For me, it's just the very sad lack of quality television out there that makes me sad that something so good is over so quickly.  More, smaller meals rather than three feasts...then nothing for a year or more would be my preference.

I feel the same about "Luther" even though the series is longer.  I don't watch much serialized TV for that reason.  I love British dramas but I don't like that they seem to be over and done just like *snap*.  :(

I'm going to find a nice long one on Netflix (MI5, perhaps?) and deal with it that way.

Yes !!

It's one of the best English comedy shows ever !

Simon Pegg & Nick Frost from the Cornetto films are in it - along with most of the guest actors. And Edgar Wright directed it.

Bill Bailey is in it too. It's brilliant. It's very nerdy and full of pop culture references.

Try and find the 1st episode on You tube :) x

I loved the second episode, I knew it was going to be amazing but it actually pleasantly surprised me. So good.

It WAS there for streaming - I had it in my queue for ages.  I just never got around to watching it.  Now, it's only on CD.  Netflix had a big purge of streaming content recently.  :(

You should try and find Spaced somewhere else. It's only 14 episodes in total.

Nice! Hopefully we won't have to endure another two year wait then, maybe just one?

That would be cool seeing as I only started watching Sherlock a year ago :lol

Last night I watched The Empty Hearse & The Sign Of Three back to back . . .

While they are great episodes - they both feel lacking in some department compared to the first two series.

I enjoyed this last one, but not as much as the first. I thought the show should've been more linear. Felt it jumped around too much

This is a show by Moffat and Gatiss. Don't expect too much linear storytelling. :lol

Personally I thought it worked so well in this episode. Using the wedding speech as a framing device for the plots, and then bringing it together with the wedding actually being central to the plot after all, was just great.

Yeah it was fantastic - at first I thought they were just dropping in snippets of cases to give the wedding episode some semblance of a normal Sherlock episode - rather than it just being about the wedding for 90 minutes - but then when all the loose threads got tied up at the end - it was brilliant. Really great writing.

I'm assuming that to write something like that - you start with "someone gets murdered at the wedding but there's no murderer " and extrapolate backwards from there - creating plot threads that you can flesh out.

I can't imagine writing something like that forwards...

Good news. Hopefully the wait will be less than two years this time! At least Freeman doesn't have any more Hobbit to film.

Currently downloading from iPlayer but people have already been orgasming all over twitter because they can't control themselves.

But I managed to steer clear of major plot points save for a surprise at the end.

MY GOD THAT WAS GOOD!

SPOILERS BENEATH:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So that's why they never revealed the full story of the fall from the roof in a satisfactory way! How the holy hell are they going to explain that plot twist!? We saw him literally shoot himself in the mouth, thats usually pretty fatal right!?
Fave bits:
- Sherlock thinking through the best course of action when he has just been shot and trying to control his body
- When Sherlock took the simple solution of just shooting him when he realised the bearded guy (whose name I have already forgotten) was the single-point failure of his whole empire, nobody could possibly take it over from him!

Meh. I liked the previous 2 episodes much more. Still good, but disappointing final episode. And the whole vaults thing I found to be rather predictable. Don't like it when I can guess things happening on a Sherlock episode.

SPOLIERS


Moriarty could have fired blanks and had a blood pack on the back of his head. Easily done. i didn't think Magnussen was that great as a villain. Too irritating and not scary enough.

And as soon as it was revealed that the vaults were all in his head - the only logical next step was to shoot him, surely ?

I just assumed Mycroft would do it.

Mycroft didn't know that fact.

Magnusson had presumably never revealed it to anyone, but revealed it to Sherlock and Watson imagining that they would never just murder him. Indeed, I think that usually Sherlock would not have done that, and he only did it because of the vow he made in the previous episode to always look after John and Mary. Hence the title of the episode, "His Last Vow". Actually rather brilliant, in my opinion!

I also thought Magnusson was properly creepy! So cold and brutal.

AFAIK even firing a blank in to your cranium would kill you.

All's i'm saying is - If Moriarty is not dead after all then there's plenty of ways to get around it with fake guns etc...

Also i like how the theme music was about to start and then it suddenly cut back to 2 more minutes of episode :P

I think Series 3 was all about character building and series 4 will get back to being like the first two 2 series with the possible return of Moriarty.

It's definitely possible. I thought that when the Reichenbach Fall first aired. We seem him fire and fall and some red liquid come out the back of his head, but that's not proof.

When they had all that "did you miss me" stuff at the end of His Last Vow, I did think that maybe Sherlock himself set all that up, as a way to keep himself out of prison/exile in the event of him having to do something like kill Magnusson. But then, at the very END of the credits, we see a actual clip of Moriarty saying it, rather than the cartoon versions before the credits. So I dunno, he could well be alive.
