The Irregulars, a dark, fun and twisted take on Sherlock Holmes

First off, I just want to say I was very fortunate to be given an opportunity to review this and I will keep it spoiler free. I’m a big fan of Sir Arthur Donan Coyle’s works so when I read up on the premise of this show, I thought it was different and had an interesting premise. The Irregulars follows the story of a group of friends who are hired by Doctor Watson and his mysterious partner Sherlock Holmes, to solve crimes and murders. There is a supernatural twist in this show that makes the story fresh and unlike the other adaptations we’ve seen on the famous characters while adding an extra level of horror to the story telling.

The ensemble of characters in the show are good and interesting! The cast works really well together and they all have great chemistry. Thaddea Graham shines as the lead, Bea, who is a cunning street smart girl and an excellent protagonist. Really the whole cast does a fantastic job and for the sake of not spoiling anything, I won’t say anymore. 🙂

If you’re coming into this series rolling your eyes at what is yet another interpretation of Sherlock Holmes mysteries, please give it a chance. Its completely different. If you’re not a fan of horror, then I’d maybe give this a pass as some of the content featured is pretty gruesome and brutal. I was happy to see that Netflix also picked this show up for a second season! I say congrats to the team behind the series, and keep em’ coming!

The Irregulars launches globally on Netflix on March 26, 2021.
