5.0 out of 5 stars If you like Sherlock Holmes and have never tried these out, do!
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.)...

1.0 out of 5 stars Dropped the ball and in great danger of jumping the shark.
Let me give the writers of Sherlock a little tip - don't do season ending cliff-hangers if you can't think of a satisfactory resolution to them. Both the first and second seasons ended with cliff-hangers, the start of the second season opted for the rather cheap strategy of simply dissolving the tension with a little humorous moment; disappointing, but forgivable.

5.0 out of 5 stars They're back!, 8 Mar 2014

The actors get most of the credit for this series but I've never seen such ingenious writing! My only complaint is that this series make other shows look amateurish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sherlock Series 3: Review, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sherlock - Complete Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Amazing! Benedict Cumberbatch surprised us all with his fabulous drunk scenes and best man speech. Sherlock is developing his detective skills, and, much to my astonishment, is becoming a human being at last. The relationship between Sherlock and Molly is coming on in leaps and bounds, and (for those of you who haven't seen it yet) Tom is certainly a surprise. Martin Freeman shows a war of emotions when Sherlock and him are reunited, and sadly, Anderson and Donovan have been brought back too. The High Functioning Sociopath features a lot, and the Character Mary is introduced - a tragedy for all the Johnlock fans out there. Mycroft definitely is back, and Greg Lestrade has had many an argument with Sherlock about his name. This series has many emotional, funny, and exciting moments, and I recommend this series to anyone, it is just as good as series 1 and 2. By the way, I guarantee you will be weeping by the end of episode 3, welcome back Jim! Yes, I know.

Series 1 and 2 were excellent and the third has no let them down. The last episode particularly was so convoluted that it had to be watch again to fully appreciate the twist etc. Roll on the fourth series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant series!, 6 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sherlock has been a brilliant series from the start, but Series 3 really saw the writers and characters shine. There's much more room for character development in between the twists and unexpected turns, which lead to some truly incredible acting moments from both Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch. Amanda Abbington is a fantastic addition as John Watson's new wife, Mary Morstan, and while the tone of series 3 is darker than the previous two series, there's still so much room for comedy and fun moments between the dramatic scenes. Keep an eye out for an exciting cameo in the epic last few moments of 'His Last Vow'!

People forget/not twigged that this is a show about a detective and not a detective show! It is only based on the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. If you want a show that cleaves a lot closer to the original texts then dig out the brilliant granada tv series with the late Jeremy Brett. The writers have taken the central relationship of the two leads as the foundation of the show and it works brilliantly. For me each episode is a mini film - especially given the calibre of the directors that are drafted in to helm each one. Enjoy this while it lasts!!
