The third episode of the third series of Sherlock is full of twists and redirection. We learn much about Mrs. Watson, the Holmes’ parents, and Sherlock’s dog while weaving in and out of a very twisted plot. There are plenty of references to pop culture including calling Sherlock a blunt instrument in reference to James Bond. Just when you think you know what’s coming the show takes a left turn. Right in the middle of the story we find ourselves at the Holmes home for Christmas. Be sure to stick around for the tease for next season at the end. My only real complaint with the episode was the lack of actual detective work. This ends this series and it will probably be a couple of years before we get the next triplet of episodes. I hope they keep them coming.
