Fans of Sherlock Holmes were winners last night with the return of BBC's contemporary series starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Doctor John Watson. Season Two kicked off with A SCANDAL IN BELGRAVIA. Based on A SCANDAL IN BOHEMIA, Irene Adler becomes a target of Sherlock's investigation as a blackmailing dominatrix (rather as an American actress in the original story).
|Watson and Holmes were called to the Palace.|
Holmes came as is .. in a bed sheet.
The BBC production is fast past so it is easy to get lost in the three separate plot lines. Yet all becomes clear as Sherlock connects the seemingly random events. As a fan of the original story, I was delighted when the produces paid homage to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's vision of Sherlock Holmes. He's still eccentric, irreverent, and cheeky, particularly to his brother Mycroft.
|Irene Adler becomes "that woman".|
The next two episodes modernize THE HOUSE OF THE BASKERVILLES and THE FINAL PROBLEM. And that's a wrap for another year. It's a tease to have only three episodes ... but we take what we can get.

to track the Hound.
