    A great review for a great finale! I was worried after the disappointment of 2010’s The Blind Banker. But this was great! However, I was slightly upset that Moriarty died as this means that he won’t be back, but his death was shocking and unexpected. And Sherlock’s “suicide” was genuinely heartbreaking.

      Well maybe Moriarty isn’t dead either? Though I have to agree with one of the other posters here, that it’s probably best if he did stay dead, as it would be impossible to have a better battle between him and Sherlock than this finale offered.

    An excellent review to a very solid series! This show has definitely surpassed its first series in the quality, the sense of mystery and the intense, thrilling plots. A lot of thanks goes to Moffat and co. who made this series a fantastic ride! Its the best detective drama I’ve seen in along time, and the immense effort put into this was evident from the start.

    Love this final episode, loved this series, what more can I say?! Brilliant stuff, and the best thing is, a 3rd series has been confirmed! Sherlock will just get better and better in my honest opinion, and this series definitely demonstrated a great step up from it previous series.

    I am left dying for more! And I’m slightly left puzzled by the ending. I’ve come up with my round of theories and ideas, but I’m still baffled as to the hell it was all orchestrated *mind explodes*?! But still, the more I try and think about it, the more interesting yet complex it becomes. God, if only I was a fly on the wall when the scene happened lol.

    5/5 for both this series and this episode. Truly splendid, the best thing BBC has to offer right now, as well as Doctor Who :)

        Uh, with exactly what may I ask? Or are you just simply trolling me for a laugh?! Because I won’t tolerate trolling from anyone, so beware.

        And if you actually have any reason as to why you ‘disagree’, then please speak up or simply be cast as a troll.

          I am certainly no troll. Although i do live under a bridge but thats just because i cant stand the sky! :P lolgasm! I disagree with the fact that i would rate it 6/5!!!! Or maybe 7!! I like you pdurston!

            Right ok. Let’s leave it at that then.

    Detailed review. I wonder how many drafts has Steve Thompson done for this episode? Did Gatiss or Moffat supervise him during the writing process? I dunno…. Maybe Steve Thompson is a fairly competent writer and of the same level at Gatiss and Moffat in which case I would love for him to write another episode of Sherlock in Series 3, all the subsequent series’ and Doctor Who.
    Steve Thompson has been redeemed for The Blind Banker and The Curse of The Black Spot, I hope he can maintain this level of writing.
