The Silliest Sherlock Of Them All

If you missed tonight's episode of the BBC-PBS series Sherlock, "The Sign of Three," in Houston this week you have four more chances:
Monday, January 27, 09:00 am on SD8.2

  • Monday 1/27 9:00am channel 8.2,
  • Monday 1/27 9:00pm channel 8.2,
  • Thursday 1/30 10:00pm channel 8.1,
  • Friday 1/31 2:30am channel 8.1

(Episode approx. 1½ hours long; better record 2 hours.)

I kid you not: writers and cast (not least, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman) clearly have a ball rendering this indisputably most ridiculous Holmes story ever written or acted. Dr. Watson's and Mary Morstan's wedding feast, at which Holmes is called upon to give the best man's speech, is transformed into a murder mystery, which Sherlock, through a seemingly endless series of flashbacks, eventually solves. Well worth your time. Take it as entertainment, not hardcore serious sherlockiana. Great fun!

Mary Morstan, Dr. John Watson, Sherlock Holmes
