So, Benedict Cumberbatch has given his blessing to the idea of the a female Sherlock and we are all for it. Take a look at our all-female Sherlock dream cast.

The thirteen-year-old Stranger Things actor has been the break out star of the show, featuring in a number of ad campaigns, and music videos. She’s also signed on to the Godzilla sequel, Godzilla: King of Monsters. She’s feisty, confident, and clever and I think she’d make an amazing young Sherlock. In fact, I think there could be potential for a pretty great re-casting of the entire Sherlock ensemble using just the Stranger Things kids.

It sort of feels like Emma Thompson has already played Sherlock, she fits the role so well. Her dry wit and twinkling eye make her perfect for the role. We can see her taking down mere mortals with cutting remarks and quick comebacks left, right, and center!

This is a role for which I am positive my darling, my beloved Amy Adams could finally win her much-deserved and much-delayed Oscar. She’s funny, charming but with the potential for some serious acting and could bring a wonderful new lease of life to the role.

Zoe Kravitz’s star is on the rise with roles in movies like Mad Max, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2 (in production), and shows such as Californication and Big Little Lies. She’s become pretty established. But I’d love to see her lead a cast, and I think Sherlock could be the role for her. Sherlock is cool. She is cool. Perfect.
