Mycroft wants his brother Sherlock to investigate the murder of civil servant Andrew West and theft of the Bruce-Partington missile plans. Sherlock, however, prefers to assist Lestrade following a massive bomb blast. The sadistic bomber abducts a string of hostages, who will be released after Sherlock has solved a series of puzzles, including a twenty year old murder, an insurance scam and the alleged forgery of a long lost painting.

In the beginning of the episode, the time that passes between Dr Watson leaving his and Sherlock's apartment and the explosion across 221b Baker Street, is less than a minute. However, Dr Watson only hears about the incident the next morning. He couldn't have gotten so far away from Baker Street in so short a time that he didn't hear the explosion when it happened.
