‘Sherlock’ Ratings — BBC Series Draws 3.2 Million In Season 2 Premiere On PBS

Long time readers of this site know of my love for the BBC’s BAFTA-winning brilliant series Sherlock. Quite literally making the big screen, and quite well-done, version directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Robert Downey Jr. look like a student film, the series starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman and helmed by Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffatt has to easily be one of the best shows crafted on television…anywhere.

Even though it has had its run months ago on the BBC, it’s been playing this side of the pond on PBS for the last bit. It had its second series premiere just this last weekend to boffo numbers pulling in 3.2 million viewers.

This is great news for all as the accolades are definitely very much well-deserved.

It is not known when the next series of Sherlock will air as its star Cumberbatch is busy playing Khan in the next JJ Abrams Star Trek and Martin Freeman, who plays Dr. Watson, is off being the lead in little known film called The Hobbit.

What we do know is that it is happening, we will just have to patiently wait.
