StarringBenedict CumberbatchMartin FreemanMark GatissAndrew Scott

Directed byPaul McGuiganCoky GiedroycEuros Lyn, Toby HaynesNick HurranJeremy LoveringColm McCarthy

Written byMark GatissSteven MoffatSteve ThompsonArthur Conan Doyle (novel)

Year: 2010-2014

Plot: 21st century rendition of the oldie but goodie. The famous sleuth is a highly functional sociopath (according to his own reckoning) with a mind working like a well wound-up clock. Dr. Watson is a veteran of the Afghan war. Together they are irresistibly smart and cute like a litter of pups.

Pros: The writers live up to the challenge of modernizing Sir Arthur Conan Doyle‘s greatest hits. We’re positively Cumberbatched.

ConsAndrew Scott‘s Moriarty is about as demonic as a box of talcum powder. The pretend death of Sherlock did not work in the novels and, similarly, doesn’t really work in the series.
