Story | Jan 16, 2014 | 5:22 PM"Sherlock" (PBS, Sundays). Wreathed in the glory that is Benedict Cumberbatch's current status as an international sex symbol -- "The Thinking Woman's Crumpet," he has been called, in the land of crumpets -- comes the third season of Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat's 21st century update of Arthur Conan Doyle's deerstalkered sleuth. Its return, certainly in public television terms, but beyond them as well, constitutes a bona fide event. If it is not the only 21st century update of Conan Doyle's deerstalkered sleuth currently on television (elementary, my dear readers, there's "Elementary"), it is the one with the pop cultural weight (and the crumpet). (All right, Jonny Lee Miller, you are hot, too.) And it is the one that more fully inhabits the Now, the sparkly and unsettling world in which the present looks like the future; it is full of visual tricks 'n' tropes more usual for EDM videos than for narrative melodrama, as Sherlock (it's all first names here) slips in and out of his "mind palace," wherein the workings of his Ferrari intellect and server-farm memory are three-dimensionally externalized. At times, it runs pretty close to science fiction.
