Sherlock BBC! The Hound of the Baskervilles

Watson (Martin Freeman), Sherlock (Benedict Cumberpatch)
Sherlock's best known case--"The Hound of the Baskervilles"--and there are questions if he truly solved it. Maybe with this new take, the analysis will be solid. I will not spoil it for you, but this new Sherlock is actually making more sense to me. It could be the advances in forensic science finally match his assumptions.



If you want to read more on the genesis of this Sherlock series, here's a link:

Woof indeed
1939
So many other interpretations of this story, but I'm thinking this may be the best. Maybe because the new team has had 110 years of others working on it for them.

One of the major themes Sir Arthur Conan Doyle   was addressing was superstition and its role in problem solving. But the constant theme of friendship is actually my favorite. Such diverse gentlemen to be friends. 

What with Netflix and the Internet, you can compare and contrast the various productions yourself. You might wish to start with Basil's.


 Here's a cool preview. Hope there are no spoilers.
