Bucharest was horrified by the presence of James D’Arcy throughout the filming for Sherlock. If you knew anything about Detective Sherlock Holmes, forget it all. We have a new and interesting perspective on the famous detective. Holmes (James D’Arcy) is reinvented in an invigorating and welcome manner. The young Sherlock is about twenty years old, eager to assert himself and slightly arrogant. It is not at all that cold and calculated machine, but on the contrary, it is deeply human.
