Unlocking Sherlock Reflection

The documentary I decided to watch was called Unlocking Sherlock. It was a documentary about one of my favorite TV shows BBC Sherlock. I actually really enjoyed the documentary.

Sherlock both the TV show and the stories/short stories have always been an obsession of mine. The documentary talked about the characters in the show. They had members of the cast and chew talking about the TV show.

One of the things that I think worked for the documentary is the fact that the cast and crew were talking in it. The audience could see how much everyone really cares for the show. The creators of the show, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, talked about how much they love the original stories.

Another thing that I think worked was the fact that they used different Sherlock Holmes stories from the past. It shows how the stories have stayed relevant over time and how they changed over time.

One thing I did not like is how much of the show they gave away during the documentary. For someone who has seen all the episodes I didn’t mind, but for someone who has never seen Sherlock they gave away one of the biggest cliff hangers during the documentary.

I think it would have been better if it was a bit longer and if they didn’t give away the cliffhanger.

The documentary revealed aspect of the show that the audience may not have known. Some ideas that the creators took from other Sherlock Holmes creations. They talked and revealed some about the main characters and two of the most popular villains.
