We’ve teamed up with BBC Books and Virgin Experience Days to bring you a fantastic competition with some great prizes in celebration of the forthcoming release of Sherlock: Chronicles, the new comprehensive guide to the hit BBC series.

Sherlock Chronicles: The ultimate behind-the-scenes look at the making of the hit BBC TV series Sherlock.

Sherlock: Chronicles is packed with exclusive unseen material, including all-new interviews with the cast and crew, this is Sherlock from the ground up: from story and script development to casting, sets, costumes, props, music and more. Featuring over 500 images of concept artwork, photographs, costume and set designs, and more, Sherlock: Chronicles is the ultimate celebration for Sherlock fans everywhere.


Over the next nine days we’ll be taking a look back at each of the episodes and will be testing your knowledge on each. We’ve got nine copies of Sherlock: Chronicles kindly donated by BBC Books to give away (one for each day) and as an extra bonus six of those are signed copies - three signed by Benedict Cumberbatch and three signed by Martin Freeman. It’ll be totally random as to who gets a signed copy and the winners won’t know until their prize arrives in the post!

But that’s not all…. We’ve also got a prize draw to win a BBC Sherlock Locations Tour for Two in a London Black Taxi worth £170 kindly donated by Virgin Experience Days, for those of you who complete each of the daily challenges over the next nine days….

And as a final 221b bonus: those that do enter every day, will also automatically be entered into an extra prize draw to win another Virgin Experience; One Night Murder Mystery Break for Two (from a choice of 10 different locations across the UK) worth £325!

Simply sign up or login (you can use the same details if you’ve already registered with one of our other competitions in the past – don’t worry if you’ve forgotten your password you can reset it) in order to access the daily challenges. Be sure to visit every day over the next nine days and complete the questions in order to be entered in to the daily draws and complete all nine to be in with a chance of winning either the Sherlock Locations Tour or the Murder Mystery Break prize.

The daily book winners will be announced on the site, across our social networks and emailed the day after the draw for the previous day and the two Virgin Experience Days prize winners will be announced on the day of the book release; 6th November 2014.

Good luck!
