This is an essential purchase for any fan of BBC's "Sherlock". Sure, a little of the information will not be new, some of the introductory stuff seemingly gleaned from various interviews with the cast and crew which can be found on the DVD/Bluray sets. But, there is a wealth of new material here and it's such a handsome package, filled to the brim with great behind the scenes images, script excerpts and e-mail fragments. This is the book every serious "Sherlock" fan has been waiting for, streets ahead of "Sherlock: The Casebook" or the various unofficial publications that tell you nothing new. Buy this one now!

I haven't made it through the entire book yet, but am very much enjoying the MANY photos and blow-by-blow account of how this remarkable show came to fruition. I've been a Sherlock Holmes aficionado for more than 45 years. I recall hearing about this modernized version of my beloved characters in late 2008. I was positive I'd hate it. I always believed Holmes and Watson belonged firmly in Victorian/Edwardian eras. I never liked the updated versions with Basil Rathbone (although I admired the actor's work and he did truly look like Sidney Paget's Holmes). The definitive Holmes of my era was Jeremy Brett in the 80s and 90s Granada series. I didn't believe any other actor could rival Brett in my head or heart.

Then I watched Benedict Cumberbatch take the role--and the world--by storm. He's marvelous. And Martin Freeman's John Watson is the absolute best (and I'm a girl who adored Edward Hardwicke's Watson, who more than held his own against the flamboyant Brett)! Well, Freeman and Cumberbatch are just amazing--their chemistry sizzled right from the start. What a brilliant bit of casting! Even when storylines fail a bit, the camaraderie between Cumberbatch and Freeman keeps me hooked and is sufficient to carry through. "Sherlock Chronicles" takes us through Series/Season Three.

Brilliant book to dip into. Packed full of snippets of information and insights into every aspect of the production. Fascinating for students of TV drama not just Sherlock fans.

This is a fantastic companion to BBC's "Sherlock," one I've been waiting a long time for. The wait was worth it. Yes, there are lots of fun pictures of the creators, cast, and crew, but the book also provides great insight into the making of this excellent show and even includes snippets of deleted scenes. I highly recommend this for fans of the show.

Excellent companion to the BBC Sherlock series. Plenty of great pictures and insights into the the plotlines. Interesting to compare the overview of Benedict's performance to the reviews within 'Benedict Cumberbatch In Transition' and 'Transition Completed'.

I'm Canadian, and I was very worried about how fast this would ship, but it was extremely fast! The book itself is also amazing, it was great to read about how the episodes were made and the reasoning behind them :)

The book is phenomenal. Arrived much quicker than expected. Only issue was that the dust cover was torn at one corner. I've never had damaged merchandise before, so I'm hoping it was a fluke.

This is an amazing, high quality book. A must for any BBC Sherlock fan! It was worth the 3 1/2 week wait from the UK to California.
