My final paper is over BBCs show Sherlock. In it I go over the mazing cinematography, production value, story narrative, and accuracy in the adaptation of the first episode A Study in Pink and he first book A Study in Scarlet. Here is just the introduction to my paper.
Sherlock Holmes is a house hold name and has been for over the past few decades. The fictional detective with his sidekick Dr. John Watson go about Europe catching bad guys, using logic of deduction, and getting in the oddest situations. The first story came out in 1891 and ever since the readers have been in love with the franchise. The directive has spawned different interpretations and mediums of telling his stories. There have been books, comics, plays, movies, music videos, video games, and of course T.V. shows. One of which is BBC’s Sherlock. First airing in the United Kingdom on BBC the show came about in 2010 and is still ongoing with a total of 13 episodes spanning currently 4 seasons. The programs stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Dr. John Watson, Martin also played Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit trilogy and Benedict in the movies played Smug the dragon. The show has been an international hit! The new adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle fictional detective with modern visual design, production value and worldwide distribution, and the reimagined story telling of the adventures of Holmes and Watson the BBC has a hit show with a diverse growing fan base and may make the character more popular than ever before.
