'Sherlock': Lara Pulver Revs Up 'Masterpiece,' Now Wants to Tackle 'Top Gear'
Tonight's cuppa: Decaf Irish breakfast tea
On Sunday, May 6, the 21st-century reimaging of "Sherlock" returns for a second season on PBS' "Masterpiece Mystery!" with "A Scandal in Belgravia," loosely inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic "Sherlock Holmes" story "A Scandal in Bohemia."
Asked how she thinks she'd do on the track, Pulver says, "I'm a pretty good driver. I'm not sure if I'd be the fastest, but I'm a good maneuverer in and out of traffic. I know back streets and stuff in London. I'm not sure how I'd fare on an open track."
Of course, if you live in Los Angeles, you have to have a car, but new arrival Pulver had a challenge.
"I drive a BMW, just a 3-Series, coupe," she says. "It's cute. It's black. I didn't have any credit history in this country. You know how difficult it was for me to lease a vehicle. It was literally between BMW, and I can't remember what the other company was that wouldn't even look at me, to let me a car."
