As soon as I watched the first minute of A Study In Pink, I fell in love with the characters being portrayed in the show. Season upon season, it keeps getting better. Character Development in Sherlock is done well and the overall plot is amazing. Every person I have befriended has become obsessed or at least enjoys the show. I would watch this a million times and I would never get bored of it.

Everything you can possibly want - from humour to drama, thrills, suspense, tragedy, heartbreak and absolute fun - is found in this tv series that is the best adaptation of Sherlock Holmes ever. It's witty and breathtaking, and is a timeless masterpiece. Other renditions can only attempt to be half as good because Sherlock is untouchable and unbeatable. This is what dazzling and addictive entertainment looks like.

Brilliant. By far the best adaptation of Holmes' classic character currently available. Witty and clever in the right moments, but dark and serious in others. Fantastic performances by Cumberbatch and Freeman really bring the world of this "high-functioning sociopath" to life. Couldn't recommend more.
