Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are back for another season of sleuthing and deduction. After being asked to help solve a royal scandal the pair head to Dartmoor in hopes of solving the mystery of a hound from hell. And finally, Sherlock once again engages with his greatest enemy, Moriarty.
Benedict Cumberbatch (Holmes), Martin Freeman (Watson), Una Stubbs (Mrs. Hudson), Rupert Graves (Lestrade), Loo Brealey (Molly), Andrew Scott (Moriarty), Mark Gatiss (Mycroft Holmes).
Season 2 , another 3 episodes, of Sherlock finds the sleuth and his partner engaged once again in some very interesting mysteries. From the Royal Palace to the boggy forest, Sherlock and Watson look for clues and use their keen powers of observation to solve the puzzles. The final episode with Moriarty was very good and, with something of a cliffhanger ending, leaves us wanting more from the series
Acting was once again fairly well done. The English can be a bit dry with their humor but this season feels a bit more relaxed and real. Cumberbatch and Freeman deliver as usual and continue with their interesting chemistry. Scott plays Moriarty perfectly once again, while Gatiss continues to be a painful antagonist.
Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were consistent with the series and fairly well done. Effects, physical and mild CGI were nicely done. Dialogue was good with Cumberbatch particularly skilled at fast delivery. Sound and soundtrack were solid as well.
Overall Sherlock – Season 2 continues the series, adding quality and generating further audience interest. Fans won’t want to miss this one, while those new to the series won’t be seriously lost.
With some mild violence this should be fine for teens and above.
Sherlock – Season 2 is no longer showing in any Littleton Colorado movie theatres.
Star rating: 4 out of 5
