Just watching the new BBC drama Sherlock - based on Sherlock Holkmes of course, but modernised. It features Martin Freeman as John Watson and the excellent Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes - half an hour into it so far and I love it, smart, atmospheric and somewhat strange. Brilliant!

Update - finished watching it, now looking forward to episode two. Really great stuff, highly enjoyable from start to finish, intresting protagonist and integration of characters, some killer dialogue (my favourite was "Don't speak aloud, you're lowering the IQ of the whole street").

Even the title is a nice parody of the original "A Study in Pink" instead of "A Study in Scarlet".
