It would be incredibly easy for Steven Moffat, in the production of the (still amazing, I’m glad to reveal) Sherlock, to slip in some reference to the other big drama in his life, namely Doctor Who, and have us all enjoy a little cross-drama chuckle, a knowing-wink to the audience

I'm still amazed that Arnold did not slip in any reference to his James Bond music in A Scandal In Belgravia when the plot went to "Flight 007".

In May, BBC and 2Entertain Home Entertainment will bring Sherlock: Season Two to Blu-ray shortly after the program's U.S. airing on Masterpiece Theater.

Created by writer Steven Moffat (Doctor Who) and actor Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen), this reimagining of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic literary sleuth stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) as Sherlock Holmes, a socially deficient-but-brilliant detective who, along with his best friend and sidekick Watson (Martin Freeman, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), investigates some of the worst crimes in contemporary London.

In Season Two, Holmes and Watson become immersed in the following ninety-minute mysteries:

A Scandal in Belgravia: Holmes squares off against Irene Adler (Lara Pulver, True Blood), an expert hacker and manipulator whose interest in Sherlock might be more than just intellectual.

The Hounds of Baskerville: This adaptation of Doyle's most famous Holmes story finds the detective and Watson combing through the Dartmoor countryside for a threat with seemingly supernatural powers.

The Reichenbach Fall: As Holmes' fame grows around the world, he draws the ire of diabolical criminal mastermind Jim Moriarty (Andrew Scott, John Adams), thus igniting a deadly confrontation between the two men.

While the BBC has not yet detailed the technical specifications for this two-disc set, the package does contain a number of bonus supplements, including:

Commentaries on A Scandal in Belgravia and The Hounds of Baskerville
Sherlock Uncovered behind-the-scenes featurette
Sherlock: Season Two is expected to street on May 22nd.

Can't wait for the episodes to air. It's getting closer! big grin

I assume there will be a DVD as well? I bought Season 1 on DVD because I didn't have a Blu-Ray player at the time, and it would bug me having Season 1 on DVD but Season 2 on Blu-Ray.

There shouldn't be any reason why not. By the way, if you do have a blu ray player, you might like to know the UK release of Sherlock is region free.

I have a Blu-Ray player now since my brother gave me his PS3, but since the show will also be released here in the US I don't mind waiting.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE




SHERLOCK: SEASON TWO

May 22, 2012



New York; March 16, 2012 - BBC Home Entertainment is bringing your favorite consulting detective back on May 22, 2012 when Sherlock: Season Two hits the streets on Blu-ray and DVD. Benedict Cumberbatch (War Horse, the upcoming Star Trek 2) returns as Holmes and Martin Freeman (The Office, the upcoming The Hobbit) is back as Dr. John Watson in three new 90-minute stories from writers and executive producers Steven Moffat (Doctor Who) and Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen). Inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic tales of the brilliant crime-solving icon, Sherlock: Season Two is a spectacular blend of the 21st century and the original wit and spirit of the mysteries that will have keep you on the edge of your seat. The second season premiered in Canada on February 2, 2012 on BBC Canada, and will launch in the U.S. on May 6, 2012 as part of Masterpiece Mystery! on PBS.

In "A Scandal in Belgravia," the first episode of the new season, Sherlock gets embroiled in the complex plans of the dangerous and desirable Irene Adler (Lara Pulver, True Blood), and finds himself employing every one of his remarkable skills to survive as the unlikely duo square off in a battle of wits...and perhaps emotions. In "The Hounds of Baskerville," the increasingly popular detective and his companion Watson travel to the wilds of Dartmoor to investigate the claims of Henry Knight (Russell Tovey, Being Human) and discover a supernatural beast lurking in the eerie landscape. Meanwhile, Jim Moriarty (Andrew Scott, The Hour) is still out there in the shadows, and is determined to bring Sherlock down - at whatever the cost - in "The Reichenbach Fall." Nothing is what it seems, and nothing will be the same again, when this thrilling season reaches its conclusion.

The first season of Sherlock, now available on DVD and Blu-ray, received 4 primetime Emmy nominations and won a Peabody Award. USA Today called it "...the most unabashedly entertaining new show of the season..." and The New York Times said "The appeal is elementary: good, unpretentious fun, something that's in short supply around here."

Bonus features include:
Audio Commentary for episodes A Scandal in Belgravia and The Hounds of Baskerville
Sherlock Uncovered, a behind-the-scenes featurette

By happy chance I managed to find this thread again, so this bump is in preparation of me receiving the series this week and maybe even smooshing together a couple of coherent thoughts about the show.

Just finished series one and enjoyed it--Moriarty aside--immensely. The humor's there, the flawless chemistry between the leads, and London itself as the important character it should be.

The theme sounds like a cross between Goldsmith's "Our Man Flint" and Grainer's "Omega man" theme. I do like that "Far east" theme often heard when our heroes are on the case and on the move.

Moriarty is played over the top, but that's not what bugs me. He should be a bit older. Instead he appears as though he's got a trust fund and he's unhappy with the amount.

JUST WATCHED the first two

SPOILER ALERT!!!!
"Belgravia" was disappointing frown
way too clever for its own good.
the 'ghost plane" thing was lame and i am really sick of Islamic terrorists being major villians;
as Clive Owen says in CHILDREN OF MEN:
"EVERYTIME A POLITICIAN'S POLL NUMBERS GO DOWN, A BOMB BLOWS UP".

I actually preferred the Irene Adler of the first Downey Holmes film to the one here.
all that stuff with her 'camera phone' - boooring and confusing
The best part of the episode was the [SPOILER ALERT ]; boomerang killing and that was unrelated to the main story![spoiler alert]

HOUND was much better! More like the great first season eps
smile

one to go

Marshall you're a creep! I just watched again Belgravia today and loved the humor and the "new" Irene Adler. I'm as curmudgeonly and reactionary as the next me, but I have enjoyed this new incarnation quite a bit.

Hated What Was Done to Irene Adler, March 28, 2012
By Charity Bishop "Film Fanatic"This review is from: Sherlock: Season Two (DVD)

"I love these modern interpretations of the classic character created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in the 1880's. This is the same Sherlock Holmes that stalked those foggy London streets, albeit a bit ruder, but now he has a cell phone!

Where through subsequent viewings of this episode, I managed to untangle my initial horrified reaction from my ability to be impartial, I must say that my first time through the season premiere was a bit... uncomfortable. Not only has series creator and head writer Steven Moffat taken one of the more remarkable women in Doyle's stories and regressed her feminism and intelligence back a couple of centuries, he has also made that first hour and a half a bit rough going if you plan on having your family in the room. Irene is a bisexual dominatrix that spends an entire scene in the buff (the camera is careful, but we still get an eyefull).

My feelings about this season are varied. It has some truly wonderful moments but I'm a bit torn by the Irene Adler fiasco. Moffat, who is usually known for his tight plots, goes out on a limb with a complicated and confusing episode that is not quite up to par with the second episode, in which Mark Gatiss modernizes the most famous of all Holmes mysteries, The Hound of the Baskervilles. Now that is a brilliant hour and a half of television, with enough references to the original to please fans but an independent conclusion all its own, so do not anticipate things turning out the same way after all."



i think this AMAZON.COM review is spot on!

Anyone have any idea when the next series is being filmed/screened?
Last year it was filmed in summer into autumn and aired in January this year.

Favorite comedic bit in "Belgravia":

Mycroft: Shut up, Mrs. Hudson!

Sherlock: [outraged] Mycroft!

Mycroft: [to Mrs. Hudson] Apologies.

Sherlock: Yes, but do in fact shut up, Mrs. Hudson.

LOL!
