Sherlock recap: series four, episode three – The Final Problem

From the unfulfilling gameshow in a secure fort to the weird coda, this episode of ‘the Baker Street Boys’ was a cop-out. We deserve a bit more than this

Spoiler alert: this recap contains spoilers to the Sherlock episode The Final Problem, which aired on 15 January 2017.

Of all the things I was expecting from the final episode of Sherlock, a plot based largely on the format of Leslie Grantham-hosted 90s quiz show Fort Boyard wasn’t one of them. But that’s basically what we got: a series of puzzles solved in different rooms in a secure fort in the middle of the ocean, each one progressing to a final showdown, alas, without Melinda Messenger or a pack of tigers.

Celebrating the UK adventure game TV show

Aaron Birch Jul 13, 2016

The Crystal Maze, Cyber Zone, Fort Boyard... We look back at the UK game shows that dared to ask more than just quiz questions...

If the idea of yet another TV game show with an uninspiring presenter and ever so slight spin on the tried and tested Q&A formula fills you with apathy, you're not alone. Although TV quiz shows often rake in the viewers for a relatively low production budget, hence their popularity with TV studios, the whole genre feels a little stagnant. Perhaps it's the rise of the Internet, a general change in viewer culture, and the changing tastes that come with it. While many shows of the past delighted audiences with images of shiny new appliances, cars, and holidays to far-off destinations, today's shows mostly award cold, hard, and boring cash.

Fifteen to One, Catchphrase: Which other game shows should be revived?

It's game show heaven on television right now. Not only do we have all sorts of new formats making their way to screen, but some old favourites are getting a second lease of life, too - from Fifteen to One (airing daily on Channel 4) to the second series of the revived Catchphrase (Sundays on ITV.)

"This is an easy question: You Bet! It was one of my favourite TV shows and Matthew Kelly was one of my favourite presenters. I love it.

"I can give you some great examples that still amaze me to this day.

She says, "You have to find this key in all these buckets of stuff you don't know what's in it (sic). There's mice and another was blood and another was mice.

"I didn't want to (do this). Tony made me... We won 25,000 Euros, which is like $35,000... Tony's obsessed with it (the show).

"I looked like a crazy person."
