Norway Fans in Awesome Sherlock Sketch

Two Sherlock-obsessed Norwegian TV executives have cooked up what must be the best parody yet of the BBC’s updated Holmes and Watson series.

Their skit, titled ‘Oklahomo’, riffs on the way the series plays with the question of Holmes’ sexuality, while perfectly taking off the quick-fire deduction and verbal brilliance of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Holmes, all shot with the same jerky camera movements used in the BBC’s brilliant production.

Inspired after attending a drag show for the first time, Saint Hoax decided to deconstruct the “recipe” of making an iconic queen and came up with the following:
