Though I am quite the ‘Sherlock Holmes‘ fan, I am, alas, quite ignorant as to his creator (the GREAT) Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I did not, until today, even know he was a doctor. My loss.

Well, I happened to see this story (above) in the UK ‘Daily Mail’, which I read daily, & was both surprised & intrigued. I read most of it at once. I then, as is my wont, did some research. Wow. It is true. It is kosher & there is even a book & TV series available on ‘Amazon Prime Video‘. I sure plan to check the TV series out. It has to be good. I had to share this with you.

Quite the yarn. Very entertaining. Very clever. Lot of fun. You will LAUGH and you will come out refreshed.

Went to see it, on Easter, in Portsmouth (NH) at Cinemagic, after going to the ‘ocean’ and before going for dinner. Third movie we have seen this year, all at the Cinemagic, and there is an obvious theme in that the other two were: “Paddington 2” & “Peter Rabbit“. Yes, we like cartoons, featuring make-believe entities set in Britain. In a way there are similarities between all three of these movies, “Paddington” and it both set in London — but it is all good.

Definitely helps IF you know your Arthur Conan Doyle in that there are references to things such as the Arthur Conan Doyle.

Curious, THOUGHT-provoking portrayal of Sherlock — though we also get to meet his ex-finance. Curious that Elton John was the Producer! Was that a coincidence.

We liked it. It might NOT be everybody’s cup of British tea. Helps if you are an Anglophile or as in my case, out-and-out British to the core.
