Sherlock - almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea
if I had to explain, you wouldn't understand
BBC's new Sherlock: Double thumbs-up.

echoes of Who, The Princess Bride and various other beats. Benedict Cumberbatch was wonderful as The Doctor Sherlock, Martin Freeman was jolly splendid as Watson and Phil Davis was, well, Phil Davis.

Which is no bad thing.

one question though. Why is it not repeated? Who is repeated eleventy billion times a week on BBC3, but Sherlock manages a repeat tomorrow on the BBC HD channel.

Yes, there's iPlayer, and I watched the last half hour on that, but I missed bits of the start due to various things then got booted off the big telly as K wanted to watch something else.

elaby (and caitirin, along with any of my non-UK f'list) - if you can find a way of watching it online, I'd highly recommend it.

Wrong Phil. Both in Quadrophenia, but that was Phil Davis. One's a lovable Londoner, the other's a scary Essex man. This is scary man.

It's alright, everyone does it. It's just I'm a fan of Davis, the creepy git, whereas Daniels gets on my wick.

We really enjoyed it, only three episodes I believe, which won't be enough.

For the moment I'm waiting to see if it comes to BBC America, which I get on cable.

Season Finale for Who was on last night, but I've not had time to watch it yet.

season finale for Who was epic.

I believe Sherlock will be on BBC America later in the year. Definitely worth catching it if you can.

Glad I'm not the only one to have caught echoes of The Princess Bride...

Definitely a double thumbs up... Moffat, it seems, has the Midas Touch right now...
