Emmys: 'Sherlock' Star's Purse Stolen While She Was Onstage

The show picked up best TV movie, but Mary Watson returned to her seat afterward to find her belongings swiped.

It's not quite a crime of Sherlock proportions, but still enough to have one of its stars fuming.

When the hit BBC show's episode The Abominable Bride picked up the Emmy for best TV movie, Amanda Abbington — better known to Sherlock fans as Mary Watson — went off to collect the statuette with her co-stars and do the necessary press. But on returning to her seat, she found her purse, phone and driver's license gone.

Naturally, with Benedict Cumberbatch otherwise occupied, she turned to Twitter to outline her rage (and possibly look for wannabe detectives).
