Storyline

Sherlock waits to see where Moriarty will make his posthumous move. One mysterious case in particular baffles Scotland Yard but Sherlock is more interested in a seemingly trivial detail. Why is someone destroying busts of the late Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher? Is there a madman on the loose, or is there a much darker purpose at work, something with its roots deep in Mary Watson's past?

Mycroft Holmes: What you're about to see is classified beyond top secret. Is that quite clear? Don't minute any of this. Once beyond these walls, you must never speak of it. A D-notice has been slapped on the entire incident. Only those within this room, code-names Antarctica, Langdale, Porlock and Love, will ever know the whole truth.

Not What I Hoped for
5 January 2017 | by ahmad_nadalSee all my reviews

I am sure this episode isn't like anyone was expecting, it's not really this important, We don't really care about Mary Morstan or here future, we only care about Sherlock Vs. Moriarty.

That doesn't mean that the episode was bad but it should have been in the previous season or something not in this season "the final". we were expecting an epic start for the name of "Sherlock Holmes" final show.

Can't really imagine why they wasted one of only 3 episodes in this thing and what make them relying on only 2 episode to end this epic war. I can only hope the just don't disappoint us.

I will give it 8/10. Because again it's not a bad episode but it's not the time really.
