In this updated take on Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock is a recovering drug addict and brilliant consulting detective. Forced by his wealthy father to take on a live-in drug counselor, Sherlock meets Joan Watson, a former surgeon who accidentally killed a patient. Together, the duo forge a grudging friendship while helping police Inspector Gregson solve various crimes.
The first episode featured little content of concern. Sex was limited to discussion of the criminal having an affair, and an implication that Holmes enjoys kinky sex with prostitutes. Foul language was limited to Holmes using colorful British idioms like “bollocks,” and a few uses of “damn.” Violence was fairly restrained; though a few murder victims were seen lying in pools of blood, the viewer does not see the violence that led to their deaths.
It is PTC policy to reserve traffic-light ratings until three episodes have aired.
