BBC's Sherlock Holmes has been slammed by viewers for inappropriate pre-watershed images.
The Christmas episode, watched by almost ten million viewers, was aired on on BBC1 from 8.10pm.
The 'inappropriate' scenes included Miss Pulver only wearing diamond earrings, lipstick and heels as she flirted with Holmes, played by Benedict Cumberbatch.
Viewers took to Twitter to vent their outrage: Dominatrix?! Watershed anyone? My ten-year-old was watching that.’
Another said: ‘I don’t think the storyline in Sherlock is pre-watershed suitable.’
A third asked: ‘How was Sherlock on pre-watershed with that slut walking round with no clothes on for most of it?!’
Sherlock returns to BBC One in 2012.
