Benedict Cumberbatch & Jonny Lee Miller: Still OK, despite “cynical” feelings

In case you were under a rock, BBC televisions show, Sherlock, is one of the greatest things to exist in the last several years. The casting, the writing, the direction…everything comes together perfectly. And the the greatest coup of the show is the lead, played by the excellent Benedict Cumberbatch. CBS saw the show, and […]

Blightyvision: “Sherlock” Series 2

Created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss Written by Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss, and Steve Thompson Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, and Andrew Scott After the ending of the first series of Sherlock, a friend tweeted desperately to Steven Moffat that clearly he forgot to deliver the next episode to the BBC.  For more than […]

Created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss Based on the books by Arthur Conan Doyle Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman It’s all well and good for me to try and convince you that you should be excited about a second season of a show you may not have seen.  I covered “Luther” last week […]

The Wibbly-Wobbly Timey-Wimey Watchlist: Coming Back Next Season!

Rather than focusing this week on one upcoming project, I’m thinking it’s time for me to tackle this news of the announcements of two shows returning soon and put a few minds (much like mine) at ease.

The Wibbly-Wobbly Timey-Wimey Watchlist: “Sherlock”

No deerstalkers here, either, no sir. Steven Moffat’s been getting a lot of face-time — or perhaps that should be “name-time” — in my articles of late.  But you have to admit, he’s been a busy guy over the past few years.  Ruling Who-ville and continuing with other projects on the side does put him […]
