Storyline

Wounded in Afghanistan while in the Army, Dr. John Watson returns to contemporary London and, through a mutual acquaintance, becomes a flatmate at Mrs. Hudson's 221B Baker Street apartment with brilliant if eccentric private investigator Sherlock Holmes. There have been three identical apparent suicides, and Inspector Lestrade asks for Sherlock's intervention over the fourth, the suspicious death of Jennifer Wilson. As she lay dying she wrote 'Rache' upon the floor and Sherlock deduces that this is not just the incomplete name of her stillborn daughter "Rachel" of many years earlier but the password of her mobile phone. This leads Sherlock to confront a terminally ill serial killer who slays people, in part, to show superiority over the rest of society, and who is determined to make Sherlock his next victim.

Very good, something for everyone.
6 November 2015 | by (Baker Street 221B, London, England) – See all my reviews

The show is very good and well-made. Every detail is thought through, and it is very interesting to follow the mind of Sherlock through every moment of the series. Even if you don't like the plot or the acting, then the beautiful scenes of London by day, evening and night will create a atmosphere, you might never forget. In Sherlock you will find something for everyone - whether its the plot, the actors or just the classic story of a detective and his helper. Benedict Cumberbatch is a great choice of actor, and with Martin Freeman on the side they create a powerful match. The long, slim silhouette that is Sherlock next to the small and grey Dr. Watson is a vision you will always remember.
