This Sherlock is literally taken out of his Victorian era and relocated into our days in London; a contemporary Sherlock, in full control over modern technology and gadgets, outsmarting the criminals of our times.
Benedict Cumberbatch plays the breakthrough role of his career in this TV show as Sherlock himself. He’s cranky, incredibly smart and sharp, as witty as ever and with an arrogant attitude that makes Inspector Lestrade and the entire police department blow a fuse. Add in his faithful doctor and friend John Watson, played by Martin Freeman (recently star of The Hobbit trilogy) and the duo will guarantee one of the most acclaimed TV series of the recent years.
Sherlock is above all a master-piece contemporary adaptation of the original story of the Victorian detective where all the previous characters and adventures are reshaped after the needs of our times.
