Indeed, Homes was quite the addict.

The trailer looks pretty good (Rachel McAdams - whoopee) and it does take some story elements from the actual first Holmes story. But fortunatelt this one has already been reported as a looser interpretation of Holmes than in the books, so some modern flourishes don't put me off anyway.

And it has been added to my 'see it' list!
