In "Study in Pink," four people commit suicide by poison. When Holmes sets out to establish a link, he falls right into the culprit's clutches. Other cases concern a smuggling operation ("The Blind Banker") and a mad bomber ("The Great Game"). Though he doesn't make a formal entrance until episode three, an infamous figure from Sherlock's future has a hand in each mystery, while the detective's brother, Mycroft (co-creator Mark Gatiss), first appears when he tries to hire Watson for a case of his own, an offer that gives the good doctor pause. Through his job at a medical office, Watson also meets Sarah (Zoe Telford), who becomes his girlfriend.
Part of the fun of Jeremy Brett's Holmes (and Agatha Christie's Poirot) came from the period details, so this update takes a little getting used to--as does the occasional mumbled line--but Cumberbatch and Freeman share an enjoyable Odd Couple rapport, marked by flashes of deadpan wit, which compensates for the absence of deerstalker caps (Holmes favors scarves) and journals (Watson maintains a website). Extras include commentary on the finale, the original pilot, and a featurette, in which cocreator Steven Moffat (Doctor Who) notes that Cumberbatch was his only choice for the title role. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Whole family love it!
For understanding the whole story, age over 12 is needed. Very good for logical thinking training, and brain training.
This show is excellent. I enjoy the Elementary series and bought this. It is different, but also very good.Published 4 days ago by Rare Reviewer

I have preordered a ton of things on Amazon using prime and they *always* arrive the day of release. I have never had a problem. The company is literally 25 for 25.

|Does this DVD set have three or four episodes?||
The 2-DVD set contains the 3 episodes that were shown on TV, an audio commentary for "A Study in Pink", a "making-of" featurette, and the un-aired pilot episode (shorter version of "A Study in Pink").
