Sherlock!

Post by caramarydaisy » Tue Aug 10, 2010 12:06

im a bit sad its over now. the first episode was some of the most brilliant tv ive seen in ages, me and humblebee were laughing our tummys off.

second ep didnt grab me as much but then the third was pretty good, what an ending!

they had steven moffatt and his producer lady wife on bbc breakfast this morning (as i think big nose pointed out on the tv thread) and they were saying there will definitely be more but not sure when. it was rad to hear what huge fans steven is of the books, and how they slipped in stuff that i think i completely missed.

now i want to go read lots of the books. my dad had them but i dont know if they are still kicking about at my mums..

It's a bit of a tease just doing three of them.

What else has lovely Benedict thingy been in, then?

Wasn't he Stephen Hawking in that programme about Stephen Hawking?

I thought it was ace. If they do anymore they should definitely keep it 90 minutes long.

also while i do think BC is great as sherlock.. hes a bit of a funny one to watch, i mean i think thats part of his appeal really, such a curiously played character. ooh i get all giddy thinking about him so he must be doing something right.

i have to say as well, i really quite liked martin freeman as watson too.

that 'to the ends of the earth' he was in was rather good, he was all at sea and it was very epic and tragic

he was also in nathan barley

his mum was the evil lady durwood in 'captain kronos - vampire hunter' and she was also colonel virginia lake in 'ufo'

Image

she's also appeared in three doctor who stories

she's appeared in most tv programmes, from danger man to the avengers to the fenn street gang to lewis and midsomer murders

I thought 'sherlock' was a triumph, more of that sort of thing, please. I think martin freeman was dead good in it too... and una stubbs

I liked that bit when sherlock said 'meretricious' and lestrade added 'and a happy new year'

The only thing that I didn't like was the idea that a character who is so scientifically literate wouldn't know that the earth went round the sun. Yes I can see that it's not directly relevant to his investigations but it's all to do with gravity and I'm sure he'd need to know about that to understand trajectories and such.

...oh and I couldn't for the life of me figure out why they seemed to be using a lensbaby for the establishing shots of London... </photo geek>

Other than that it was great fun and I very much hope they make more!

He was in an excellent play I saw at the National in London the other week called After The Dance. It was only half-way through episode 3 that it clicked where I'd seen him previously though.

He's also in the Radio 4 airline sitcom Cabin Pressure. I caught the start of it last night and they said he was on it which I'd not realised before. I couldn't tell which one he was and it's not very good anyway...

He was also in a fantastic programme on BBC called 'Hawking' a while back. He played (as you might have guessed) the robotic professor.

I think Sherlock played Stephen Hawking once.

I didn't think much of Moriaty. Something about the casting just seemed a little wrong.
I may be ugly and hate-filled but... wait, what was the third thing you said?

Pockets Filled With Matches are no more, but we still have copies of our e.p. 'If Time Heals You' for sale, if you'd like one
