Critic Reviews for Sherlock: Season 2

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (18)

The result was 90 minutes of television so richly enjoyable that I'm already beginning to wonder if we'll see anything better all year.

Moffat's greatest accomplishment may be all the things he didn't do. His Sherlock Holmes is the most relevant and compelling crime-solver on television -- and Moffat managed this by not changing very much at all.

Once again, Benedict Cumberbatch's modern-day Holmes and his intrepid sidekick Dr. John Watson (Martin Freeman) provide breathtaking non-stop exhilaration.
