Royal Recognition

BBC One’s Sherlock, a clever, fast-paced TV updating of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s beloved Victorian detective saga, has won the 2010 Royal Television Society Programme Award for Best Drama Series. “This was one of the most original and entertaining new series for years,” the society declared in a canned statement.

Shown last summer in the UK, and this last fall in the States as part of PBS-TV’s Masterpiece Mystery! series, Sherlock (starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, and Rupert Graves) has already been renewed for a second season.

Also nominated in the Best Drama Series category were two excellent non-mystery shows, Downton Abbey and Misfits.

Sherlock Holmes is fashionable today. Cops and robbers when the kids play there in the name of Sherlock's. The story does not get tired. Peres in the film adaptations of course, represent nothing but the books are very good even today.
