OK ... so I'm way behind (as usual) but the Cucumber Patch/ Hobbit Sherlock Holmes is as good as my sources have told me.

I've just watched the Study in Pink on iPlayer which I'm assuming is the first. Plenty of arch dialogue & Boy's Own chipper stiff upper lip understatement. Perhaps a little too much reliance on mobile telephony (but, hey, the BBC is hip to the word on the street & the new police beat) & the gay subtext is a bit tiresome.

However, it's a Baker's Dozen streets ahead of the Dr Who episode I switched off some months ago. & in any case, Dr Who always was a pretty transparent steal from Sherlock Holmes. Elementary particles my dear Watson.

Episode two tomorrow night, methinks.
