  • A little long-winded in some stretches, not detailed enough in others but Holmes fans -- and fans of cop procedurals -- should like this.

  • The program overstates its case, suggesting that modern-day forensics wouldn't exist without Holmes. That's like saying there would have been no lunar landing without Jules Verne or no organ transplants without Mary Shelley.

  • How Sherlock Changed the World is one of those promising ideas that, alas, looks better from afar.

  • Lots of fun, really interesting, if a tad repetitious.

  • This two-part, two-hour series is incredibly annoying, to the point of being infuriating. Largely this is because of potentially great subject matter, horribly mishandled.
