It’s Sherlock vs. Dementia! Watch Ian McKellen as 93 Year-Old Mr. Holmes



Forget Moriarty…Holmes probably already has, because in this telling, the master-sleuth finds himself vulnerable to the inevitable memory loss that strikes all people of a certain age.

I’m going to take a wild guess that this Sherlock Holmes dies at the end…though maybe he shouldn’t, as “Retirement Holmes” could be a whole new way to pitch franchises at audiences that don’t normally find themselves a target demographic.

As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.) Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A.
