Episodes Announced for Sherlock Season 2
May 17, 2011

The BBC Sherlock series, a modern reimagining of the consulting detective starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, was one of my happiest discoveries last year. It’s a wonderful show, and much too short at only three episodes. (Although each is 90 minutes long, making them more like little movies.)

Per a BBC blog, the next season, due fall of this year, will similarly be three episodes, as follows:

  • “A Scandal In Belgravia” by show creator (and Doctor Who producer) Steven Moffat.
  • “The Hounds of Baskerville” by Mark Gatiss.
  • “The Reichenbach Fall” by Stephen Thompson.

Those are some classic stories, and I’m eagerly anticipating seeing how they’re re-envisioned. Filming began this week.

Update: Best guess at this point is that we’ll see the Season 2 episodes in the U.S. on PBS in May 2012.

I enjoyed the initial Study in Scarlet episode a lot, but was extremely disappointed in the second. I don’t have a good memory of the third, but the feeling of the second probably bled into my perception of that one. Despite my mixed reaction to the first season, the reimagined Holmes and Watson showed such promise that I am looking forward to the second season.

I’ve heard a lot of good things about this show. I’m definitely picking it up, and the wife and I are huge Sherlock fans.

Ralf, the second episode, “The Blind Banker”, was written by Steve Thompson, who seems to be beloved of British TV creators but I also find disappointing. He also wrote the recent pirate episode of Doctor Who from a couple of weeks ago.

I’m not sure. Hopefully, it will air in the US about the same time it does in the UK.
