For all the Sherlock Holmes fans out there, there is a must see series from the BBC called Sherlock. It is a modern twist to the old school, fun Sherlock Holmes novels. There are three episodes in the short season but each one lasts 1 ½ hours.
This series is set in modern day London where this new Sherlock is able to read people and situations through the “science of deduction.” Sherlock Holmes is played by Benedict Cumberbatch who does an amazing job in portraying all of Holmes’ little quirks and makes you feel for the guy while at the same time not like him.
Doctor John Watson is an Afghanistan war vet who has recently returned from a tour and is looking for a place to stay and a new “flat mate.” Watson and Holmes cross paths by way of a mutual friend and the rest is history. Martin Freeman plays Dr. Watson and does a great job in showing the ways that Watson and Holmes do not get along but in the end make a great duo.
The first series of Sherlock follows some of the lesser known stories from the canon of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This well written modern-day script takes you for a ride through the world of Sherlock, and it’s a ride that you won’t forget.
