Trivia:
In this new series Dr. Watson used to be a Captain (and medical doctor) serving with the 5th Northumberland Fusiliers deployed to Afghanistan. The 5th Northumberland Fusiliers did indeed serve in Afghanistan in the Second Afghan-Anglo war (1878-1880). The first story of the old Sherlock Holmes series took place in 1881. The 5th Northumberland Fusiliers, however, was renamed into the "The Northumberland Fusiliers" in the year 1881 (no 5th left in title), which means the modern Dr. Watson service with the 5th Northumberlands is a nod to its old heritage. The former 5th Northumberlands evolved into its last formation named "Royal Northumberland Fusiliers" and was deactivated in 1968.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Throughout the works of Conan Doyle, and the writers who have translated his works for other media, Sherlock Holmes is shown as using "deductive logic."

Deductive logic reasons from the general to the particular. The bare-bones deductive argument is the syllogism "All men are mortal; Socrates is a man; therefore, Socrates is a mortal." It's amazing how often people screw this up and argue something like, "All men are mortal; Socrates is mortal; therefore, Socrates is a man," which doesn't logically follow. That would be like saying, "All men are mortal; my kid's hamster is mortal; therefore, my kid's hamster is a man."

Inductive logic reasons from particular instances to general theories and is the method used to confirm scientific theories. If you observe enough apples falling from trees, you will conclude that apples always fall down, instead of up or sideways. You might then form a more general hypothesis that includes other falling bodies, like pears. Thus is the progress of science.

In the annals of literature, no character is as renowned for his powers of "deduction" as the intrepid Sherlock Holmes, but the way Holmes operates is not generally by using deductive logic at all. He really uses inductive logic. First, he carefully observes the situation, then he generalizes from his prior experience, using analogy and probability.See more »

Good Sunday TV, 26 July 2010
Author: logans_place from Andorra

I am surprised that this is currently 5/10. It was really quite good with a fast pace and a real sense of time and place. Nothing like the latest movie. The story was adequate with Cumberbatch doing a great job as Sherlock. This should develop into another BBC hit as it has the hallmarks of a good quality and effective entertainment without the violence or swearing of popular shows on TV today. In fact I am surprised it is not on earlier as kids are just as likely to appreciate the show as the adults to which it is aimed. I was impressed and that it not that easy, having seen Inception last week and been unimpressed it is nice to have a show where I don't need to pick it apart afterwards.

In short, fun show that should run and run.
