It's Not Magic but...

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

If you like your tv shows to feature Mentalists, quirky time travelling Doctor types, forensic investigators and even cane-bearing medics then seek out 'Sherlock', the BBC's contemporary take on the famous Baker Street dwelling sleuth.

I understand three 90 minute episodes have been made and the first one, screened on Sunday, was a cracker.

Brought to you by the makers of Doctor Who...check it out.

Cheers

Seen all 3 episodes. Very well done and I was skeptical of retelling of Holmes in 2010 England. Word is more are ordered.

Wow - cool. My buddies tell me the third episode airs tomorrow. You got a working time machine or something?

My wife has a friend who is somehow involved in the production and showed a screening disc to a group of friends while we were visiting some months ago. I'd love to see them again but I don't see it on BBC Americas lineup. Maybe it will air in the states at a later date. I hope so anyway.

I eagerly await reports of Sherlock and also The Deep tomorrow.

And hope Moffat's Dr Who series makes it here as well. Also Mongrels - heard that's funny.
