Sherlock(2010)- Plot

The Sherlock story is about modern age Sherlock Holmes. He is well known for his extraordinary logical reasoning, ability to take almost any form of physical evidence and master it, and use forensic science skills to solve difficult cases. John Watson is Holmes’ friend, roommate at 221B Baker Street, assistant, and biographer who narrates most of Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories.

The series mainly focuses on the bond between Dr. Watson and Sherlock. Both men play their roles perfectly as they solve many crimes throughout the show’s episodes. This show is based in modern times, unlike other cases where there are no televisions or technology to help solve their puzzles. Sherlock became an instant success due to many factors; the show’s production design, storyline, and villains were top-notch.

The character development of Sherlock and other characters such as Dr. Watson, Jim Moriarty, and others were wonderfully done.
