Fans have reacted after Paul Weller made a quick and mysterious cameo appearance in last night’s episode of ‘Sherlock’.
Eagle-eye fans may have noticed the quick appearance from the Jam turned Modfather solo icon, when he played a dead ‘Viking’ lying on the floor of Sherlock’s home of 221B Baker Street during a montage at the end of the episode.

Weller has long been friends with ‘Sherlock’ actor Martin Freeman, with ‘The Office’ star who plays Watson also starred in Weller’s video for ‘Pick It Up’.
Meanwhile, Weller also appears on The Stone Foundation’s new single ‘Your Balloon Is Rising‘ – having produced their new album ‘Street Rituals’.
“Paul contacted us at the start of 2016 after hearing our last record,” said Stone Foundation’s Neil Jones. “He wanted to know if we’d like to get involved with a demo he’d been working on and we obviously grasped the opportunity with both hands. ‘The Limit of a Man’ was born out of those early exchanges and from that point onwards we never looked back”.
