There’s one person whose detective skills are better than Sherlock Holmes — his teenage sister Enola Holmes. This is Netflix’s adaptation of Nancy Springer's young adult book series, The Enola Holmes Mysteries. It follows the journey of Sherlock’s feisty sister — who he abandoned — on a quest to find her missing mother. But that might prove a tad difficult under her brother Mycroft's watch.

Harry Bradbeer’s Enola Holmes brings alive a story about a young girl who refuses to obey the norms of the society that places great importance on being a ‘lady’.
