So we have a Dr. Watson (Martin Freeman) who blogs and a Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) who is rather fast at texting and uses the Internet as much as he uses his mind. I have to say that it takes guts to re-re-invent Sherlock Holmes. Guy Richie recently made Sherlock Holmes cool again with his blockbuster movie starring Robert Downey Jr., so it was interesting that the makers of the BBC series Sherlock decided to take another shot at the master detective.
It has pretty much all the elements that you find in the books of Sir Arthur C. Doyle. The famous residence, the typical Sherlock wit, the seemingly impossible to crack cases, Lestrade, mobile phones, computers, nicotine patches ... Oi! Wait a minute. Yes we have our first modern Sherlock.
