Sherlock Season 02 Episode 02: The Hounds Of Baskerville



'The Hounds Of Baskerville' opens and starts with what seems an episode of 'Being Human' which is funny because Russell Tovey is in it. However he plays a scared Were-Wolf in that, here he's just playing someone scared of a Were-Wolf type creature.

Tovey's character Henry Knight is the man that manages to drag Sherlock and Watson out of London for basically an entire episode which was great.

It was oddly fantastic to see Sherlock driving a car on the open road and not ordering some Taxi driver around that may or may not be wanting to kill him.

This episode also explored a bit more of the unknowing Sherlock. The doubtful and scared Sherlock that we don't expect to see and neither does he himself.

One of the best moments other than Sherlock's mental break down was hearing Sherlock admit that John is his only friend. Which I'm sure John never doubted but it's nice to see more emotions where Sherlock becomes less of a robot with an understanding for everything bare human emotion.

The Hounds Of Baskerville was once again and interesting case to watch as a viewer simply because I followed the same emotions as Sherlock at most points. This isn't a Sci-FI show I was telling myself, there cannot be actual beasts out there, there has to be some kind of logical explanation. Sherlock is following the same kind of wave length with a few changes, especially the part about this not being a Sci-FI show, he wouldn't be thinking that.

Once again a wonderful episode of Sherlock this week. So far series two has shown it self to be way better than the first series in terms of writing and directing. The cast as always is great even if I feel Russell Tovey was wasted a little.

None the less next week we will hopefully be seeing a huge and maybe final showdown between Sherlock and Moriarty in The Reichenbach Fall.
