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

Benedict's favorite scene is the ultra-slow motion scene where he opens Irene's safe and they take down the evil CIA agents. "I'll be proud to show that to my grandchildren." See more »

Goofs

Wow...
15 November 2012 | by wormyourhonor-529-242103See all my reviews

"i was hooked the entire way. man and when it ended i pulled my hair and said wow for minutes on end, m lips trembled, my heart raced. the best thing ever! wow! The best!"-that's what i said after i watched this episode which is by far the best episode of the season in my opinion. The only reason i even registered was because i wanted to rate and review this episode since this is a true genuine epic masterpiece! i seriously don't have words to express the awesomeness of it; probably because I've just watched it and I'm still shaking but even if just for the sake of watching this episode watch the show. wow! This might just be one of the best episodes in any TV show of all time. Maybe one of the best movies too!
