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.

Trivia

Sherlock kissing Mrs. Hudson on the cheek wasn't scripted. Benedict Cumberbatch had known Una Stubbs since he was very young, and it was his reaction on being able to work with someone who was like a mother to him. See more »

Goofs

As Sherlock and John leave 221B Baker Street to catch a waiting cab, the camera crane used for the second part of the shot is reflected in the rear of the taxi as it departs. See more »

Dr John Watson: You just wrote, "still has trust issues".

Review of A Study in Pink
5 November 2015 | by (Copenhagen) – See all my reviews

We are in present time with good old Sherlock Holmes. This modernized way of presenting the most brilliant detective of all time is brilliant in every way. We can easily relate to the series because of the modern type of crimes and characters. The dry humour of Sherlock fits very well to the present times comedians. The dark and gloomy colours are a great way to set a thrilling scene. Cumberbatch is fitting perfectly as an arrogant, brainy Sherlock Holmes in the modern world. He is tall, sneaky and has a glint in the eye like he knows something others have no idea about, which they often don't. After watching the first episode I just wanted to move on to the second instantly.
