From Johns meeting with an old friend in Russell Square to the flat in Baker Street and on around the capitals streets, London is as important a part of the Sherlock universe as anything else. In keeping with Conan Doyles original work, the companions race around the streets and boroughs of the city beneath a series of landmarks, bright lights and double-decker buses. When they leave the city to visit Dartmoor, London is noticeable by its absence and on returning to Baker Street, everyone is very much at home.

The man behind the most recent Bond soundtracks created a beautiful score for Sherlock along with Michael Price. At first the main theme is a little bit odd, moving at an awkward pace that makes you think youre not quite going to like this. On further listening however it is a comfortable, warm melody and you want to spend more time with it, much like the central character.
