Sherlock - Season 1Sherlock Holmes was always a modern man - its the world that got old. Co-created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, Sherlock is back as he should be: edgy, contemporary, difficult and dangerous. Sherlock can tell a software designer by his tie or an airline pilot by his thumb, he has a unique analytical brain unlike anyone else in the world and has found the best way to stave off boredom is by solving crimes. When a chance encounter brings soldier John Watson into Sherlock';;;s life, it';;;s apparent the two men couldn';;;t be more different, but Sherlock';;;s intellect coupled with John';;;s pragmatism soon forges an unbreakable alliance as they investigate a series of baffling cases together.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "Sherlock - Season 1"
Serena Davies Daily Telegraph (UK)February 17, 2017
Sherlock worked because it was having fun. It also let down the po-faced pretence that the suffocating abundance of TV detective shows often labour under: that the detective actually cares about the victims.
Andrew Williams QuickflixMarch 28, 2014
This irrepressibly ingenious show had me enraptured from the get-go.
Matthew Gilbert Boston GlobeOctober 24, 2010
A strange, fascinating, and sometimes brilliant contemporary take on the father of forensic crime-solving.
David Hinckley New York Daily NewsOctober 24, 2010
"Sherlock" is the rare classic drama that not only survives being dressed up with a new suit, but looks darn good in it.
Verne Gay NewsdayOctober 24, 2010
Quite a remarkable feat here - they've created something unique and pleasurable where so many have trod before.
Rachel Michaels PopMattersOctober 24, 2010
The change is less disquieting than you might think, as Holmes and Watson have always been thoroughly modern men.
Ellen Gray Philadelphia Daily NewsOctober 24, 2010
Purists may scoff, but I'm more than a little enchanted.
Maureen Ryan Huffington PostOctober 24, 2010
This series does what you'd want a modern-day Sherlock Holmes series to do: It acknowledges that he would use technology to assist him in his prodigious feats of deduction, yet it stays true to the characters that Arthur Conan Doyle created.
Rob Owen Pittsburgh Post-GazetteOctober 24, 2010
Has a zippy energy that can be attributed to the writing and Mr. Cumberbatch's riveting, gonzo performance.
David Rooney Hollywood ReporterOctober 24, 2010
This is superior sleuth TV.
