I adore everything about this series, from the writing to the acting to the brilliantly retro music. “The Blind Banker,” the second of three episodes, isn’t quite as strong as the other two but it is still highly enjoyable (and better than roughly 90% of all crime dramas on US television). Don’t miss Sherlock, this Sunday at 9 PM on Masterpiece Mystery!
Living with a genius isn’t easy — just ask Dr. John Watson (Martin Freeman, The Office UK). Watson is scrambling to do errands and find a job while Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch, The Last Enemy) awaits a challenge. When two men are found dead, Sherlock springs into action and takes Watson from the sidelines to the center of a dangerous new case. Sherlock is co-created by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat. (One episode; 90 minutes; TV-PG).
