Two years after the devastating events of The Reichenbach Fall, Dr John Watson has got on with his life.
New horizons and romance beckon in the shape of the beautiful and smart Mary Morstan. But Sherlock Holmes is about to rise from the grave. And even though it's what his best friend wanted more than anything, for John Watson it might well be a case of 'be careful what you wish for!'
In three brand new adventures, Sherlock and John face baffling mystery beneath the streets of London - a wedding that's not quite what it seems and the arrival of the repellent and terrifying blackmailer Charles Augustus Magnussen.
Who is the mysterious disappearing man? How can a Royal Guardsman bleed to death in a locked room? And what is the secret that threatens to blow apart everything the reunited friends hold dear?
Sherlock is back, but will things ever be the same again?

Comments about Sherlock:
Something about the tone of Sherlock's third season seems off compared to the earlier seasons, as though the writer's weren't sure what mood they were trying to set. The characterisations seem to veer off course from what we've seen so far, almost resembling fan fiction at some points, while the plots are getting more and more outlandish.
The writers have expanded their world beyond Baker St and into global espionage, and the show suffers for it, as it becomes less and less believable, and even the backbone of the entire series, the friendship between Sherlock and John, can't anchor the plot in reality anymore. The sense of disconnect throughout the three episodes make Season 3 feel surreal - like it didn't really happen, and at any time we would find out it was all a dream. But we didn't.
Despite the weakness in the writing, the cast still turn out stellar performances (as usual), and the action and mystery still provide a fun ride for the audience.
