Watched the second episode of series 3 last night, and it occurred to me that those two are the Marvel Ultimates version of Frazier and Niles Crane.

Re: Sherlock - Series 3

Both episodes thus far have disappointed me. I love the characters and their interaction, but I also love the mysteries. I think the first two series had a perfect balance of the two, each episode had a solid mystery plot and fantastic character development. With series three they have focused too much on the characters to the detriment of the story.

By no means is it all bad, Sherlock's best man speech was brilliant and I loved it, but at the same time there were moments during the episode when I found myself bored and wishing for things to move along. Something I never felt during any of the series one and two episodes.

I truly hope that episode three returns to the formula of earlier episodes and has a more developed mystery plot to go along with the Cumberbatch/Freeman banter.

What BobTheSkutter failed to mention is that our weird theory is based on the original CAM story in the book. Holmes and Watson break into CAM's home as the only way to protect a blackmail victim, and end up witnessing his murder. They decline to help Lestrade solve it.

Mark Gatiss has made that comparison. Not the Marvel part, the Frasier/Niles part.

Wanda Ventham is BC's Mum? She was one of my teenage crushes (UFO, The Lotus Eaters, Dr Who, etc).

Thought they were good eps, a little light on story but excellent character work. I really hope there isn't a cliffhanger because we won't get a resolution 'til 2016.

Re: Sherlock - Series 3

More like the first two seasons, plenty of recognisable riffing on stories from the canon, a good villain - though they perhaps overplayed the Bond/Hannibal style references cos he’s played by Mads’s brother - and good laughs.


Didn’t like the cliffhanger, though, which really sparks a “what, *again*?” feeling in me. Or indeed a "flogging a dead horse" feeling...
