Something For The Weekend… Sherlock, Series 1 and 2


Whether or not you’ve seen it already a copy of Sherlock should be in your library. It’s a wonderfully written series updating the adventures of Sherlock Holmes to the modern day. There have been two series of three episodes each so far and since there’s a third in production slated to premiere in the new year now is the perfect time to catch up or rewatch.

Below you’ll find links to purchase Sherlock series one and two from iTunes and Amazon. You may need to turn off your ad block to see them as they are affiliate links, we get a tiny cut if you actually buy them. This helps us keep the lights on around here which is a good thing as we are afraid of the dark.

Thanks and enjoy your weekend!
