Here’s the guy you’re going to be hating in season three of Sherlock. Producer Sue Vertrue revealed through her twitter that this season’s nemesis will be actor Lars Mikkelsen (yes, he’s Mads’ brother) in the role of Charles Augustus Magnussen.
This looks like a twist on Charles Augustus Milverton who was “king of the blackmailers” in an original short story penned by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. There was also a 1945 movie about him in which he was swapped out for Moriarty. It’ll be interesting to see how he’s treated this time around.
