Sherlock (No @#$%)


Steven Moffat, the current showrunner for the unbelievably good new season of Doctor Who and the creator of that awesome modern Jekyll miniseries, has decided to modernize Sherlock Holmes in a three-parter simply titled Sherlock. It’s basically just Holmes and Watson (played by Martin Freeman) in 2010, which means surprisingly little seems to have changed about the characters. As a lover of Sherlock Holmes, Moffat, and fine BBC miniseries, I cannot stress enough how much I’m going to watch the holy living fuck out of this thing. (Via LiveforFilms)
