Amazing, the lead actor is much more like The Doctor than the one we have now, cast him for 12 Mr Moffat.

My feelings exactly, except that it was Primeval's Professor Nick Cutter who seemed much more like the Doctor than David Tenant. Still, I'll be interested to see "Sherlock", (which apparently features "lethal killers" - much nastier than the non-lethal kind...)

"A thrilling, funny, fast-paced contemporary remake of the Arthur Conan Doyle classic."

Hmm.

I'm willing to give it a go, but I won't be too surprised if it turns out to be rubbish. But I'm always hoping to have my expectations exceeded...

For anyone who's seen Tim Firth's Cruise of The Gods, does this remind you of Sherlock Holmes in Miami?

It was Ok, good but not great, actually a bit too gimmicky for its own good, and it had an air of naffness about it, it will probably date badly.
On the plus side, WHY ISNT BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH THE DOCTOR?????

Brilliant show and don't be thinking Sherlock Holmes in modern times is a bit wierd,the majority of the Basil Rathbone films where set in modern times and every body thinks he was the greatest Holmes of all.....
Well not me I'd still vote Jeremy Brett no.1.....

Co wrote and produced with Mark Gatiss just like the break the Moff got with Hyde and look what happened with him..... :VoidStuff: :VoidStuff:

Jeremy Brett will always be the definitive screen Holmes to me, but having watched Sherlock expecting to be disappointed, I was actually pleasantly surprised. Bernadette Cumberlandsausage or however it's pronounced actually makes an excellent Holmes and the writing was top notch. Not entirely sure about Martin Freeman as Watson, but I suspect he'll grow on me. Another triumph from Moffat, I think!

Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce are my favourite Holmes and Watson.

I'm very surprised that no-one has claimed Tom Baker was their favourite Holmes.



.....


Actually, I've just remembered a bit more about that.
On second thoughts, I'm not that surprised... :|

I think Steven Moffat should concentrate on Doctor Who quite frankly.

Assuming that there is actually any sort of parallel here, that's a damn good argument for Moffat concentrating on Doctor Who.
