Storyline

Moriarty comes close to stealing the Crown Jewels to prove it might be done but allows himself to be caught. Sherlock gives evidence at the trial where Moriarty has scared the jury into acquitting him and later visits Sherlock, camply taunting him with his superior computer skills, seemingly capable of any crime. Sherlock rescues two children abducted by his enemy, but his brilliantly accurate deductions, leading police to believe he may have been an accomplice in the kidnapping, get him arrested, going on the run with John. After a further encounter with Moriarty, who has persuaded a journalist to publish that he is an innocent actor paid by Sherlock to masquerade as his enemy for Sherlock's own glory, the two meet atop a very high building.

Thank You,BBC!Thanks a lot!
18 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Episode 1 already made my year...Episode 2 was good,episode 3,Epicness!! It starts off rather slowly....and then the awesomeness parade begins!!Sherlock is one of those rare TV Shows which keeps on getting better with every episode.The writing is tight,not many loopholes and it is complemented by some brilliant performances from Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. Speaking about Episode 3,its Sherlock v/s Jim Moriarty all the way..Moriarty is hell bent on bringing Down his enemy of all time and he does the same,one step at a time! I'm really not gonna say more than this,because,then I'll be committing a crime of spoiling your experience. Those who haven't started watching this series,do yourselves a favor,start now! Its never too late!
