Yes, we may be a Doctor Who site, but that doesn’t mean we can’t indulge in a few other great TV shows – including, of course, Sherlock, one of the BBC’s biggest hits, co-created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss.
The latter wrote last night’s Series 4 opener, The Six Thatchers, which debuted a whole year after the previous episode, The Abominable Bride… which, actually, is one of the briefest waits for a new series of the show. It was the return of many of our favourite characters: Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes, Martin Freeman as John Watson, Amanda Abbington as Mary Watson, Una Stubbs as Mrs. Hudson, Rupert Graves as Lestrade, and Louise Brealey as Molly Hooper. It’s good to have them back!
Based on Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Adventure of the Six Napoleons, The Six Thatchers was directed by Rachel Talalay (Heaven Sent/ Hell Bent) – but what did you think of it? Was it worth the wait? Was it the best Sherlock so far? Or was it a giant turkey, one which you’d happily forget? Vote in our poll!
Done? Brilliant, thanks!
