This looks like a refreshing change from Cumberbatch's flash, young, contemporary Holmes and RDJr.'s steampunk/Snatch Holmes. (Both of which I like, there's room for more than one take on the classic.)
Over 70 actors have previously played Sherlock Holmes. Now he's 93 years old and it's my turn. #MrHolmes pic.twitter.com/B9HkUgfkCvAny chance his mate Sir Patrick might want to take a crack at Moriarty?
