The Red Queen recently asked if I would rent some Sherlock Holmes mysteries on my Netflix account. While I’ve read Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories many times through the years, I wasn’t too interested in seeing a BBC dramatization of them but agreed. It pays to keep the Red Queen occupied you see.
Well, four were delivered last week and I watched them with her, trying with all my power to dislike them. I was thoroughly unsuccessful. After we had watched those four, four more arrived and I am watching them in succession right now.
If you ever have the opportunity to catch this fabulous series featuring Jeremy Brett, as Sherlock Holmes, and Edward Hardwicke, as Dr. Watson, please do so. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.
UPDATE: Make that “remarkably” surprised… Better Nala?
