10 Gifs or Less: A tale of ‘Sherlock’


It is no secret that I have a fondness for BBC’s Sherlock. When we decided to start a new series of articles called A Show in 10 Gifs of Less, where we try to sum up an entire television show using a few Gifs, I knew right away I wanted do Sherlock (consider that a double entendre if you like).

BBC’s Sherlock, created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss (feel free to shake your fist in the air angrily while saying either of those names) is a modern day take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories about an enigmatic british detective with exceptional powers of deduction and a penchant for the violin. The show stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as his roommate and partner in crime solving, Doctor John Watson. Sherlock and John’s chemistry (whichever way you read it) is phenomenal, the stories are brilliant, and each episode feels like a satisfying short film with a few signature Moffat twists thrown in for extra fun and continuity. Here’s the show in 10 Gifs…

I imagined this would be easy given my love for the series, but then I began to realize this is a PG13 kind of site and I should probably stick to cannon. I also didn’t want to be too spoilery for all those out there who have yet to see the show or scare you away from it for that matter, because it truly is a brilliant watch. Hopefully, I have managed to encapture the awesomeness of the show in 10 Gifs or less. And, because I couldn’t help myself, here’s one more just for fun…
