Two years after the devastating effects of The Reichenbach Fall, Dr John Watson has got on with his life. New horizons, romance and a comforting domestic future beckon; but, with London under threat of a huge terrorist attack, Sherlock Holmes is about to rise from the grave with all the theatricality that comes so naturally to him. It's what his best friend wanted more than anything, but for John Watson it might well be a case of 'be careful what you wish for'. If Sherlock thinks everything can be just as he left it though, he's in for a very big surprise.

Two of the clients that come to visit Sherlock Holmes are a stepfather and stepdaughter. The stepdaughter is concerned about the sudden disappearance of her online admirer with whom she had regular contact. Sherlock deduces that the stepfather had been using an avatar on the internet to keep tabs on his stepdaughter's actions. This is a reference to Arthur Conan Doyle's short story 'A Case of Identity'.

However, Sherlock should have spotted it was a fake immediately as the skeleton was in a sitting position, fully articulated. Without any ligature tissue to support the bones, the skeleton would be a pile of bones on the chair and floor. Molly, as a doctor, should also have known this. See more
