Sherlock Series 2 Episode 3: The Reichenbach Fall

You know, I’ve GOT to admit, I’m breathing a touch easily …

Whilst also feeling a touch smug …

You see, I’ve JUST seen the last episode of series two of Sherlock, and, yes, I’m impressed.

Out and out blown away, I think.

And also wanting to see series 3, as and when it appears.

And, yes, I know there’s a series three, due.

I follow Stephen Moffat on Twitter, you know.

Comes in handy, when he kills off Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s best known creation … !


Well …

He’s only doing what Sir Arthur himself did, all those years ago …


Episode 3, Series 2The Reichenbach Fall —is loosely based on Cona Doyle’s The Final Problem and sees Sherlock testifying against a freshly caught James Moriarty, after the criminal mastermind is caught: simultaneously breaking into The Tower of London, HMP Pentonville and the Bank of England.

The only problem, there, of course … ?

Is that Moriarty manages to indulge in some discrete jury nobbling, to have himself declared innocent.

And let loose on London … ?

Let loose on London, manages to arrange a kidnapping and a couple of shootings: in order to work towards Holmes eventual death.


I’m going to laugh, there, actually, in a gently knowing sort of way …

Because, of course, I — as both the producers of this series and anyone who’s Sir Arthur’s work — know that this isn’t quite the whole story, of course.

At any rate, I do know this.

This reworking of the Sherlock Holmes has been SUPERB: I’m not the only one to think so, going by the activity on Twitter!

Can I be frank … ?

I can’t WAIT for series three.

Despite having read the books …

I want to see what happens … !
