New Web Series: ‘Baker Street’ Based on Sherlock Holmes

Baker Street is a new web series based on Sherlock Holmes. It’s genderbent, with both leads female, which is perfectly fine with me – as I’ve said on Twitter, I don’t care what juxtaposition of gender you make Holmes and Watson, as long as under no circumstances do you make it a romantic relationship. That would be to go entirely against the fundamental spirit of the relationship as Conan Doyle wrote it.

In Baker Street, Jane Watson has dropped out of medical school in Britain and returned to Canada to help out her family in a time of crisis. Unfortunately, they have rejected her, and her mysterious roommate is driving her mad. This feels a little lower-budget than some others, but is also much more dynamic and willing to shift physical settings and scenes. The pacing and camerawork are uneven and the character of Sherlock is both underwritten and underwhelmingly acted. Not a fan of this so far, though I do love the concept and would love to see this done well. (PSA: For web series I really do love and which are incredibly sharply written and acted, see my list of 8 Favorite Literary Web Series)
