The BBC’s modern Sherlock Holmes adaptation stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Andrew Scott, Mark Gatiss, Rupert Graves, Una Stubbs and Louise Brealey and has garnered a dedicated (rabid?) fanbase all over the world, for a reason: it’s excellent. Personally, it’s the best drama I’ve seen in a very, very long time (yes, including Game of Thrones) and I think it should basically be required viewing for everyone who claims to appreciate quality television.

Bonus, if you still have that one random holdout friend that you’ve been trying to convince to sample the brilliance that is Sherlock or possibly know some Elementary enthusiasts who should also be exposed the superior BBC interpretation of Holmes, well now’s your chance to get them onboard. Plus, watching the complete series to date will give us something to do (and tweet about) while we wait for Series 3 filming to get started early next year.
The Complete Sherlock will air in two episode blocks over three Saturdays – A Study in Pink and The Blind Banker on November 17, The Great Game and A Scandal in Belgravia on November 24 and The Hounds of Baskerville and The Reichenbach Fall on December 1.
