  • Sherlock's boredom ends with a bang, thanks to a bomber targeting the edifice facing 221B Baker Street. Mycroft approaches Sherlock with the death of government employee Andrew West and his missing copy of the Bruce Partington plans, but a soulless criminal mastermind, speaking through a series of human bombs (innocent Londoners wired to explode), distracts Sherlock, sending him, Watson and Lestrade scurrying through the city to solve a 20-year-old masked murder, an insurance fraud business, a celebrity poisoning (murder), and assassinations surrounding a forgery scheme. Someone is playing with Sherlock, and he rightly suspects it to be his brilliant criminal equal, the mysterious, unseen figure known only to him as Moriarty.

  • Sherlock Holmes is bored - there are no intriguing murder cases to solve. Then a nearby flat is blown up and Holmes starts to think something may be afoot. His brother Mycroft visits and tries to get him to solve a suspected murder case involving an MI6 officer and find the top secret missile plans he had. Holmes is not that interested. The bomb case gets more intriguing, and deadly, when Holmes is contacted by a would-be victim of the bomber. Unless Holmes solves a certain case within 12 hours, the bomb attached to the person will be detonated. Time is of the essence.

  • A bored Sherlock Holmes suddenly has two cases to keep himself occupied. His brother Mycroft approaches him to investigate the death of civil servant Andrew 'Westie' West, whose body was found in the train yards. More importantly, Westie had a USB stick containing the detailed plans for the Bruce Partington missile defense system which cannot be found. Somewhat to Dr. Watson's surprise, Holmes refuses to even respond to his brother's calls or texts; so, out of embarrassment as much as anything else, the good doctor decides to investigate the case himself. Holmes is far more interested in solving DI Lestrade's case of a mad bomber who is spreading fear throughout the city by forcing innocent individuals to act as bombers unless Holmes can solve the puzzles he's presenting to him. What Holmes comes to realize is that both cases are related and he will soon face his arch enemy.
