映画のイングリッシュ 031: Sherlock S2E1 Vocab
Today we are going to start series 2 of Sherlock, with series 2 episode 1, A Scandal in Belgravia. Plus we are going to continue with the BY series and look at two more uses for the word BY.
Sherlock Holmes and his Internet-blogging friend Dr. John Watson are summoned to Buckingham Palace to deal with a matter of national importance. Sherlock’s brother, Mycroft Holmes, tells them that dominatrix Irene Adler has been in touch with Palace officials to tell them she has in her possession embarrassing photos of one of the younger royals, a regular client. She hasn’t asked for money and there has been no suggestion from her that she is blackmailing anyone. Holmes meets her and is fascinated by her intellect and boldness. She’s obviously in trouble however and clearly has something that a CIA black ops team is out to retrieve.
