This is Indy. Greetings from Canada! I hope this finds you and yours well.
Let's face it, folks. Sherlock only let Irene THINK she beat him. I think he'd refuse to let a mere woman get the upper hand. He's Sherlock Holmes, after all.
Anyway, this piece is going in my faves gallery. This is excellent work. As for Benedict looking like Tennant, I don't think so. Tennant doesn't have the cheekbones!!! The expressions, even though I can't really read Sherlock's, are just great. Irene reminds me of a cat playing with a mouse she just cornered just before she kills it. Why did Sherlock have to be her mouse?
Great characturization of these two!!! Keep up the good work, kiddo!!!
No matter of what no matter of all the Sherlock/John mad stuff surrounding me on tumblr or deviantart, I had always thought of Holmes as asexual. But that was before that episode. My God, more chemistry than in almost every movie or show I've ever seen, just ever!
Love that scene - the play between the two of them was so charged and brilliantly thought out. Love Sherlocks desperate expression here - you really caught the awkward back and forth relationship they have. Her triumphant face is great too
Hmmm... I grew up reading these stories, I've avoided the movies as from the previews and casting it seems to be blithely irreverent and overly sexed - I guess the movie makers found the original stories too dry or eloquent for a "modern" audience. *shrug* I dunno.
How is this show? Is it hunky Holmes solves cases while being involved in smallville'esque drama? Do be honest...
They're simply wonderful! I've recently read the books after watching this series and I must say there did a fantastic job of converting it into the modern world. Benedict and Martin make a fantastic Holmes and Watson, both look and play the parts to perfection. The story lines are complex yet well thought out and easy to follow. Go and watch it straight away!
It's good. I'm surprised, pleasantly so. It, however, does not surprise me that it would take the British to do justice to my beloved Holmes (goodness knows the U.S. botched their chance). I'm pleased, and tentatively anticipating more. Thanks so much for alerting me to this! I've needed a good bout of rampant fandom. ;D
