The Gatiss episodes have not been the strongest in any season.
the last episode of series one (The Great Game) was pretty good although Hounds in series two was a disappointment.

Nice touch having Benedict Cumberbatch's real parents (Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton, uncredited) playing the Holmes brothers' parents.
If his parents are named Carlton and Ventham, how come his name is Cumberbatch? Is somebody using a stage name? Was there a remarriage somewhere along the line?

His father's name is Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch. He dropped his last name as his stage name.

They filmed extra scenes to fool the fans.

Re: Sherlock - Series 3

Loved it. It may not have been as good as the best Sherlock has been, but the emphasis on humor and the interplay between Freeman and Cumberbatch was highly entertaining.

Their interactions are so good, it makes me wish they had been together on the same sets for The Desolation of Smaug.

Re: Sherlock - Series 3

I loved it. Its like Moffat and Gatiss picked the best fan-solutions for how Sherlock escaped death and decided, hey lets film them all. I laughed at the first Bond/Bourne-like solution, not really Sherlock's style but I loved it. Then the plot straight from V for Vendetta...

[Mycroft]Do you remember what Papa used to tell us when we were young? Eliminate the impossible and whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.[/Mycroft]

-- but yes, his father shortened his own name for the stage as someone else mentioned. Perhaps he was afraid of people calling him "cucumber patch" or something...

Brilliant, had me laughing all the way through, and they did have me going at the start.

Question is, is what Sherlock said to Phillip (?) actually correct or not?

Maybe a bit too convoluted, especially near the end, and just because Daniel Craig looks cool standing before the London skyline doesn't mean Sherlock has to do it, but it is great to have the show back.

The V for Vendetta plot device aside, I really loved it. Lots of good humour and great tension. I loved the different reactions to Sherlock's return. The show lacked too heavy a mystery, I assume because they had to spend most of it clearing up from last series, but I'm hoping Sunday's ep will make up for that.

Not much of a story but I could watch the characters bounce off each other all day. Highly enjoyable.

Nice that Sherlock got on with Mary rather than trying to come between them.

I wondered if the BBC originally intended to air this season in November.

I don't think it's impossible, probably quite rare but you never know.

Actuially according to the met office...

On 25 September 1895 snow was reported to have fallen at London and Wallington in Surrey making it the earliest fall of snow on the capital.

Someone with the show said that the three 90 minutes movies () are still longer than every "series" of a British sitcom ever made.
Dad's Army series 3, series 4 and series 5 would all beg to differ.
