Sherlock season 5: What happened to Eurus Holmes? Will Sherlock’s sister return?

January 27, 2020

Sian Brooke plays the sweet mother of the antichrist Diedre Young in the Good Omens series. But she is used to playing much more complex characters, notably Eurus Holmes. Eurus was the secret sister of Sherlock Holmes (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) in the BBC One series. Here Brooke reveals how she really felt about playing the character.

Eurus Holmes is the younger sister of Mycroft (Mark Gatiss) and Sherlock Holmes who was unknown to Sherlock until The Lying Detective episode.

Although a genius, she displays psychotic issues and it is revealed in the series she kills Sherlock’s best childhood friend.

She spends the series in a maximum security psychiatric prison after burning down the family home.

Sian Brooke was asked to audition for two parts for the series, but was not told until after receiving the parts they were in fact the same person.

Speaking about whether she would play Eurus again she said: “It would be great, she is definitely a character I would love to revisit.

“You don’t get to play these parts every day, she’s abnormal and those sorts of parts are always great.

“She doesn’t respond or behave the way others do. I get asked questions about what would happen next to her.”

She added: “There is definitely more to the mind of that character.”

She compared her character Eurus Holmes to Diedre Young in Good Omens and said they were totally different.

She said: “She and Diedre both live in a fantasy world but Diedre couldn’t be further from Eurus. It was a welcome change.”

In Good Omens she plays the mother of Adam Young (Sam Taylor Buck), the antichrist who has been sent to start the end of the world.

She stars alongside Michael Sheen and David Tennant, as well as close friend Daniel Mays.
