TV Review: Sherlock “The Lying Detective” Season 4 Episode 2

January 10, 2017

Last week’s episode ‘The Six Thatchers’ (Series 4 Episode 1) received some mixed reviews in the media. Some were praising, others were less positive. The Guardian’s review even resulted in co-creator and the episode’s writer Mark Gatiss rebutting their critique in verse. The episode for most felt like a step away from the format we’ve been used to seeing, whether this was deliberate or accidental, in the end it doesn’t matter as what’s done is done. The biggest shockwave, the death of Mary Watson, will now result in tidal wave ripples that affect not just the characters but also where the story goes. This week’s episode ‘The Lying Detective’ has us entering into much darker territory, particularly with Mary’s ominous posthumous message “Go to Hell, Sherlock”.

DVD Review: Sherlock “The Abominable Bride” (UK, 2016)

February 21, 2016

When the BBC brought us Sherlock in 2010 it was a fresh updated consulting detective Sherlock Holmes with his partner Dr John Watson taking on some complex mysteries and solving crimes. With Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Watson, we were taken on a revival of some of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories set in a modern 21st century environment. Since its inception the show has become hugely popular and with both of its lead stars now having successful film careers has forced the hand of its creators to now spread out its servings. Technically ‘The Abominable Bride’ is a stand-alone episode but it does sort-of bridge the gap between the Season 3 finale and the Season 4 first episode which we won’t get until 2017 if we’re lucky. Spoilers ahead …... Continue Reading
