If you ask yourself the following questions:

  • Where can I watch the BBC Sherlock Season 1 episodes online?
  • Where can I watch the BBC Sherlock Season 2 episodes online?
I have the answers to your questions.


Is Sherlock (BBC) on Netflix?

Yes. Sherlock (BBC) Seasons 1 and 2 are on Netflix instant streaming.

Is Sherlock (BBC) on Hulu?

No. Sherlock (BBC) is not on Hulu.

Is Sherlock (BBC) on Youtube?

Youtube currently does not own the syndication rights to Sherlock (BBC), but user Jojo fever on Youtube has uploaded episode 2 from Season 1 titled: "The Blind Banker." User Jojo fever appears to be a person from the country of India, and does not own the syndication rights to Sherlock. This user appears to be violating copyright laws. Episodes like this do not stay up on Youtube for very long. They are removed when the video is reported for violating copyright laws.

Hulu only has clips related to a cartoon Sherlock Holmes and clips related to the Sherlock (BBC) movie starring Robert Downey Jr.

Of the three, Netflix is your best bet for catching up on Seasons 1 and 2 of Sherlock (BBC). Of course, this requires a paid subscription to Netflix instant streaming.

Sherlock (BBC) is a modern-day version of Sherlock Holmes, based on the stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Benedict Cumberbatch plays Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman plays his sidekick, Dr. John Watson. Actor Andrew Scott plays Moriarty in the BBC series. I think Andrew Scott plays an excellent Moriarty. His character is very believable to be a sociopath.

The show was created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss as they were on their train commute to work on the show, Doctor Who. (Read my recent post on Doctor Who).

In the BBC television version, each Sherlock episodes run about 1 hr. 30 min. each in length, and airs on local PBS television stations in the U.S. as a part of Masterpiece Mystery!

If you have seen Sherlock Seasons 1 and 2, then you might be wondering how Sherlock faked his own death. You can watch Sherlock: "How he faked his death" here.

Trivia fact: 

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman also have acting roles in The Hobbit. Benedict Cumberbatch is the voice of Smaug the dragon, and Martin Freeman plays young Bilbo Baggins.
