Micah Erlich hires Holmes to solve urgently the robbery of diamonds in David Batonvert's Manhattan exchange from his world-reputed security firm's top-range vault model, the 'impregnable' Leviathan, before the news wrecks the manufacturer. Both men remember it was actually cracked once four years ago by a brilliant team of four, who were tried and jailed, but draw different conclusions concerning a connection, which Holmes has to revise while his investigation progresses with the help of his own consultants. Meanwhile he helps Watson deal with her unexpectedly visiting family rather then cancel her buddy job with him. Written by KGF Vissers

Relations to the original stories
25 May 2013 | by fictionheartSee all my reviews

I can really see the relations to the original Holmes stories when I watch this series. Not the stories overall so much as the logic and the personalities of the characters. I love all of the original Sherlock Holmes stories so much, and I really like how they incorporate some of the lesser quotes that are still important in the stories. I've seen plot similarities in some of the stories to some of the episodes, but not nearly to the point where they're just doing a TV version of the texts, which makes it a lot more interesting this way. Having Watson as Lucy Liu is awesome, and I love how they incorporate the other characters too. I also find it interesting that they chose to start with Gregson rather than Lestrade. Still, it's awesome in my opinion. I even like it more so than BBC's Sherlock.
