[368] Sherlock Interviews: Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman

So the three-episode run of Sherlock is now finished. Did you like it? I thought it was so-so. No reason why it shouldn't improve with time, though. Anyway, it's a good opportunity to go back and look at the interviews from the set visit a couple of months ago, don't you think? Did it pan out the way they spun it? Here's the roundtable interview with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.

We're one day closer to the first episode of Sherlock (Sunday at 9pm on BBC One, if you're lagging behind!), so we're treating you to more material gathered from our set visit back in March.

Today, we have a group interview with the series' stars, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman (Holmes and Watson, respectively). The chaps gave us a sizeable chunk of their time between takes on the A Study In Pink shoot, and kindly chatted about their approach to the characters, their appreciation of the Conan Doyle stories, and how Sherlock fits in with a more modern style of policing.

Yeah, I agree with that assessment. I enjoyed it just fine, but I can't understand why everyone is going batshit about it. I think Moffatt and Gatiss together probably hits something of a geek sweet spot, but really we shouldn't be in the position of accepting as brilliant that's actually just moderately entertaining.

Oh dear, my post verification word is "choad"!
