Ex-Emmerdale star hits Chesterfield

Former telly soap actor Ian Sharrock is making tracks for Chesterfield to play the sidekick of the world’s most famous detective.

He takes on the role of Dr Watson in Sherlock Holmes: A Study In Fear at the Pomegranate Theatre on October 26 and 27.

Ian - who made his name as accident-prone Jackie Merrick in Emmerdale Farm - describes the play as: “A full-on energetic yarn; a real Boy’s Own adventure.”
