“Supplementary, my Dear Watson...”

Sherlock Holmes for the 21st Century
Fans of the recent BBC series: Sherlock may want to check-out series 1 on DVD.

Tucked away on disc 2, is the series pilot, that was never shown on TV. Entitled, A Study in Pink, it shares the same title as the episode that was broadcast, but  only runs for an hour (instead of the 90 minutes for the series-proper).

Having watched both, it was interesting to see the differences – large and small – and how it impacted on the story-telling. For me, both stories worked in their own right and showed-off the skills of all those involved in working with the different time constraints.

Great stuff for all Sherlock ‘Fan-Boys’!
