Storyline

In this modernized version of the Conan Doyle characters, using his detective plots, Sherlock Holmes lives in early 21st century London and acts more cocky towards Scotland Yard's detective inspector Lestrade because he's actually less confident. Doctor Watson is now a fairly young veteran of the Afghan war, less adoring and more active. Written by KGF Vissers

All good things are three
13 December 2018 | by alexglimbergwindhSee all my reviews

If you stop at third season and never start the next, if you can stop the urge to continue, you're going to love this show.

Me, personally can't accept what they did. It's like well made fan-fiction. Brilliant modern take with interesting characters and great performances all the way from season 1 - 3. The show ended at "his last vow"
