No shit, Sherlock

Just watched an excellent BBC production, SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE CASE OF THE SILK STOCKING. It featured a great original script by Allan Cubitt (who adapted HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES a year or so ago, where the great Ian "cornered the market in John Lennon biographies" Hart first appeared as John Watson). It fused modern, post Thomas Harris, crime fiction psychology with old fashioned Conan Doyle style plot twists. But mainly I was impressed by Rupert Everett's Holmes. He's just gone into my top ten screen Holmeses with a bullet.
