Holmes (Jeremy Brett)

The Game is Afoot!

The new Sherlock miniseries is coming out next week, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what they did with it. The trailer looks interesting, but I'm trying to reserve judgment or get my hopes up too much. It could be an awesome updating of the classic, or end up like a bad modern-day AU fanfic. I'm hoping for the former, but we'll see. Either way, I'm still looking forward to seeing it.

Although, I do have to admit that I'm very put out that Watson's mustache seems to have gone missing. I know it's a minor detail, but Watson without his mustache is like Holmes without his pipe or his violin. It just feels wrong somehow. Maybe that should be their first case... "The Case of the Missing Mustache." Forget "A Study in Scarlet" (or 'Pink' according to the episode list) and find the damn facial hair! ;P
