    Sherlock Holmes


    3 Not allowed!
    Used to really enjoy this a few years ago as a bit of light - yet intelligently written and well cast / acted - entertainment with some novel graphics / special effects.

    But I really struggle with it now. It tries to be way too clever, the acting is verging on farce and so far as bit of 'feet-up Sunday night telly' it is WAY off the mark. I'm sure it will scoop up loads of awards etc, but I am severely losing my patience with it.

      Stephen Moffat has over complicated it, which is exactly what he has done with Dr Who.

      I like his writing in a way, but the problem is it needs concentration on every single line of the dialogue.

      Agree with that (although I don't watch Dr Who).

      Sunday night in January, I'm just kicking back - watching a bit of TV ,chucking the occasional log on the fire and perusing NSC. Sherlock was just too demanding of my attention for 90 minutes. Very clever, I'm sure - but I don't have and hour and half to devote purely to keeping up with all the plot twists and flashbacks and stuff. Tedious.

      Just finished watching tonight's episode and said to my wife that if that was the first time you had seen it you would say it's a load of rubbish. Far too involved this time around.

      "Did you get all that?"

      "No, I gave up. But what was that TV presenter all about?"

      "He wasn't a TV presenter, he was a millionaire murderer."

      "Oh."
      Please buy from Amazon via this link. Thanks.

      Thought it was brilliant tonight, but I might need to watch it a few more times...
      Was that the intro? I should have been in!

      Totally agree. Great twist at the end
