It's just been on Alibi and Ive recorded them all. If I could email them to you I would grin

It's on iTunes. I think the first and second series together were about a tenner.

Or you could get the DVD from your local library.

I watched 'Sherlock' series 1 from this website,

There ARE pop-ups that appear, mostly ads, but if you keep closing them the programme will play. Lots of other great series available too. Very occasionally the link may be broken but I find if you google the exact series and episode there are usually a few links to be found online.

Ooh, one other thing......only click the 'play' button that shows within the programme window, the other apparent 'plays' or 'downloads' are just ads that you don't need. Be patient though, can take up to 30 seconds for playback to begin after clicking.
If you scroll down you'll see that all episodes from all 3 series are there, I just checked. And it's all free, did I mention that? You're not downloading, only viewing.
Happy Sherlock-ing! smile

HMV did have a Series 1 and 2 box set for £10. I know you probably don't want series 2, but it seemed like a good buy to me.

bemusedisnottheword Mon 03-Mar-14 12:18:34

Thanks again, will check out all those. I can't wait to get watching grin .

I got all excited before. ds said he had the sherlock Holmes on dvd at his dad's house and I could borrow them. So I got all ready bundled him in the car and took him down to his dad's house double quick. He gets them, brings them out beaming an they were the films not the bbc version. argghhhh

If you have Amazon Prime the first series is available for free via their new Amazon Player.

bemusedisnottheword Mon 03-Mar-14 18:28:02

can I watch amazon prime on a pc? I signed up to it not realising you couldn't watch on a non kindle device. how stupid am I confused

bemusedisnottheword Mon 03-Mar-14 18:33:12

I couldn't work out that link tinsel sad I clicked on and it took me to another link where I had to register to be able to watch it. so I registered and I had to give my credit card details for the site called 247filmz and it had never heard of sherlock

eyestightshut Mon 03-Mar-14 18:53:18

I watch Amazon via our blu-ray player, or you could use an internet enabled games console such as Wii/Playstation/xbox.

TinseltownInTheRain Mon 03-Mar-14 20:34:47

No, ignore ANY pop ups that ask for registration, they are ads! And you certainly do not need to give any credit card details I promise. I never have.
Like I said in my earlier post, close any pop ups that occur, watch the tabs at the top of your screen and close any that show in addition to the main programme screen. There can be a good few initially, but you will get past them. Then click on the play button that occurs within the window with the still-shot of the programme.
The link definitely works bemused, I watched Sherlock series 2 myself last night using it, couldn't resist after reading your thread.

I've been watching them on Veoh. No pop ups etc, pretty good quality. Can't link from my tablet, but just Google veoh sherlock season 1.

TinseltownInTheRain Mon 03-Mar-14 20:46:02

Just to be clear bemused , the play button does not say 'watch now', 'play now' or 'download'. It is a wee white triangle symbol, like you find ona remote control or DVD player. The other 'buttons' will only take you to sites that ask for registration or are full of ads for betting etc. The symbol sits right on top of the ready to play video and disappears when it begins to play.

Hope this helps, if you can get it sorted this site a gem of a find, I've caught up with so many series I've missed, including Downton Abbey and The Good Wife. Not once have I ever parted with card details......I wouldn't do that, I'm a big feartie! wink

It's on American Netflix which you can get via a wii or something like that, also available via prime which you can watch on your pc or windows laptop. You can watch prime on an ipad, just not on an android tablet 'cos they are stupido.

It's ok, my bf bought me the dvds from CEX as a surprise, the entire 3 series. I am so chuffed. I am halfway throughseries 3. They are brilliant. Why haven't I watched these before. I am hooked. I may have a little crush on Sherlock grin
