A Thoroughly Modern SherlockPosted on May 4th, 2012 | By: Bert Ehrmann
It’s almost impossible to successfully update a beloved character/story to modern times and not end up upsetting someone. If those doing the updating go to far in changing things then the character/story will be practically unrecognizable, so why not just do something new rather than the update something old? But if they don’t go far enough and leave the character/story mostly as-is then why update in the first place?
The characters of the Sherlock Holmes series of stories have been updated a couple of different ways the last few years.
