It’s official: Right now, I am extraordinarily jealous of anyone who lives in the UK. Because you guys get to watch the second series of “Sherlock”, and over here in North America we have to wait six whole months.
I think it was here at After Hours, a year ago, that someone put me on to BBC’s contemporary remake of the classic Conan Doyle stories, and ever since then I have been devouring the measly 4h 30 minutes of Martin Freeman’s deadpan coolness and Benedict Cumberbatch’s brilliant Holmes. I’ve also been gnashing my teeth at the third episode’s cliffhanger ending.
But finally, the series has landed in the UK, which means it’s only a matter of time before it pops up on the other side of the pond. In the meantime, for all those who haven’t yet seen the trailers or the clips, here’s an excerpt I found on YouTube from the first instalment, “A Scandal in Belgravia”. Enjoy!
