Any body else watch this great BBC series?
Very very clever, shame they only make 3 episodes a series.

    I think it's excellent.....Just finished watching it.
    I could watch a lot more as well.
    Very very clever.....but his speech at the wedding was very "cringy" LOL
    Looking forward to next Sunday night
    Love

    An entrancing episode and I'm pleased that they only make three per series - and I hope that this is the final series. It must end as all the great classics i.e. leaving the crowd wanting more rather than creaking on like Last of the Summer Wine, Only Fools and Horses and the like. I have requested the DVDs for my birthday (I have the first two series). DD

    I only started watching it last series so need to watch series one! But yes it's a fantastic show and very clever!! The speech was very cringe-ish Hileena!! I wanted someone to cut in at 1st but was clever how it twisted and turned into how it was a web to catch the killer!!

    Love the series. Disliked the episode. For me, the wedding speech didn't work at all. I felt the scriptwriters had had more fun than I did.

    If a certain Mr B Cumberbatch turned up on my doorstep, requesting my being his consort, then a polite yet firm refusal by this wondrous example of female beauty (yes, we are in the realms of fantasy) would ensue but, if a certain Mr M Freeman did the same? 8) DD

    You can both have 'em. They do nowt for me. I'll stick with cricketers and rugby players. Plus Mr SW, of course :wink:

    I'd settle for someone with own hair and teeth! Actually don't even mind if they don't have hair (as long as they don't wear a toupe!) :lol:

    If we're talking eye candy then Danny Dyer is for me! I can't watch EastEnders any more without drooling at the telly!

    I've only just started watching it, he doesn't do anything for me though.......now if Mr Dyer should come round I certainly wouldn't step over him

    Hi
    I enjoyed the first 2 episodes.......last night I thought was rubbish......maybe it was because I was sore and my brain couldn't cope with all the complications :lol:

    Love

    That is what I like about this series; the viewer has to make some effort too because the story is not laid out like a buffet. I thought last night's episode was intriguing, especially with its exploration of what the process of death could entail (well, that was my interpretation. As for the end - the unfocused stare of Andrew Scott is terrifying. Bring on series four with Moriarty says I! DD (who wants it to be January 2016 NOW)

    That was some episode wasn't it? I can't remember the last series being quite so...strange. Or maybe my brain was working better then? Is that when the next one is DD? Jan 2016?

    I agree, ouch. I think they've really pushed the boat out this series, exploring ideas and techniques and last night's was a cracker. There were times when I wanted to ask Mr SW to clarify things but I couldn't because, in doing so, I'd miss something equally vital. (Quite similar to watching T20 cricket :lol: ) I love the way they don't go for tired old cliches but explore the 'what ifs'.

    Last series was two years ago. One before that a year.
    It depends how busy they all are.
    It will be at least jan next year before the next one.. more the pity :(

    I really can't get my head around it at all, I just don't understand anything that goes on. My poor brain :(

    I love it too, but last night was a complete mystery to me. How many times has Sherlock almost died? What was that dream sequence all about?
    How come Moriarty made a comeback? Oh dear, so many questions and no answers, it's a mystery.(But good fun)

    Wow what a last episode!! Who would of thought Mary was an assassin! And Moriarty was alive! It was a jam packed episode of excitement!! I've just read we have to wait till Christmas 2014 for the new series, they are trying to get it done soon so it can be on Christmas Day 2014. Ahhhhhh gonna have to be patient. Does anyone watch Elementary on Living channel (Sky)?That's very good, Has Johnny Lee Miller and Lucy Lee in it.
