Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman
You’ve seen plenty of shows and movies about Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, but now it’s time to watch the best in Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective series Sherlock.
Cumberbatch plays Sherlock Holmes who uses his massive brain and observational powers to solve crimes in Modern Day London. He doesn’t solve them all by himself as his friend, roommate and partner Dr. John Watson (Freeman) is part of the process and the dialogue and chemistry between the two is remarkable.
It’s no wonder the duo and the series racked up so many accolades at the 66th Emmy Awards when both actors won in their respective categories and the miniseries won more than any other show that year.
The fourth season and final season of the series was added early in 2017. Fans would love to see more of the series, though.
