After much haranguing from different directions, my daughter and I finally sat down to watch the first episode of Sherlock, "A Study in Pink". And then after that total gobsmack we watched the next two episodes as well. So that was roughly four-and-a-half hours of great TV. I'm thankful we only have to wait till next week to see what happens when Sherlock shoots the bomb.
…and on a tangental note: given how amazing these episodes were, I can't help but think that Doctor Who's storytelling suffered because Sherlock garnered all of Moffatt's and Gatiss' attention.
