IMMEDIATE THOUGHTS ON THE NEW SHERLOCK
SPOILERS MAYBE OR SOMETHING
- •Isn't it nice to watch TV together?We may be in a golden age of telly, but real event TV, the kind that used to snare millions of people in a big unifying experience, so rarely happens anymore - Sherlock is always an exception, and I'm glad of it.
- •Molly Hooper as a Victorian ❤️I adore Molly, and she got the chance to have a bit more fun in this episode. I would have liked more scenes of her.
- •Freeman and Cumberbatch know how to shout really wellI get the feeling that proper actor-shouting is probably really hard, but these two are great at is. Andrew Scott too, for that matter. Some great shouts.
- •It was a bit sillyBut who cares.
- •THE WOMEN DID ITI know a lot gets levelled at Steven Moffatt for his depiction of women, having never seen his Dr Who episodes, I can't really comment. HOWEVER, I can see how 'the suffragettes did it' might stoke a few fires. Don't necessarily agree, quite liked the reveal, didn't quite get the pips thing.
- •WATERFALL!!!Very glad they got to film the proper Reichenbach Falls, and indeed, play up to all the existing Sherlocky things they maybe shied away from initially.
- •8/10All in all, thought it was great fun and did well to set up the rest of the series. Night all.
