Did anyone watch it? I thought it was awesome, it was very funny and can't wait for tonight's episode. Three episodes isn't enough though (I know they're really long though) I hope they make more.
For anyone who doesn't know, it's a modern day setting of Sherlock Holmes. I've never read any of the Conan-Doyle books (only seen the Guy Richie film) so I don't know how much they've changed. Watson is still in it, they still live in Baker Street and (without giving the first ep away) he still has enemies.
I thought they were both amazing!In the first one he fell for it, he was going to take the pill! I'm someone who then shouts at the T.V -Don't do it Sherlock!- I liked the Sherlock Holmes film, but i love the fact the episodes are set in modern times, it relates to todays issues more than the older ones.
I loved the line -Is this a real eye? I found it in the microwave-
I was going to watch it, then I realised that I really couldn't be bothered. At all. In the slightest. I watch enough TV on Sundays as it is. Well, now Top Gear's finished... No, one hour of Young, Dumb and Living Off Mum is more than enough.
He actually really reminded me of Matt Smith, but I think it was the writing more than anything. He said something like "What did I miss, what did I miss?" And Matt Smith says that at least once. That, and him being an eccentric genius. Apparently Sherlock Holmes was the inspiration for Dr. Who though (according to my Dad, but I'm not sure where he got that from.)
Hey guys, if you're spotting Doctor Who similarities, it's because Stephen Moffat wrote the script for Sherlock as well as the new Doctor Who! I have to say, I've read all the Arthur Conan Doyle books so I'm a bit of a purist - if it ain't got bustles, it ain't got a thing! But I loved this new version - especially this Sundays episode, where Watson grapples the evils of the self-checkout machine LOVE. Sheer win. Especially as i've come close to cursing the automated machines myself a couple of times...
It's been confirmed for a second series! Well, pretty much http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/201...cond-series-bbc They're deciding on how many and when. I hope they make more than three this time. I can't wait, even though it will probably be ages until it's actually on. I think they filmed the first series at the beginning of 2009.
