Star Trek Discovery, Off the Grid – 2

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle created Holmes back in the late 1800s.   Everyone can read his books, see the movies. Sherlock Holmes has become a kind of icon.

Were one to do a television program about Sherlock Holmes they would either have to turn  one of Doyle’s books into a series,  or run the risk of creating new adventures which might go outside of the parameters; that is, canon.

Recently, there have been two programs; Elementary and Sherlock which have cast the character in the modern day.   Although there are a few references to the past, in both cases, the main character fits into expectation.

In short, whether the series stars  Benedict Cumberbatch or Jonny Lee Miller; they  behave as one expects from Sherlock Holmes.

This has allowed both series to survive with little discordance.

This is not true with Discovery; which is often referred to by its initials; STD.

What do you think?
