It's official !

Can't wait to see the splendid Mr Cumberbatch in full flow again.

Awesome! I've been anxiously awaiting the second season (or series, as they're called in the UK). The first aired here in the States about three months after its UK debut, so hopefully the second will air about the same, or possibly earlier. I really can't wait to see what's in store with these episodes considering they're based on the three most well-known Holmes stories. I only wish there were more than three episodes, but I'll take what I can get. And I'll take this show of the Guy Ritchie/Robert Downey Jr. movies any day.

Good good! Very much looking forward to it...

For anyone interested, Series One is available on DVD - including the unbroadcast Pilot episode (a shorter, snappier version of A Study in Pink) - from Amazon.co.uk for less than a fiver. Bar. Gain.

I'm looking forward to the new series, though I hope that the Moriarty we saw last series *isn't* the real Moriarty because, frankly, he sucked big time.

No mention of this since sunday's first episode, which was usual excellent standard.

Looking through the Tv guide, anyone who missed it can see repeat on BBC3 Saturday 7th at 7pm.

"Sherlock" came back with a bang on Sunday. Absolutely wonderful....totally engrossing ....and hugely enjoyable.

Benedict Cumberbatch gets better with every outing and Martin Freeman is equally good as Watson.

Such clever writing - done justice to by a perfect cast. Well done everyone !

On to Sunday, and Mr Tovey and the Hounds !!!

Another (hopefully?) future series made it's debut on ITV this week, and this too was beautifully done and will make an excellent series.

"Endeavour" was a prequel to "Inspector Morse", set in 1965,with Shaun Evans doing a splendid job as the young rookie Morse, and Roger Allam stealing every scene as the gruff Inspector, showing him the ropes.

Don't miss this one, and the DVD is out next week.

Here's to the future series.

Speaking of other detectives, how is the Kenneth Branagh version of "Wallander"? I've only seen the trailer, but it looks not-too bad...

episode 2 was pretty good last night.

Nice twist on the baskerville hound story.

Lots of use of the main theme orchestrated in various ways last night - was the first time I really noticed the underscore in the episodes.

I think the saturday re-run is still happening in case anyone missed it.

Both episodes have been excellent.
Brilliantly acted, suspenseful, convoluted, funny as hell. Great to look at and good music.

Pity it's all gonna be over next week.

The sherlock review by a columnist in last week's Sun newspaper said it was the best thing on TV and said enjoy Cumberbatch performances while they last before he gets whisked off to Hollywood and never seen again on TV.

Two days later they announced his Star Trek gig.

Doesnt take much smarts to realise he is going to be a big star.

Just caught up with "Hounds".... another brilliant, and very, very clever re-conception of a very well known story.

Terrific performances from Cumberbatch and Freeman, and Russell Tovey was also excellent.
What a versatile actor he is.

On to ( for the time being!) - The Final Solution, next week :

I doubt he's going to be a big star but look forward to seeing him more in films like Nick Frost, Idris Elba, Simon Pegg, Peter Capaldi and of course his co-star Martin Freeman.

I think it is a bit early for him to be in the Gary Oldman/character actor in loads of film realm but time will tell.

Although Gary Oldman was clearly better than the people around him in his early TV and British film productions, such as The Firm and Meantime, Cumberbatch is a better actor with greater presence than Oldman had at that stage in his career.

So you are right - we will see.

Being reported this week that series three of Sherlock has been commissioned. As per Dragon's announcement in other thread with Cumberbatch talking about Star Trek.

However, according to stories this week and quotes from writer Moffat it seems series three was always in the bag and had been agreed when series two was commissioned.

also Martin Freeman said: The plan is we will do a third series. There’s certainly more to do and I would like to do it... It’s one of the few things I’ve done ever really where I think ‘I’d like to do a lot of these’. It’s a very nice way to spend your time.”


Co writer Mark Gatiss admitted that there were ‘millions’ of Conan-Doyle’s ideas that he wants to bring to the screen. “One of the joys about doing this show, from the start, is that for something that’s a 120-odd years old and has been filmed so much, there are huge chunks of it which have never been filmed. You come across them all the time – there are lots of famous stories, lots of less famous stories. But what we’ve done from the beginning is have this kind of ‘magpie’ approach to it, like the Basil Rathbone films. We say, ‘We’ll have that bit, and that bit, and that bit’, because some of the stories have tremendous openings and very perfunctory endings.”

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.

However, this particular wink seems to have been entirely inadvertant.

Watch this, from The Hounds of Baskerville, which was shown on BBC One last night, and see if you can spot a familiar time-and-space-travelling device:
