    Looks like we might have to wait a bit for the next series of Sherlock:

    Much like watching 'Sheldon' on the comedy 'Big Bang Theory', this Sherlock is interesting -- the writers give him such an eclectic personality.

    Lucy Lui is a doll. She is Watson and that introduces what yanks seem to need, a love sub-plot. Oiy vey.

    I can imagine you UK'ers' shock over this crass revisioning of such a venerable classic... but, as Ian stated, it is imminently watchable...

    Did they ever explain how Lucy Liu's character's surname could be "Watson"? Or is it actually spelled "Huat-Sun"? Smiley

    Curses!  They are filming Sherlock down the road next week and I'm not going to be home.

    Still, great news that series 3 is underway!

    I am boycotting BBC productions due to 28Gate.

    Sherlock makes Elementary look rather... elementary.

    Lucky (and geeky) enough to have attended Stephen Moffat's talk this afternoon - he has confirmed that both characters will return for a fourth season - interestingly at their own request!(neither were superstars when they made the first series and they can pretty much do what they like nowadays I would guess),

    Great news!
