Mycroft wants his brother Sherlock to investigate the murder of civil servant Andrew West and theft of the Bruce-Partington missile plans. Sherlock, however, prefers to assist Lestrade following a massive bomb blast. The sadistic bomber abducts a string of hostages, who will be released after Sherlock has solved a series of puzzles, including a twenty year old murder, an insurance scam, and the alleged forgery of a long lost painting.

Did You Know?
At the beginning Sherlock is smugly correcting a prisoner's use of past and present tense. In particular, "I WEREN'T a real man" to "I WASN'T a real man".
However, at the end, Sherlock incorrectly asks the question "What if I WAS to shoot you now? Right now?". Which, of course should be what if I WERE to shoot you right now" [the subjunctive]. See more
Just... tell me what happened from the beginning.
