Doyle's sleuth to attend Comic-Con

The popular BBC series Sherlock is making its debut at the annual San Diego event Comic-Con.
Comic-Con was founded as a mostly comic book convention in 1970, but now takes in everything from horror and animation and video games to fantasy novels.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, the stars of the show shown in the US via PBS and based on the stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, will not be attending.
But a panel will include Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, both co-creators, executive producers and writers on the award-winning show.
The films Captain America: The Winter Soldier, due out next year and starring Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans, and Thor: The Dark World, set to open in the autumn with Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, will also be heading to the event.
