Season OneDVD - 2010
From Library Staff
By all means, read Doyle's original stories and watch Jeremy Brett's take on the 19th-century Great Detective, but this modern imagining is original, clever... and has Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek: Into the Darkness) and Martin Freeman (Life on Mars), or, for Tolkien fans, Smaug and Bilbo.

QuotesAdd a Quote
Holmes to Watson in "The Great Game:" Ordinary people fill their heads with all kind of rubbish and that makes it hard to get at the stuff that matters.
Sherlock Holmes (to Watson, Lestrade, & Anderson, who are collectively dumbfounded after Holmes' rapid-fire systematic mystery explanation): "Look at you lot -- you're all so vacant. Is it nice not being me? It must be so relaxing."
John: (After Sherlock's explanation-monologue.) Fantastic!
Lestrade: And a Happy New Year(!)
"I love the brilliant ones. Always desperate to be caught." -Sherlock Holmes
Coarse Language: There is exactly one swear word in this series. "Stupid" and "Idiot" are used more frequently.
Violence: People punch and hit and strangle other people. Blood is seen occasionally. Not gory; it's more thrilling than frightening.
