This is the third in the BBC's totally watchable series, starring Benedict Cummerbatch, and Martin Freeman, with both actors playing really believable parts and making a delightful duo. Sherlock has been brought into today; normally, I don't like this, but was instantly captivated by the first episode. (Am no spring chick, but my 93yr old mother loves them as well.) These are not just believable, they are fast and slick, up to date technologically, and are the kind of tv drama that one wants to see more than once. There is so much in them. Worth a punt if 'you' are not sure about buying this and/or have missed the tv. I have them all!

Sigh. This will be considered "heresy" by the hoi polloi, considering the press this series has engendered. But I cannot give the new season of "Sherlock" the hightest of marks, much as I had hoped.

The three new episodes are simply (relatively) vacuous. No main plot--no REAL mystery to solve. What has happened--I am afraid--is that Cumberbatch and Freeman (Sherlock and Watson) now have become SUCH popular stars that the writers have forsaken what got them there in the first place and so now are simply Hollywoodizing the two actors (to which neither seems to mind!), like Lady Gaga or Paris Hilton or Kate. The first episode was "trying" to explain, with lots of smoke and mirrors, how Sherlock survived the Reichenball "fall"! Big time sigh. Too easy. And too much time "explaining it," although, of course, no "real" explanation is given. And then we see just how clever Sherlock continues to be--and it's clever for clever's sake. No real plot here. But I excused it, saying that the audience needed an explanation (but not for 1.5 hours, of course). Then episode 2--another big sigh. Would that wedding reception NEVER end? Pul-eeze. More smoke and mirrors and no real mystery to solve, just bits and pieces either to tantalize the viewers or the scriptwriters simply had nothing better. Episode three picks up a bit--and of course I am eager to see what the next season brings. I love series. The First Season was A-plus, certainly one of the most exciting episodes I've ever seen ("Study in Pink" is a classic!). Ditto for the full episodes of the two first seasons. First time viewers of the series were sure to be confused and turned off, as some have reported to me.

But, please, scriptwriters/producers--get back to a central case and forget about what cute, clever, and camera-ready actors you are featuring. We want great action plots. And of course we're completely ready for Moriarity to re-surface.

I'm not entirely sure why people seem to be so divided on this season; I assume it's because it involves a lot of character building and focus on the relationships in the show. Personally, I think that it's a fantastic turn for the series, and I also think it was extremely important. The books, of course are more crime filled that the last three episodes, but it still does have a lot of focus on the characters and specifically the friendship between Holmes and Watson. As much as it is a crime show, it still needs to be developed every season - it can't be, and (with Moffatt and Gattis behind the show) it won't ever remain the same. Personally, this is my absolute favourite season due to the wittiness and the flawless script. I don't feel much of a need to mention the acting as if you've seen the previous six episodes you're aware of how fantastic the whole cast are.

Wonderful, looking forward to the next episodes. So cleverly updated and yet the original storylines are discernable. Brilliant dialogue and the two main characters are unforgettable.

Distinguished reviewers are right in saying that this Series has divided a heretofore united and happy camp of Sherlock fans. Why are we, a minority, raise our voices in criticising Episodes 1 and particularly 2 of Series 3? The answer is obvious. It is because we care. It is because we love "Sherlock" and want it to be the best it can be. When we fell in love with Sherlock, it was not because it provided us with the slightly more exciting version of Eastenders (we don't watch Eastenders), but because the series was completely different, and deeply human. From the very first seconds of "Study in Pink" I knew that Gatiss and Moffat were serious about what they were doing and were going to treat the characters as human beings, not as caricatures of themselves or plot devices.

What happened in Episodes 1 and 2 and what some people call "character development" was in my opinion an unashamed flirting with the fan base coupled with pints and pints of oozy sentimentality. We know how Sherlock and John feel about each other. How do we know? Mostly from what they do for each other - which for John is clear from what he does for Sherlock in "Study in Pink", and for Sherlock - from what he does for John in the very next episode "The Blind Banker". This was the beauty of particularly Season 1 (Season 2 already got more wordy): there was no need for pathetic wedding speeches. One worried look by Sherlock in a taxi was enough. The dialogue was concise and understated. This, in conjunction with brilliant cinematography and music, was what made Series 1 great.

And yet, and yet. Sherlock Series 3 is still the best thing on TV - but not because it is good by itself, but because the rest is so bad and "Battlestar" and "Fringe" are finished, and "Homeland" has gone pear-shaped.
