The decision to set a new Sherlock Holmes series in the present day was an inspired one. The writers generally do a fine job of updating Doyle`s original stories and the two main actors are both excellent as well. The second episode of the 3 is perhaps not the strongest but this is a fine collection. The inclusion of the two commentaries is also very welcome.
This is essential for any Holmes fan! Even if you are not a big Sherlock Holmes fan this modern day take on Holmes is truly brilliant. Cumberbatch and Freeman are great for the roles, as a consequence this is one of the best takes on the Holmes saga you will see. You won't be disappointed by this, pick up your copy now!
Great series, Holmes is wonderfully strange and Watson imminently likeable. The mystery's are well paced with twists and turns before building to an appropriate climax. This is a thinking persons Holmes rather than a Bourne/Bond like superhero. Great series highly recommend.
The best series ever... if you have not seen it yet, then what are you waiting for and losing time reading this? get it now!
I bought the blu-ray DVD of Sherlock - Series 1 from China, which took 11 days for shipment. And it is really perfect! I love the series, it is amazing.
Brilliant Blu-ray containing the 3 part mini-series and the unseen pilot. Excellent must see series, definitely recommend to anyone.
This is an excellent mini-series to watch. If you love Sherlock you will love this. Non stop action and brilliant humour
Shoerlock Holmes in our times is another move of putting heroes in a new role. This time with two brilliant characters playing the roles more than perfect. Sad that so far it is only a mini series, hoping that they will soon give us a sequel.
