mymetalphantom: (H/W Victorian Hand Porn!)
A Study in Pink

This is the BBC, modern day adaptation of Sherlock Holmes, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Watson.

The plot sort of follows A Study in Scarlet but there are a lot of changes. A lot. So many changes that to say more would spoil it for those who haven’t seen it; but let me just say that if you were in STUD for the Mormon bashing, then you’re going to be very disappointed XD

So for this, I will just talk about the characters and themes and how well they have been adapted for a modern setting.

These are just some quick thoughts that I had jotted down then shaped into a vaguely coherent structure. There aren’t really any spoilers, especially if you're already familiar with the canon.

Apologies for babble.

It’s a three patch problem. )
