I caught the first of the three Sherlock episodes on the BBC iPlayer. The episode is called The Empty Hearse and it refers to the fact that Sherlock faked his death at the end of the last season. The episode is full of speculation as to how he’d done it picking up right where the teaser webisode left off. You should be sure to watch that first.
The episode had the return as its main thread while the subplot had to do with a major terrorist attack on Parliament. Be sure to pay attention and you’ll get to see a bit more of the Holmes family. Overall it was a fun episode. You get to see how the characters have (tried to) moved on in the wake of Sherlock’s departure.
Episode 2 aired tonight and the final episode will air next Sunday. I’ve already downloaded the second episode but I’ll have to wait until tomorrow to watch it.
