Storyline

In this modernized version of the Conan Doyle characters, using his detective plots, Sherlock Holmes lives in early 21st century London and acts more cocky towards Scotland Yard's detective inspector Lestrade because he's actually less confident. Doctor Watson is now a fairly young veteran of the Afghan war, less adoring and more active. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Watson's P226R is likely meant to be his army service pistol. Although the P226 is used in the British Military, it is mainly used by Special Forces and it is rare to be held by Infantry, where the Browning Hi-Power or the Glock 17 Gen 3, which is phasing out both handguns for its high magazine capacity and reliability, are more common.

Skip the 4th season. Keep your memories happy
16 January 2017 | by samyoung-82648See all my reviews

If I was to rate the Sherlock Holmes series on season 4 alone, I would give this 0/10 if possible. Benedict Cumberbatch (Holmes) was barely tolerable and the new surprise character was appalling. Without giving away too much, they draw a parallel to who this character is "meant to be like". Sad to say that the performance wasn't even in the ballpark. I found myself biting my fist to dull the pain.

Season 1 and 2 were knock outs and deserve high praise. They were overall, superbly written and acted, well paced and suspenseful. Season 3 experimented and was somewhat of a hit and miss as it shifted to a character drama with broader appeal.

The writers really should have stopped at season 3. Moriarty was butchered in season 4 with a huge fall from acting grace. It's left a stain on most of the cast members. If you love the series, please, PLEASE skip season 4. It doesn't even feel like the same show anymore. It reminds me of one of those D grade TV shows that airs during the day when TV ratings are rock bottom.

Season 1: 9/10 Season 2: 9/10 Season 3: 7/10 Season 4: 0/10 Overall: 6/10
