Elementary, my dear . . . who are you again?

I’ve never read any Holmes literature outside of Doyle’s original stories and, in fact, never read the final book or the much later collections in the series (no one really denies that the first two volumes and The Hound of the Baskervilles represents the pinnacle of the sleuth’s career anyway, so I haven’t missed the most important elements) ; but I have been rather fond of the character for quite some time and I find myself somewhat pleased to see this film in development. Cullin’s novel is foreign to me, but the whole concept seems to be an interesting one; and though the thought of a mentally-impaired Holmes is almost painful, I would love to watch the master in his golden years, even if they’re not so golden.

  1. Hey Eric. I’m looking forward to this film as well. I would recommend you check out the BBC series “Sherlock” with Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Watson. It’s extremely well done and and the stories are updated to fit in a modern setting (but true to the original Doyle canon). There are two series of three 90 minute episodes out right now with a third on the way for 2013 in Britain/2014 for America. The first two series are available in Netflix, if you have access to it as well as DVD.
