The Abominable Bride eh…!
So Sherlock and Dr Watson are in both the Victorian era and modern era.
For me it was great to see the boys in their natural setting of Victorian London…it was beautifully shot, the story line had warmth and humour along with referencing some classic story’s like ‘The Five Orange Pips’ or ‘The Final Problem’ that sees Sherlock Holmes and Professor Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls fighting for their lives.
Holmes is of course in his ‘Mind Palace’ trying to figure out how Moriarty is both dead and yet seemingly alive. It made perfect sense to me and I thoroughly enjoyed it but some of the comments I have seen seem defy belief…for instance:
‘Why was Sherlock time travelling?’
‘It was rubbish…I didn’t understand it’
‘It was self indulgent rubbish’
and many more. Clearly this was a little taxing for people who didn’t really know Sherlock through his TV series or through any of Conan-Doyle’s written works which I found kind of disappointing.
Sherlock is about Sherlock, all the episodes have subtext, admittedly this one more than most but maybe people could pick up a book and read about the character, learn a few things…maybe start to tax our brains a little.
