Sherlock (TV series) Sherlock is a British television crime drama that presents a contemporary adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes detective stories. Created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, it stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Doctor John Watson. Nine episodes have been produced, the first three of which aired in 2010. Series two aired in 2012, and a third series aired in 2014. The third series has become the UK's most watched drama series since 2001.[1] Sherlock has been sold to over 200 territories.[2] The writers said that Freeman's casting developed the way in which Cumberbatch played Holmes.[11] The theme of "friendship" appealed to both Gatiss and Moffat.[24] Gatiss asserted the importance of achieving the correct tone for the character.

Fanvids I absolutely agree in every way.And also I get upset because it’s not as if male friendships don’t get any representation. It’s not like, “OH GOD, I can’t even turn on my television without two men ending up in a romantic/sexual relationship just because they had a deep friendship. Why can’t I just enjoy the friendship without it being sexualized??” But no, you ask for anything queer, anything queer at all, and people act as though you’ve asked for the entirety of the television and film industries to ban platonic m/m relationships and hetero romantic relationships forever.And honestly, on a related note, I’m actually beginning to get pretty sick of, “I just don’t see it.” And I’m not saying that because I have a problem with other people getting a different read on the same material, because I absolutely don’t.

Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights: do we need new film versions? Christine Langan, who runs BBC Films, recently felt obliged to defend the latest cinematic adaptations of novels by Charlotte and Emily Brontë – Cary Fukunaga's Jane Eyre, which opens early next month, and Andrea Arnold's Wuthering Heights, due for release in November – against accusations of deja vu. "People," Langan sighed, "will be saying, 'Why the hell are they doing all that over again?'" They are doing it, I'd suggest, because it needs to be done. TV review: Sherlock 'Ask me what that is," I say to my girlfriend, nodding at my new purchase, a small tree in a pot on the patio. I've been hoping she'd ask me of her own accord, but it's been a few days and she hasn't, almost certainly on purpose – to hurt my feelings. "Go on then, what is it?" she sighs.

A Mycroftian Manifesto How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Mycroft As a writer and general all-purpose fangirl, I often find myself falling in love with characters while the source material looks on disapprovingly. Criminals and cads, serial killers and sociopaths---they’re hardly the kind of men I can see bringing home to my mother. When I’m not romancing complete scoundrels, I have a terrible weakness for minor characters.

Martin Freeman Early life Martin Freeman was born in Aldershot, Hampshire, the youngest of five children. His parents, Philomena (née Norris) and Geoffrey Freeman, a naval officer, separated when Freeman was a child, and when Freeman was ten, Geoffrey died of a heart attack.[4][5] Freeman attended the Salesian School, Chertsey before attending Brooklands College for media studies.[6] His elder brother Tim became a musician with the group Frazier Chorus.
