If they wanted us to hear the words why is the music so loud I cannot hear what the voice-over is saying!!!  This sort of thing makes me very cross. 

Where were you watching it? Watching the trailer on youtube, the sounds are normal for me..

I was sure for some reason that it would be starting last christmas, don't know if it was actually meant to or if someone just told me that. Can't wait for the new series anyhow :3

The christmas game is afoot. For those of you not aware, the upcoming christmas special involves the characters being in the 19th century again.

 The New Years day special was quite good, if a tad confusing in the last fifteen minutes. But my God I've never seen a tale with so much pure, concentrated snarkiness in all my days. With so much sarcasm it could almost pass as a comedy. Enjoyed every minute.

The timey whimmey whovian nonsense ruined it for me.
And the whole waterfall scene was so badly done.

I was mildly disappointed with the whole thing.  Couldn't they have just left it as a purely Victorian one off?

I loved it. But I guessed in the first 5 minutes. Very Meta. Enjoyed it more than the whole of the latest series of Doctor Who.

I did not think it was as much fun as some of the other episodes.

I do tend to agree with those sentiments. The production and the Victorian atmosphere was
fine, but why mess it up with the "modern" Sherlock.

Another thing that irks me is the over reliance on the use of Moriarty, a character that Conan Doyle only used to "kill off" Holmes so that he could find time for his historical novels.

I know that this thread has a spoiler warning but the following post is all spoiler, so I have hidden it just in case.

I'm sure the woman were supposed to be a branch of the Suffragettes,
However in the un politically correct 19 century, the maid would have been expelled from the house hole immediately for that attitude.

The only plus to it all was that it was filmed locally.
(the river scene from Wolf hall was filmed in my town)

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen.
I spent yesterday tweaking my steampunk apparel and accoutrements into another level of steaminess- the right coloured varnish, a small hammer, dubbin, a size 1 crochet hook, gold paint and bloodymindedness go a long way to transforming decentish elements (belts and holders and so on) into steampunk splendour, indeed they do.

To accompany my endeavours I had on the entire season three of Sherlock, including the infamous Christmas finale. I found the humour of this season's episodes to be just right for my mood.

All in all, I quite enjoyed the third season and am looking forward to 2017's season 4.

I remain yours,
