Doctor Watson moves in with the eccentric Sherlock Holmes and they get a case to solve. A young heiress seeks Holmes' help when she feels threatened by her brutish stepfather after her sister dies under mysterious circumstances.
Probably the best version of Sherlock Holmes in the last twenty years. Igor Petrenko is totally believable as a young eclectic genius trapped in a world that cannot feed his need for intellectual stimulus quickly enough. he is fragile, nervous, shy, brave, infatuated and clever all at the same time - only the Russians could pull that off.
The complex relationship between Sherlock; the aspiring but plodding writer, Dr Watson, torn into shreds both physically and emotionally through his experience in Afghanistan - and the extraordinary subliminal attraction of Mrs Hudson draws you into an insular world more closely confined, more inexplicable, more intriguing than any previous series.
Terrific production values, supporting cast, complex and fascinating stories - what more could you want. This is gold dust.
