It’s been 12 years since The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring opened in cinemas. Nine of us had arranged to watch the first screening on the first day. We remember the general intake of breath when Legolas first appeared— “Sino yan?” “Nicholas daw, Nicholas.” And sniggering at the people who cried when Gandalf fell with the Balrog. And still crying over Boromir even if we knew that was coming.
A Song of Ice and Fire is a direct descendant of The Lord of the Rings, with plenty of sex, moral dilemmas, and characters who are neither completely good nor completely evil.
We know exactly how Sherlock fans will react to the last image in the trailer: “Uuuyyyyyy Watson meets Holmes.”
