Just Watched: Sherlock: A Scandal in Bohemia

Just saw the latest Sherlock: A Scandal in Bohemia.  I must admit I liked the spin they put on some of the Sherlock Holmes canon through little inserted vignettes, like the The Geek Interpreter instead of The Greek Interpreter.  Its funny, when the first series came out, I refused to watch it for over a year.  Being a diehard Sherlock Holmes nut, I thought the new interpretation would be a diabolical travesty.  How wrong I was!

Also nice to see the deer-stalker make a fleeting appearance.

Looking forward to Sherlock: The Hound of the Baskervilles.  And biding my time until the new Ritchie movie, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadowsis released on DVD as I missed it at the cinema.

    A great episode. As you say, lots of nice little tips to canon, including the case of the Speckled Blonde (originally The Speckled Band) and a little mention of “Vatican cameos”, which is a properly obscure reference!

    Of course, the episode title is actually ‘A Scandal in Belgravia’ – naturally this draws on the original ‘Bohemia’ extensively in its first third. I really liked the way Moffat spun this out into a bigger adventure, even if Sherlock’s rescue of Adler at the very end did jar a bit,

    My thoughts on an excellent season opener:
