Storyline

Following a bizarre stand-off with master criminal Moriarty, ended when the villain responds to a phone call, Sherlock interrupts his investigation of a rural slaying when summoned to Buckingham Palace. Dominatrix Irene Adler has incriminating photos of a royal princess which Sherlock is engaged to retrieve; however, having engineered a meeting with Irene, Sherlock realizes that she has far more dangerous evidence in her possession, sought by rogue CIA agents, which causes her to fake her death and pass the facts, encrypted in her camera phone, to Sherlock. Having deciphered the explosive result and discovered a government plot, Sherlock has to consider if Irene can be trusted and indeed if she is in league with Moriarty. Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

When Sherlock and Mycroft go to identify a body at Barts Hospital, they enter a door marked "Morgue". Like most British hospitals, Barts has a Mortuary, not a Morgue which is a mainly American word. See more »

One of the greatest things to see during your life.
1 February 2012 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

One of the best things I have even seen in my life! Wonderfully, stunningly, incredibly, smartly, cunningly, shockingly, beautifully, fabulously, shiveringly, amazingly GOOD! If it is possible to have an orgasm while watching something this is as close as it gets!

This is great as a detective story. Wonderful as a drama. Pure as a research on human mind. This is incredible in so many ways it's hard to explain...

Technically perfect. Storytelling, editing, acting, directing, crafts - everything and every little details at its heights.

With no doubts one of the best adaptations of Arthur Conan Doyle's work ever made in history of Cinema and TV.

I can't believe I had shivers and tears while watching this...

Don't miss.
