Created by Scotsman Steven Moffat and British actor Mark Gatiss, this contemporary re-working of Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective novels is cleverly-written, stylishly-made and exhilaratingly unpredictable. While British actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have electric chemistry as the aggressively-intelligent detective and his long-suffering friend.
