Sherlock (season 1)

{5/5} “I know you’re an Army doctor, and you’ve been invalided home from Afghanistan. You’ve got a brother worried about you, but you won’t go to him for help, because you don’t approve of him, possibly because he’s an alcoholic, more likely because he recently walked out on his wife, and I know your therapist thinks your limp’s psychosomatic, quite correctly, I’m afraid. That’s enough to be going on with, don’t you think? The name is Sherlock Holmes, and the address is 221B Baker Street. Afternoon.”

Sherlock season 1, aired in 2010

Sherlock Holmes and John Watson investigate cases in modern day London. How can four suicides be linked — can someone really have said something to all of them that convinced them to kill themselves? Everything about this series is perfect — the stories, the cast, the look, and the music. It’s very clever and often funny. The season ends spectacularly on a cliffhanger. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman star.

Created by Mark Gatiss (writer on Doctor Who) and Steven Moffat (writer on The Adventures of Tintin).

I’d seen this season once before.
