A Sherlock Holmes cartoon in present day could cause some dilemma as there are currently two series running using the iconic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle character. Which one to choose? Some are enamored with the BBC/PBS co produced “Sherlock” starring Benedict Cumberbatch in the role. Others will prefer the CBS version titled “Elementary” starring Jonny Lee Miller. I don’t have to make choices because I like them both but I would definitely give the edge to Elementary (mainly because they produce more than six hours a season).
But when you have two Sherlocks at once, won’t there be confusion when they both show up to 221B Baker Street (for the uninformed that is the address Sherlock Holmes lives in the books). Things are easy as the BBC/PBS version takes place in London while in the CBS version, Sherlock (while still maintaining the Baker street address) has moved to New York City.
And for those who like trivia, Jonny Lee Miller’s first wife was this famous actress (click the link to find out).
I know Christina Wald at PopSmoothie likes the BBC/PBS version as my inspiration to draw this was from her recent sketch of Cumberbatch. Any other fans of either series?
