Sherlock Holmes can tell a software designer by his tie and an airline pilot by his thumb. He has a unique analytical brain and, unlike anyone else in the world, he staves off boredom by solving crimes. When a chance encounter brings soldier John Watson into Sherlock's life, it's apparent the two men couldn't be more different, but Sherlock's intellect coupled with John's pragmatism soon forge an unbreakable alliance.
A Study in Pink, The Blind Banker and The Great Game
Sherlock and Watson return… Embroiled in the complex plans of the dangerous and desirable Irene Adler, Sherlock needs every one of his remarkable skills to survive, and an invitation to the wilds of Dartmoor brings our terrified heroes face to face with the supernatural. Meanwhile Sherlock’s nemesis, Moriarty, is out there in the shadows and is determined to bring Sherlock down – whatever the cost.

Many elements of the original stories remain, such as Holmes' Baker Street address, his violin playing and his arch enemy, Moriarty. Other elements are transfigured cleverly to reflect modern day society and events, such as the recent return of the injured John Watson from the War in Afghanistan, as opposed to the Anglo-Afghan War of the late 19th Century. Instead of keeping a journal of his adventures, Dr. Watson writes an internet blog. There are some very neat touches that tie in the modern day sleuth to Conan Doyle's Victorian one, which fans of the original books should have great fun spotting. Holmes becomes inextricably linked to the deerstalker by the media after picking up the hat simply to hide himself from photographers, but hates and derides the association thereafter. His addiction in `Sherlock' is to cigarettes, and gone are the allusions to opium usage. Each episode is based on a story by Conan Doyle, but brought forward cleverly and thoughtfully to the 21st Century. For example `The Hounds of Baskerville' (Series 2, episode 2) centres on mysterious sightings of a large beast near `Baskerville', an M.O.D research facility on Dartmoor.Read more ›
This show is a family favourite in my house, with each of us trying to be the first to correctly guess who did what and why, although the show is so well orchestrated that we rarely get it. When Sherlock reveals exactly what happened and explains how he knows its always a case of 'Of course! Why didn't I think of that?!'
Each series contains 3 great 90-min episodes, loosely based on actual Holmes books, however don't be put off if you think 'I've read the book so I know what's going to happen' - trust me when I say you most probably won't! These episodes can also be watched time and again as each time you watch it you spot something new that you missed first time round. First series are 'A Study in Pink', 'The Blind Banker' and 'The Great Game', and the second series are 'A Scandal in Belgravia', 'The Hounds of Baskerville' and 'The Reichenbach Fall'.
With some brilliant actors such as Benedict Cumberbatch (Holmes), Martin Freeman (Watson), Andrew Scott (Moriarty) and Rupert Graves (Lestrade) to name but a few, and some cracking scripts, this show is a definite must see.Read more ›
First and foremost is the script Moffatt, Thompson and Gatiss seamlessly made the script accessible to Sherlock newbies whilst simultaneously adding in one-line references to make Sherlockians snicker, anyone who has read the books can tell that they're fans of the originals. By bringing Sherlock into the 21st century they have also managed to remain completely true to Conan-Doyle's books whilst giving the franchise and new and exciting change. Sherlock just fits beautifully into the 21st century, John Watson is invalided home from Afghanistan - just as in the original. Whilst the Victorian setting added to the beauty of the stories I think the focus was always meant to be on the characters and their interactions, and the writers to just that. Sherlock, as Conan-Doyle, was at the forefront of the science of the time and Sherlock using a mobile phone or the internet is doing the same for the modern age. The writing is - simply put - a joy to behold.
Then there's the acting. Benedict Cumberbatch is, as always, exemplary and he was born to play this role, keeping Sherlock both true to the originals and just on the side of likeable. Over the series Cumberbatch beautifully portrays Sherlock's slow shift to becoming more human and by the end of series two he had me in tears. Now I can barely remember a time when Cumberbatch wasn't a household name!Read more ›
