From http://www.tvshowsondvd.com: As we've told you since a month ago, the BBC's upcoming Sherlock release a week from today - on October 31st, Halloween day - is titled "The Complete Series." It will be on both DVD and Blu-ray Disc, and in our last report we showed you a "flat" 2D image of the cover for the slipcase. Now we've got an "exploded" look (or a "beauty shot," if you will) of the packaging, in 3D, demonstrating that this release is the individual season sets, and the separate release for The Abominable Bride, all slid into a new outer case. This image is for the DVD version, but the Blu-ray edition is the same:

Jonny Lee Miller portrays the iconic detective Sherlock Holmes, and Lucy Liu captivates as his legendary investigating partner Dr. Joan Watson in the modern-day drama, Elementary: The Fourth Season. In the latest season, Holmes struggles to maintain his sobriety and attempts to keep his sanity despite the looming threat of a prison sentence. Meanwhile, the crime-solving duo continues to crack some of the NYPD’s toughest cases when old enemies resurface, former files are reopened and new crimes run rampant close to home. Yet, the biggest obstacle the duo must face follows the unexpected arrival of Sherlock’s estranged father, Morland Holmes (John Noble). Does he hold their best interest at heart or is he scheming for something far bigger than all of them combined?
Elementary: The Fourth Season DVD also includes must-watch bonus features such as insights from the cast and crew about the progression of the series in its newest season in the featurette The Sign Of Fourth; an inside look at who and what it takes to be a villain on Elementary in Villainy!; commentary on the standout episode, “Miss Taken” in Mina, Cassie, & Ally; and Father Holmes, a sit down with John Noble to discuss his role as Holmes’ estranged father and the complicated relationship between father and son. Plus, the collection also includes a behind the scenes look at the creation of one of the season’s most extraordinary episodes, Wag the Dog: Hounded.

"Houdini & Doyle," a new series out May 2 on FOX, ia very good. Michael Weston (Elementary's Oscar) stars as Harry Houdini. He partners with "Sherlock Holmes" creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Stephen Mangan) to solve murders. Houdini is not only a magician, but a skeptic, whereas Doyle is looking for proof of the supernatural. Rebecca Liddiard plays Adelaide Stratton, Scotland Yard's first female constable.

"Arthur & George" on Masterpiece (PBS) is a great 3 part miniseries about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his efforts to clear a man accused and convicted of hideous crimes (based on actual events)! It's thrilling and good fun. Don't miss it! Here's our full review.

“Any show in that seen-it-all-before genre that can intrigue, involve and even fool you in its first hour, while leaving you curious to see where it heads in the next, is a show that has accomplished something.” - USA Today, on “Person of Interest” Season 1
“If Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were creating Sherlock Holmes for TV today, chances are very good that he'd be a lot like the Sherlock that CBS has created in their new procedural, ‘Elementary’.” -New York Post on Elementary, Season 1
WGN America becomes the exclusive cable destination for TV’s most popular procedurals, “Elementary” (which critics called "gripping" and "edgy") and “Person of Interest” (touted as "gritty" and a "rare crime drama"), premiering Monday, August 31 and Tuesday, September 1, respectively, in the network’s new “Prime Crime” line-up. Airing weekdays, back-to-back, starting at 7:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. CT, the two hit crime dramas join fan-favorite “Blue Bloods,” in the new programming block that kicks off with a binge-worthy 100-episode event. Over the first two weeks, a total of 100 installments of “Elementary” and “Person of Interest” will give viewers the opportunity to watch these compelling series from the very beginning, diving into the cases and capers that have unfolded since their television debuts. WGN America acquired the exclusive off-network rights to the coveted dramas in 2014.
In "Elementary," Jonny Lee Miller (who plays Sherlock Holmes) and Lucy Liu (who plays Dr. Watson) are a modern-day crime solving duo that cracks the NYPD's most impossible cases; and in "Person of Interest," Michael Emerson (in the role of billionaire Harold Finch) and Jim Caviezel (as CIA operative John Reese) prevent violent crimes before they happen with the help of an advanced surveillance system known as "The Machine." Taraji P. Henson, who currently stars in "Empire," is a regular in the first four seasons of the series.
PROGRAMMING SCHEDULE Monday, August 31 (7:00 pm – 1:00 a.m./ET) “Elementary” debuts with six back-to-back episodes
Tuesday, September 1 (7:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m./ET) “Person of Interest” debuts with three back-to-back episodes, followed by three episodes of “Elementary”
Labor Day Marathon, Monday, September 7 (1:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m./ET) 12-hour marathon features episodes of both “Elementary” and “Person of Interest”
Representing the two most significant acquisitions across cable premiering in 2015, “Elementary” and “Person of Interest” continue WGN America’s transformation as an entertainment destination with popular originals, including breakout hit “Salem,” Emmy-nominated “Manhattan” and upcoming dramas “Underground” and “Outsiders,” both premiering next year.

Benedict Cumberbatch takes a break from awards season to film Sherlock with Martin Freeman

If you love obnoxious, self-destructive detectives, you'll probably love the new show "Backstrom" on FOX starting January 22. It's really good, so watch it! Rainn Wilson of "The Office" plays the lead character, a self-destructive police detective. He reminds me a lot of House or Sherlock... wonderful cast and well-written show.
