Frankly, not that impressive. The stories are mediocre at best, and a few of the clues and deductions are much too close to ones in Doyle's original stories.

audiobook note: Yes, Cumberbatch offers strong and expressive readings, but the producers have relied too much on the good will with which his ardent fans will color their critiques. Since Holmes stories are always presented from the POV of Watson, it would have made more sense to cast Martin Freeman as the narrator, and I found myself bothered by the disconnect.
