We’re chewing our nails for imminent new Sherlocks, starting with Guy Ritchie’s new cinematic Game of Shadows, starring Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law, set for release December 16th. In that case, “the woman” is played by Rachel McAdams. The other upcoming event is a pre-screening for extremely privileged peoples (not our weeping selves) of the new BBC Sherlock season 2. The latter’s unveiling a new Irene Adler, and if this production still of Lara Pulver from the essential Sherlockology is anything to go by (after Ritchie’s stylistic smashes to the face, of course), we’re in for a delectably complicated smolder.
Holmes is always at his best when Irene Adler is around.
@Terrie, I totally agree with you about Irene Adler. What a great character and a perfect foil.
