Sherlock Holmes in A Study in Pink, Sunday October 24th on PBS Masterpiece Mystery!

Masterpiece Mystery! Sherlock

Tomorrow, Sunday October 24th, the first of three episodes of Series I of Sherlock airs on PBS Masterpiece Mystery! (check your local listings for air times).

Sherlock Holmes stalks again in a thrilling contemporary version of the Victorian-era whodunits based on characters created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Sherlock stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the go-to consulting detective in 21st-century London, with Martin Freeman as his loyal friend, Dr. John Watson, and Rupert Graves as the long-suffering Detective Inspector Lestrade.

In "A Study in Pink", Holmes and Watson meet. Watson is back in modern-day London after serving in the war in Afghanistan. His therapist, convinced that Watson is plagued by violent memories, urges him to express himself in a blog. But nothing much ever happens to Watson, and it's not that he's haunted by the war — he longs for it. Enter an eccentric roommate — one Sherlock Holmes. He plays the violin when he's thinking, sometimes doesn't talk for days, and has a dubious career as a self-described consulting detective. When what appear to be serial suicide cases surface in London, a desperate Detective Inspector Lestrade reluctantly consults the freakish Sherlock. To Sherlock, a crime spree is like Christmas — only made better by the possibility that these crimes may be the work of a devious serial killer. The game is on, and before it is over, Sherlock will put his life on the line — all to keep from being bored to death.

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. It will also be available to watch online from October 25th through December 7th, 2010.
