Sherlock – the unaired pilot

Gah, I love Sherlock. I complain and crib about the plot-holes and over-dramatic cinematography that pays less attention to the actual mysteries, but I still love Sherlock.

I even liked the way Sherlock confronted the killer here better. It made sense in a way the actual pilot didn’t.
