Downton Abbey is not the only buzz-worthy upscale/downscale gem from PBS’s Masterpiece this year. Season 2 of Sherlock, with Benedict Cumberbatch as the 21st century version of Arthur Conan Doyle’s ultra-rational hero, begins on Sunday with “A Scandal in Belgravia.” The episode is smartly written by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who) and directed by Paul McGuigan with enough flair to make a cinephile smile – nothing too surprising about that. But it turns out  that Cumberbatch himself inspires the kinds of squeals more often associated with Justin Bieber, as I saw first-hand at a preview screening and Q&A in New York on Wednesday.
