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

Goofs

When Watson, Holmes and Lestrade talk about the dead person in the car who had been supposed to be on the crashed airplane, Lestrade mentions that his passport was stamped in Berlin. One can see that it is a UK passport, but European citizens' passports are never stamped when travelling within the EU and/or Schengen area, not even when leaving or entering. See more »

Jolly good show :)
2 January 2012 | by isil-foxSee all my reviews

After a long wait, here finally is, the new Sherlock. And I must say it was worth the wait and a really good beginning of the year it is. So what to say about it? The answer is nothing because if I wanted to describe to you all the interesting points I would spoil it for you, and I am not going to do that. Just watch an be prepare not to blink the whole time. Because acting is superb, storyline so nicely thought out that incorporates the feel of the books, the energy of the actors so vivid and believable that you start to wish for Sherlock being real. BBC outdid themselves jet again. Next Sunday cant come faster :) And I will be waiting, glued to the chair.
