They will be the focus of the series and have been brought to life by creator Tom Bidwell to save the city.
The group is made up of leader Bea (Thaddea Graham), her younger sister Jessie (Darci Shaw) and their friends Billy (Jojo Macari), Spike (McKell David), and Leopold (Harrison Osterfield).

The plot will follow a strong female lead, as Bea fights to save her sibling, a choice made by the creator, according to EW.
Tom said: ‘We set out with that intention, why can’t they go into what is predominantly a man’s world and kick a bit of a**?
‘I wanted to make it feel exciting and scary and very, very fresh so these characters are very accessible to a modern audience.’

The series will feature a ‘supernatural element’ which the team have got to battle to save London.
Tom added: ‘The supernatural element brings a kind of Victorian horror to the show that’s very different to what you’d expect in the Sherlock Holmes novels.’
Henry Lloyd-Hughes, best known for his role as Mark Donovan in The Inbetweeners, will star as Sherlock Holmes while sidekick Dr Watson will be played by Line of Duty’s Royce Pierreson.
The crime drama is set to premier on March 26.
