SHERLOCK MARATHON
December 23, 2019  | By David Bianculli

BBC America, 6:00 a.m. ET

 
Well, when a TV show’s season is only three episodes long, a “marathon” showing of an entire season is less a marathon than a sprint. But BBC America is showing more than one season of Sherlock, the brilliant modern reinterpretation by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman star as Holmes and Watson, and the marathon begins with “A Study in Pink,” which reintroduced the Baker Street sleuth in his newest, and best, TV incarnation. Watch, in particular, for the Season 2 opener “A Scandal in Belgravia,” which first presented Lara Pulver as Irene Adler – and did so without breaking the budget on wardrobe. It's repeated at noon ET.
