The idea behind this work is excellent: To create a Sherlock Holmes film that occurs in the modern era. Its computer-generated imagery is simply magnificent. Sadly, all of this is tied down by a very poor derivation. This Sherlock Holmes is self-contradictory; he is a genius, and at the same time, an idiot. He makes inferences and then correct inferences from said inferences, but fails to understand the consequences of his own actions. Quite frankly, it takes a genius to create a film about a genius. Failing that, the film relies on the stale tactic of introducing a recurring villain to compel the viewer to watch the series. Failing that too, nudity and sex appeal comes into play.

The Blind Banker - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Sherlock is backstage at the circus and finds the yellow spray paint, he draws a line on the mirror. In the next shot, the line he drew is completely different (and in fact is more of a squiggle). (01:07:40)

Sherlock Holmes: Punch me in the face.
John Watson: Punch you?
Sherlock Holmes: Yes, punch me in the face. Didn't you hear me?
John Watson: I always hear "punch me in the face" when you're speaking, but it's usually subtext.
