Sherlock Returns ….

I am a HUGE Sherlock Holmes fan, both of the books written by Arthur Conan Doyle, and also the tv series. The late Jeremy Brett is my favourite televison Holmes. I don’t think any actor before him or since captured the character like he did. Having said that, I love the modern take on our Victorian detective and actors Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Dr John Watson do total justice to the roles.

Holmes returns in a New Year’s Day special airing on the BBC called “The Abominable Bride”. Its not one of the original case stories, but instead comes from a remark in The Musgrave Ritual. Holmes is looking through some old case files and makes a throwaway reference to the case of “Ricoletti of the club foot and his abominable wife”. The extended trailer was released this week. Have a look and tune in for the 90 minute show.

  1. I'll have to give that a watch … I'm pretty sure we get a BBC channel in our satellite package. What do you think of Cumberbatch looks-wise? Apparently he's almost as popular as Hiddleston – at least that's the rumours I've heard. I'm rather slow to find these things out. 🙂
