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

Trivia

John's blog counter has frozen at 1895. This is an allusion to a poem loved by the show's creators. "221B" was written in 1942 by Vincent Starrett, one of the first Sherlockians. The last two lines are: "Here, though the world explode, these two survive / and it is always eighteen ninety-five." See more »
