User Reviews

 
I'm English, I've read all the Sherlock Holmes books, seen all the movies/TV programs. I like this adaptation.
5 October 2012 | by Bobbins1000See all my reviews

I think it's very difficult for people to accept change, in any form. If this is the case for you, and you love the old style Sherlock Holmes...you'll hate this.

However, if you are willing to "go with" the changes made in this adaptation you will find a clever, well written, well acted crime drama.

I can't get enough of Sherlock Holmes fiction or crime drama for that matter. I truly hope that people can accept it for what it is and it carries on for many series.

Matt from England gives this a thumbs up!
