Based on Arthur Conan Doyle’s works
Sherlock is the most popular BBC show based on the bestselling short selling published during the Victorian age. I have read Arthur Conan Doyle’s version which had absolutely no connection with the modern world whatsoever. I am a big fan of Robert Downey Jr’s version, though the second part “Sherlock Holmes: the game of shadows” was a big disappointment, especially the second half. For the last 5 years, I came across many forums and reviews which talked about how brilliant Benedict Cumberbatch is as Holmes and that he outdid RDJ. I could not bring myself into believing them, as a fan of RDJ, and due to the fact that Benedict’s version takes place in the 21st century. After being in an endless cacophony of reviews and hype, I watched Sherlock: the abominable bride but it wasn’t just as impressive as I have mentioned in my review. Even then, the hype refused to die down in social media and eventually, after a lot of hesitation, I went on to buy all 3 seasons of Sherlock.
And the result is….
Okay, that was a joke. Fangirl should never dominate the critic.
I enjoyed BBC Sherlock so much that I watch it every now and then. The series have all the elements from stupendous acting, fast pacing, suspense, humor, and dialogue-oriented scenarios which resulted in a cult phenomenon.
Since Sherlock is a series, I have decided to put forward my review in the form of a series. Here are the ten reasons why I enjoyed the show. 🙂
