MR HOLMES (PG), SOUTH HOLLAND CENTRE, SPALDING, FROM MONDAY.

Sir Ian McKellen (The Lord of the Rings) plays a long-retired version of the legendary detective in this mystery crime-drama.

Set in 1947, 93-year-old Sherlock now lives in a remote Sussex village with his loyal housekeeper Mrs Munro (Oscar-nominee Laura Linney) and her rising detective son Roger (Milo Parker) – but he is haunted by a 50-year-old unsolved case involving a beautiful woman.
