New Sherlock Holmes TV Series

As I fan of the Sherlock Holmes stories, I’m always on the look out for revamps and reworkings of the classic Arthur Conan Doyle stories whatever the medium, from detective games, movies and TV shows. And so I was eager to watch the latest modernized 3-part TV series from the BBC called Sherlock:

Not only is this series set in modern day, but it has Sherlock using modern technology with the Internet and smart phones adding to his sleuthing tools! Though just like in the originals his lack of general knowledge is perhaps surprising, his use of the latest tools to test his theories and crack the cases before the police is second to none. This series is an enjoyable and excellent update and well worth a watch if you get a chance to see it.

The DS game does evoke the same spooky and suspenseful atmosphere of the PC game, though the graphics are not great and are much better in the computer game version.
