Sherlock Holmes in The Blind Banker, Sunday October 31st on PBS Masterpiece Mystery!

Masterpiece Mystery! Sherlock

Tomorrow, Sunday October 31st, the second of three episodes of Series I of Sherlock airs on PBS (check your local listings for air times).

We watched last week's episode ("A Study in Pink") and were enthralled, from the spot-on character depictions to the well-plotted storyline to the introduction of modern twists on classic lines from the canon. ("It's quite a three patch problem, Watson.")

In the second episode, "The Blind Banker," John Watson (Martin Freeman) is scrambling to do the errands and find a job while Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) sits around, apparently in deep contemplation. Sherlock seems oblivious, and in no hurry to take a case. When there's been a break-in at a bank, Sherlock inexplicably springs into action. Nothing has been stolen, only indecipherable graffiti painted on a wall. A bank employee is soon found dead in his apartment, the windows and doors locked from the inside, and Sherlock is at full, frenetic attention. An exhausted and hungry Watson (Sherlock doesn't eat while on a case — it just slows him down) watches from the sidelines of a case of which he'll soon inexplicably find himself at the center.

This first series of Sherlock will be released on DVD and Blu-ray disc on November 9th, 2010, and is available to pre-order from Telemystery: Sherlock. If you missed last week's episode, you can watch it online through December 7th, 2010, on the PBS: Sherlock website.
