Love letter to the detective and Japan
12 September 2018 | by chriskeizurSee all my reviews

Miss Sherlock is an interesting take on the classic tales we all know. The series moves along at a brisk pace, the mysteries are fun to unravel alongside the lead detective and everything is well-shot.

It may not be a perfect show, but anyone who is a fan of the BBC Sherlock or the novels should be engrossed. And there are some unique camera techniques throughout the episodes that lend a dynamism to the whole proceedings.

Definitely give the series a shot
