Trivia

The address Sherlock calls Watson to, 360 Purcell St, is not in fact an abandoned theatre, but a council estate. See more »

Goofs

Carrier pigeons, or more correctly homing pigeons, only fly home. You cannot attach a return message to the leg of one after it arrives home and then let it go expecting it to take the message back - yet this is what Holmes says he saw. See more »

Quotes

Gareth Lestrade: [re: Sherlock] Uh, Miss, no offense but could you give him a little bit of space? Because he's doing that thing. You know, when's on to something, he does that-that thing...
Dr. Joan Watson: [annoyed] Yes, I know that thing!

Maybe the weakest so far.
28 September 2013 | by (Memphis, TN, USA) – See all my reviews

Although just as engaging and entertaining as the rest of the series, this plot has far too many holes to meet the standard set in the first season. Holmes' conclusions are too fantastic; his methods are highly questionable; his assumptions often factually incorrect; and his last source of information is pure magic. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come... But since this episode appears to merely set up future intrigue with the introduction of new old characters and an open-ended investigation regarding a larger conspiracy, the weak plot is almost forgivable, provided these implied story lines are developed further. I give the writers an "E" for effort, but a "D" for creativity and quality.
