Sherlock: Seasons 1 to 4 – A Review

Hello, my darling readers!
You know what they say: better late than never!
I finally binged all four Sherlock seasons, so I want to share a few quick thoughts I have about them.

The Plot:

You know the drill: Sherlock Holmes (a dash eccentric), Dr. Watson and a load of crimes to be solved!

The Rating:

However, I finally changed my mind – and I’m glad I did!

 

Thought #1 – The Books:
