Although I have immensely enjoyed the two Sherlock Holmes films which have come out in recent years, I have always felt, nonetheless, that there is something lacking in Robert Downey Jr.’s portrayal of the world’s only consulting detective. His version seems more for the sake of comedic effect than anything else. So imagine my delight when, upon the recommendation of a friend, I began watching the BBC series Sherlock and discovered just the type of Sherlock Holmes I had imagined while reading Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s books. Sure, this series is a modern take on the Holmes we know and love, but I have yet to find an on screen story line that follows the books any closer. Check the series out! I’m sure it won’t disappoint.
