What Did You Think of Sherlock: The Lying Detective?

You wait 12 months for a new series of Sherlock, and look – we’re already more than halfway along!
Benedict Cumberbatch’s Great Detective has come up against “the most dangerous, the most despicable human being that [he has] ever encountered” – Culverton Smith, played by Toby Jones. And wasn’t it fantastic to see Jones taking on such a dark role?! We’ve seen him do creepy in Amy’s Choice, he was haunted in The Witness for the Prosecution, and was loveable in Marvellous – and his Sherlock part proved suitably chilling.
The episode again saw some familiar faces, and some surprises too (it is Sherlock, after all), but what did you make of it? The DWC would like to know your thoughts on The Lying Detective, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Nick Hurran (The God Complex).
Ah, but how…? Hmm. OH! I know. How about a poll? Yeah, that sounds good to me; what about you?

Voted? Lovely. Cheers, me dears. That’s not all, however – oh no. Expand on your thoughts in the comments section below and we’ll collate them sometime in a future in a feature series we’ll call… Notes from 221B! No, that’s rubbish. We’ll think of something; just bear with us…
Next week: Mr. Holmes has to deal with The Final Problem.
