Storyline

As Lestrade fumes over his constant inability to convict the Waters gang of bank robbers, Holmes prepares for his role as best man at Mary and John's wedding. His speech, initially bizarre, turns out to be a moving tribute to his friend whilst he also contributes two anecdotes of recent cases, both unsolved. The first concerns a young guardsman whose life John saved after he was the victim of a 'locked room' attempted murder. The second involves a man who uses the identities of the recently deceased to date different women. As he looks around the wedding party, Holmes suddenly realizes their connected solutions, which also involve Watson's former commanding officer, disfigured war hero Major Sholto.

Trivia

The guardsman is referred to in dialogue as a "Grenadier Guardsman"; however, their distinctive uniforms, with the leek collar badge and buttons grouped in fives, show them all to be Welsh Guards instead. See more »

bravo for Sherlock Season Three
25 January 2014 | by ctotten1See all my reviews

Sherlock is a wonderful series that I look forward to with great anticipation. It is not simply the storyline that keeps me watching every time a new episode airs but the interaction between the characters and that is what makes them so endearing and memorable. With each episode that airs, Sherlock is learning what it is to be more human and the rest of the cast are all contributing to his understanding in their own ways and I think it is delightful. We all learn from our experiences why not Sherlock? I also enjoy the updated time frame, I was skeptical at first, but after the first episode I was entranced with the changes. If the only thing that is of major concern is the mystery, then program a computer and do away with the people. To those who called the second episode "rubbish"...well you are entitled to your opinion...and so am I and I really enjoy this. If someone does not enjoy watching the change that characters, and people, experience due to events in their lives, then why even have theater, plays, movies or entertainment at all?
