Tonight Episode 2 of Season 4 of Sherlock airs, on PBS this side of the pond. The episode is entitled "The Lying Detective," which is a clever little twist on Doyle's story "The Dying Detective." As we are too cheap to get cable, and the local PBS affiliate refuses to come in on our digital TV, I will be watching it tomorrow, and then reviewing it here on Baker Street Babble. Stay tuned for my next review!
Having been a fan of the BBC's Sherlock since it first appeared, I'm always interested to see what they do next. Since the longer trailer for the new season has arrived, we can get a tiny glimpse of what is coming up. So why am I not impressed yet? The trailer seems to emphasize action, edge-of-your-seat thrills...things that don't seem to fit into the Sherlockian universe. I'm beginning to hope they wrap it all up this season. And I hope they wrap it up well...keeping my fingers crossed, until the game is afoot once again.
(I've posted below the longer trailer from October, and the somewhat shorter and more action-oriented teaser trailer from July.)
In the 1950's Sir John Gielgud and Sir Ralph Richardson portrayed Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson on a series of adaptations on BBC Radio. You can listen to a selection of the radio adaptations on Spotify here.
Times Past Old Time Radio also has quite a few links to the Gielgud/Richardson radio dramas, as well as several other radio versions of Holmes (including Rathbone and Bruce).
