The BBC released their version of Sherlock in 2010. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Dr. John Watson. I have watched this series more times than I will ever admit because the number is embarrassing. My favorite character is Mycroft Holmes as played by Mark Gatiss. I couldn’t tell you why because, as we have discussed, I am not a good critic.
So if you haven’t seen this series, it is on Netflix and it is worth your time. If you aren’t sure it is for you, check out Common Sense Media’s review of Sherlock and that should help you decide. I don’t want you upsetting yourself, that is what watching the news is for.
If you have already seen Sherlock, join me in my rewatching of this endlessly entertaining adventure. Also, the actors who play Sherlock and Mycroft’s parents in the series are actually Benedict Cumberbatch’s real parents, so that’s fun.
