will feature Ritchie's distinctive take on London dialgoue, i.e. Chas and Dave meets Dick van Dyke's chimney sweep: "Awoight Sherlock? It's blooody elementary my dear Watson, innit."
