Sherlock - BBC ONE & HD - Sunday 25th

The time is almost upon us, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss's 3 part Sherlock Holmes modernisation will be airing from Sunday 25th at 9pm.

The world's favourite detective has emerged from the fog. With sparkling scripts and unforgettable performances from the two leads, Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Martin Freeman (John Watson), this is Sherlock for a new generation.
Sherlock Holmes was always a modern man. It's the world that got old. Now he's back as he should be: edgy, contemporary, difficult – and dangerous – in three new dramas on BBC One.

I'm curious about this, mainly because Sherlock Holmes is a great character so I'm always interested in new interpretations. But somehow, my expectations are low. I'll probably tune in for the first part at least though.

Did you see Jekyll a few years back? That'd give you a taste of what Steven Moffat can do with a modernisation.

I think I saw at least one episode of it. What I saw was quite good. I'm terrible at consistently following a show though, so I don't think I saw the whole story, so I can't judge it fairly. Still, if this is by the same fellow, my expectations are a bit higher than they were before I knew that!

Yep same fellow, along with one of the League of Gentlemen, Mark Gatiss, who also wrote Crooked House as well as some of ITV's Agatha Christie's Poirot and the upcoming The First Men in the Moon remake.

With Doctor Who on break we need something to pass the time.

I'm looking forward to this. While I still crave for a new cinematic faithful take on Holmes a la Jeremy Brett version, with someone like Alan Rickman in the lead, this interests me more than the Robert Downey Jr version.

Any idea when and where this will air in the states? Also, where one in the US may view that trailer, I get a "not available in your area" message when I try and watch it.

^I believe PBS have a co-production deal on it, so it will be part of the Masterpiece strand on PBS.

Bit of a crap version but

^ It's not the first time Holmes has been modernised. But, as mentioned before, Jekyll showed how well Steven Moffat can modernise a classic.

Yeah, that's my reaction as well. There are certain things that should stay the way they are. I mean, you change the timeline of Sherlock Holmes, and you make it just an ordinary detective show, since a big part of who Holmes is, is the time period.
