Dr. Joan Watson: [Frustrated with having to go through so much paperwork on her own] Did you know that in a building without fire sprinklers, the maximum travel distance to stairwells needs to be 150 feet. But, in a building with sprinklers, it can be 200.
Sherlock Holmes: Well, it seems rude to make evacuees run an additional 50 feet whilst also getting wet, but I assume that's not your point.

The 'human' factor
4 March 2016 | by Left_backSee all my reviews

As stories go this episode was not a real standout, except it delved into the human relationship of Captain Gregson to quite a degree.

There was nothing in this episode about the through plot of Sherlock's father's attempted assassination, so the 'human' factor was given to developing a story of Capt Greyson's social involvement with a former detective.

We are well into the 4th season and by this time writing/production teams will either go with the flow and keep the successful formula of a show going to keep audience and ratings, or they will delve into the unknown to see how far they can take it into challenges unforeseen.

With the time limit of hour-long episodes any time taken to flesh out character development is time taken from solving the crime of the week. So the artifice of exposition comes in handy to get to the resolution of the crime, as in this case, in order to bring down the criminal.

Some fans would wish to see Moriarty again, as dastardly superior criminals often get better written stories, but the introduction of Morland Holmes is a good distraction.
