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

Well acted which will keep your attention
1 January 2012 | by (London) – See all my reviews

The BBC now and again produce a show that is worth the license fee and this is one of them. Sherlock Holmes in the digital age with a plot that keeps you in suspense all the way. Holmes and Watson investigate a case of blackmail threatening to topple the monarchy and uncover links with international terrorism, rogue CIA agents and a conspiracy at the heart of government. However, the Baker Street sleuth finds himself involved on a more personal level when he becomes locked in a battle of wits with Irene Adler, a woman who is as cold, ruthless and brilliant as himself......Benedict Cumberbatch (Holmes) and Lara Pulver (Irene)ooze a hidden sexual chemistry that keeps the plot ticking along at a dramatic pace.....Looking forward to the next show on Sunday 8 January 2012.
