I began watching the 21st Century adventures of Sherlock Holmes after reading reviews in the press and after one episode- I was hooked. The casting is flawless: Benedict Cumberbatch is perfectly placed as the consulting detective with Martin Freeman as Dr.Watson who has massive respect despite Holmes' ecentricity.
The stories are well written as they are as clever as they make Sherlock out to be, I think the humour mixes in well with the writing and story arches and Cumberbatch has the best of the quips and the comeback lines in the first episode- a Study in Pink.
The second episode advances Holmes' abilities and character as a detective and just how quickly he is able to solve these mysteries.
The 3rd episode is the very best out of the 3 that were broadcast and it is a pulse racing experience that leaves the story on a cliff hanger.
I am looking forward to the next batch of episodes when they get produced as the BBC are onto a winner with this series and in my honest opinion- this is the first decent franchise they have produced since Walking with Dinosaurs.
Because of this Franchise- my faith in TV has been renewed again.
