The question on everyone's lips is finally answered as the hugely popular Sherlock returns in three brand new action-packed adventures. With the demise of Moriarty, Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch, Star Trek Into Darkness) finds himself locked in another mind battle with the powerful Charles Augustus Magnussen, who is holding the secrets of the world at his fingertips. Once again, the game is on for Sherlock and John (Martin Freeman, The Hobbit) in The Empty Hearse, The Sign of Three, and finally, His Last Vow.

I found this out after Season 1, when I bought the DVD's (NOTE: you can get the DVDs earlier from amazon.uk, though you'll need an all-region DVD player to watch them). I realized I was seeing entire scenes that PBS didn't broadcast. A crucial scene in "A Study in Pink", where the murderer reveals his motivation, was cut short on PBS. So you never know until you watch the DVD why he did the murders.
Really unconscionable of PBS to manhandle such a great series.
I have loved Sherlock from season 1 but you really see the human side of Sherlock start to show itself in this season.
His character really grows into someone who has feelings and even at times affection for his friends. He will do anything to keep them safe and in episode three you will see just how far he will go.
This season is filled with tears, laughter, and riveting suspense. I find myself re-watching them over and over again. I haven't got tired of them yet.
I cannot wait for season 4!
Martin Freeman's Watson, however, is far and away the best Watson I have ever seen, better that I could have imagined after at least a dozen bumbling, moronic Watsons we seem to have been gifted with over the years. Freeman's Watson is courageous,, intelligent, but injured by the horrors of war, and with the need for action that life with Holmes offers. Absolutely the best, a match for Sherlock in every way except Watson has a moral compass that Sherlock seems to lack.
To say Cumberbatch's Sherlock was not my favorite Holmes is not to say that I didn't thoroughly enjoy every minute of every episode in three seasons of the show, I was completely involved, entangled, addicted to the show. And while I was watching, I thought Cumberbatch had the character down pat, but in retrospect I can't say he was "better", just new and different, and unfortunately, like a child who doesn't mind getting muddy as he splashes through the puddles after a rain.
So... An excellent re-interpretation of the iconic detective Sherlock Holmes, excellent in all aspects save one, and Benedict Cumberbbatch is an excellent, award worthy actor who's immersion in the character of Sherlock the hyper-intelligent man, stuck developmentally at twelve years old, who's exuberant pursuit of accurate explanations of reality lead to wonderful stories for us to watch unfold. I will watch them again, and possibly again, and enjoy every minute. You should too.
I love mysteries and Sherlock Holmes, who doesn't!! THIS IS BY FAR the best interpretation of a modern Sherlock and Watson, love Mary Watson too.
