Season 2 of the BBC-produced Sherlock opens Sunday night on PBS here in the States, and the only thing I’m not looking forward to is the fact that there are only three new episodes. (The too-short-season was also true the first time around.) Benedict Cumberbatch is outstanding as the title character, a modern version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. As Dr. Watson, Martin Freeman is the perfect sidekick.
I can’t give Sherlock a higher recommendation. Beth and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment in the first season, and ever since it ended we’ve been looking forward to season 2.
More about the series, including a terrific batch of video previews (two of which are embedded below), is available on the PBS Sherlock webpage.
