  1. What can explain the enduring popularity of Sherlock Holmes? Critic John Powers says it’s that Sherlock “embodies an archetypal aspect of the human psyche” — and appeals to the part of us that loves a good mystery. View in High-Res

  1. David Bianculli, on the new adaptation of Sherlock Holmes airing Sunday October 24 on PBS’s Masterpiece: "This new version isn’t just good. It’s terrific, and the changes  bringing the characters into modern-day London are inspired. Sherlock no  longer injects himself with a seven percent solution of cocaine to get a  buzz when he’s bored or baffled. Now he slaps nicotine patches on his  arm. (Lots of them.) And this new Sherlock Holmes carries a  cell phone — but, like the antisocial misfit that he is, he much prefers  to text than to talk.” View in High-Res
