Critic Reviews for A Scandal in Belgravia

This was a lesson in how to adapt a Victorian writer with an understanding of what it is that makes their creation so compelling.

It's an excellent episode scuppered by some muddled sexual politics and a somewhat duff conclusion.

I'm sure there are dozens of references I missed, but that too doesn't matter. What does matter is that it fizzes down like a glass of New Year bubbly, full of wit and sparkle.

In essence, the show plays with itself for a couple minutes before it resumes the business of telling a story.
