Reinventing Sherlock Holmes : The Return of Innovative Wisdom
Amidst a deluge of crime TV series with bleeding-edge forensic techniques and contraptions returned a modern Sherlock. Freed from his deerstalker hat and pipe, the iconic ‘consulting’ detective now has the internet, GPS and a smartphone in his pocket. The contemporary reinvention, however, is also about things that remain ever more powerful in this digital age – Sherlock’s sharp observational skills, deductive reasoning and human relationships. The creative pair behind BBC’s mega-hit Sherlock, Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue, tell us about what makes their characters and stories stay relevant and intriguing, whatever age we live in.
