Sherlock, the mystery crime drama starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, may have ended its seven-year run, but you can now get a chance to revisit the hit show once more. 

BBC Writersroom, the department of UK television broadcaster BBC that seeks out and develops new writing talent, has announced that the scripts of all four series of Sherlock are now available for reading. 

The scripts, written by the show's writers Steven Moffat, Steve Thompson, and Mark Gatiss, can be accessed on their website's Script Library. This includes one from the show's Christmas Special, The Abominable Bride.

Other shows that you can view include Doctor Who, Luther, Wreck, and Crossfire. 

Be warned, however, that you cannot publish the scripts on your own platform as they are available only for private, personal use, and not for any other form of wider distribution.

Sherlock first premiered back in 2010 and it consists of four parts with three episodes each. Based on the popular fictional detective created by British author Arthur Conan Doyle, the show is a contemporary retelling of Sherlock solving various mysteries in modern-day London with his assistant and friend Dr. John Watson. 

Aside from Cumberbatch and Freeman, the show also stars Rupert Graves, Una Stubbs, Mark Gatiss, and Louise Brealey.
