Excellent modern adaptation of a classic character and stories. Benedict Cumberbatch has just the right mix of 'oddness' to portray the brilliant but eccentric Sherlock, yet with an engaging side that keeps you engaged with both the principal characters. It is quite 'dark' at times, so have a look yourself and choose your age range before letting younger children watch.

Recommended.

A triumphant updating, Holmes and Watson now very much part of the twenty first century - Holmes with his laptop and texts, Watson with his blogs. Inventive, witty and wonderful viewing.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are superb in the central roles, Mark Gatiss excellent as brother Mycroft, Rupert Graves a fine Lestrade - he no fool but realizing when help is needed. Full marks to viewers who spot Moriarty when he first appears - another brilliant portrayal, he and Holmes chillingly opposite sides of the same coin.

Gripping adventures (full attention is needed!), great atmosphere. Lots of laughs too. ("Three pipe problems" now involve nicotine patches. "Freak's here!" Lestrade's officer calls out when Holmes arrives at the crime scene. Watson is repeatedly having to correct those who assume he and Holmes are an item.)

3 90 minute episodes, the third with a commentary by Gatiss, Cumberbatch and Freeman (interesting anecdotes). Bonuses include a "behind the scenes" feature and a never before seen hour long pilot. (It fascinates to note how this evolved into the episode eventually shown.)

Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, Holmes addicts both, have here created a masterpiece - no mean achievement in itself but quite staggering when one remembers Moffat is now also masterminding "Doctor Who".

Awesome.

Surprisingly irritating & unengaging. Started going downhill when the villain appeared.
