Here’s the official Netflix synopsis –
“Based on the beloved Edgar-nominated book series, ENOLA HOLMES tells the story of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’ rebellious teen sister Enola, a gifted super-sleuth in her own right who often outsmarts her brilliant siblings. When her mother mysteriously disappears on her 16th birthday, Enola seeks help from her older brothers. But soon realizing they’re less interested in solving the case than in packing her off to finishing school, Enola does the only thing a smart, resourceful and fearless young 1880s woman can do… she runs away to London to find her. Meeting a cast of memorable characters along the way, Enola’s caught in the middle of a conspiracy that could alter the course of political history. ENOLA HOLMES puts a dynamic new female twist on the world’s greatest detective and his brilliant family.”
Harry Bradbeer (Fleabag, Killing Eve) is making his feature directorial debut with Enola Holmes, which is written by Jack Thorne, the screenwriter and playwright behind the Tony-winning Harry Potter And The Cursed Child and HBO’s His Dark Materials.
Production on Enola Holmes has currently stalled due to the pandemic, and Brown can next be seen in Godzilla Vs. Kong, due to be released in November.
