It was interesting that The Empty House, the story where Holmes returns after his apparent death, was on the radio the other day. Comparing the two is fascinating. :D

Latest Episode (Series 3, Episode 2: The Sign of Three) was hilarious.

Wish it was a weekly thing

I'm recording all three to watch one after the other.

Just had a look at the BBC thread, and there's mixed reactions to this series.

There's a lot of dislike for the last 2 episodes out there, as well as people who loved them.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Yeah and all the fan fic writers who can't get over the fact that Sherlock and John aren't gay. :roll:

Why do people want them to be gay? Bromances are to be encouraged, in my opinion.

Have avoided all spoilers.

The end of the episode seemed a little sad to me. Like he was alone again. But still I loved the whole episode. A great part was when people were tearing up about the speech and Sherlock didn't understand why.

Looking forward to the third episode.

Just seen the final episode and what a brilliant finale to the series. I love the way they have managed to intertwine different stories from the books to make something new and fresh.

As for the ending;

Oh that was so good! :D

Spoiler: show
An interesting use of Mary, who in the books is said to be dead by the time Sherlock returns from faking his death. As she never existed in this version (as Mary), that sort of works. I predict that she and the child will die in the next few episodes . . . :o I remember thinking that Moriarty's death was a bit of a shame considering what a challenge he was for Sherlock. It will be interesting to see how they handle that. And Rupert Murdoch the super villain - I love it! :lol:
