Sherlock Holmes is a series created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887. Sherlock has been made into movies and shows many times. In 2010, BBC One released a new TV show based on this series simply called Sherlock. This show was created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss.
This show stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Dr. John Watson. Recurring cast members include Rupert Graves as DI Greg Lestrade, Andrew Scott as Jim Moriarty, Mark Gatiss as Mycroft Holmes, and Una Stubbs as Mrs. Hudson.
Sherlock is a contemporary take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes series. This show follows Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson’s many adventures. Sherlock Holmes is an astounding character. Sherlock’s partner is Dr. John Watson. Dr. Watson is a war veteran who participated in the Afghanistan war.
The cast for this show is amazing. Benedict Cumberbatch portrays Holmes perfectly. Martin Freeman also completely becomes his character. These two actors work beautifully together. Their banters and comments really make the show feel real. The other actors also work to give the show an authentic feel.
Each season of Sherlock consist of three, ninety minute episodes. There are two seasons as of now and one in production. The fourth season has been recently announced. There is a total of six episodes: “A Study in Pink,” “The Blind Banker,” The Great Game,” “A Scandal in Belgravia,” “The Hounds of Baskerville,” and, “The Reichenbach Fall“.
Sherlock is a marvelous show. The show takes place in the 21st century and has been much modernized. Sherlock and John use recent technology like iPhones and laptops.
My favorite episode of this entire series is The Reichenbach Fall. This episode takes your heart and rips it out. So many things happen in this episode. This show is perfect and I fell in love with it from the first time I watched it.
