SHER­LOCK starts with Dr John H Wat­son (Martin Free­man) meet­ing Sher­lock Holmes (Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch) for the first time in the episode A Study In Pink.

The two are in­tro­duced, and Holmes – a showoff – rat­tles off per­sonal de­tails about Wat­son (not all of them ac­cu­rate, as it turns out). Al­though caught off guard that a stranger seems to know all these things about him, Wat­son is cu­ri­ous enough to check out the flat at 221B Baker Street. Just min­utes af­ter sit­ting down, Holmes brings him to a crime scene. And just like that, 20 min­utes into the first episode, both Wat­son and the au­di­ence are hooked.

As long as Holmes doesn’t put your life un­der the mi­cro­scope, what is there not to like about the world’s only con­sult­ing de­tec­tive who is a high-func­tion­ing so­ciopath (and not a psy­chopath, thank you very much)?

The sec­ond sea­son kicks off with A Scan­dal In Bel­gravia, which shows the ex­tent of their

Wel­come to 221b, baker Street.
