I got the DVD of the four post-pilot episodes from the library. These are not just re-warmed Sherlock Holmes stories, and that's a good thing. The plots and the atmosphere is often quite Gothic, with supernatural elements pulling the stories away from standard murder mysteries. As a fan of both Gothic horror and crime mysteries, I recommend them for the atmosphere and for the view of the harsh underbelly of Victorian England. I'm not a big fan of the actor playing Doyle, but that's not enough to take away from the positives in the various characters. The actors who play Watson in the Holmes stories never satisfy me either, so perhaps I'm too critical in that manner.
