I think Sir Ian McKellen is a good fit for Holme's character. It might be a great movie - certainly closer to the original character than Robert Downie Junior's movies (which, although unique, were still enjoyable).

I like the twist of an aging Holmes - sounds interesting for sure. Hopefully it doesn't get too much of the "hollywood" treatment being shot in the UK. Anything's likely to be better than that downey jr shite IMO (Elementary doesn't even bear mention IMO.) Evil or Very Mad

So will there be a Mrs. Holmes, as in the Laurie R. King "Beekeepers Apprentice" series? Just to give this post a healthy sidewise shove...who would you cast as the far younger Mrs. H to the septegenarin Holmes.

This does sound good......ever since Jeremy Brett, no one seems to come close for me.......but this sounds like a good "take"; an aging Holmes and new possibilities........I wonder if he'll say "Wish they hadn't discontinued the 'original shag' I smoked when I was younger!

just can't imagine Holmes as married--what woman would put up with him?

I vote for Meryl Streep. I think she could play and excellent Mrs. Holmes.

I read the book. Very depressing.

So, first this guy prefers cigars to a pipe. Second he wants to correct Watson's embellishments.

I'm not hopeful.

Not yet. I'll have to get it from Netflix. I read the books by Laurie R. King. They were entertaining, but not Holmes. Which is ok, as I rather enjoy all the different takes on Sherlock Holmes. But the actual Holmes would never marry. Nor could I see anyone wanting to marry him.

Ok, I've watched this now. Eh..a disappointment. Another instance where a character has been borrowed to make a movie that really has nothing beyond a few plot points to do with the character.
