    This is the first episode of this series I’ve seen – and whilst not an intellectually challenging hour, I thoroughly loved it.

    I think the cultural references throughout were the highlight. The more subtle things, like the fact that the musical was based on a book by Gaston Leroux, which many people will know is a reflection of The Phantom of the Opera – and there was a plethora of Phantom imagery in there. The boat, the hanging from the rafters, etc.

    And the very obvious Sherlock baiting was brilliant.

    Felt like this episode was a morbid soap opera.

    It wasn’t bad. But, wasn’t what I was expecting either (not in a good way).
