After the twisty, time-travelling more than last year’s Special, this series opener spends a great chunk of your energy re-establishing the status quo.

1

00:00:02,000 --> 00:00:03,280

My brother is a murderer.

2

00:00:03,280 --> 00:00:05,760

No chance for you to be a hero this time, Mr Holmes.

3

00:00:05,760 --> 00:00:07,160

Oh, do your research.

4

00:00:07,160 --> 00:00:11,560

I'm not a hero - I'm a high-functioning sociopath.

5

00:00:11,560 --> 00:00:13,640

Merry Christmas!

6

00:00:13,640 --> 00:00:15,040

GUNSHOT

7

00:00:15,040 --> 00:00:18,120

I'm not given to outbursts of brotherly compassion.

8

00:00:18,120 --> 00:00:20,280

You know what happened to the other one.

9

00:00:25,000 --> 00:00:26,320

Miss me?

10

00:00:26,320 --> 00:00:28,720

'Did you miss me? Did you miss me? Did you miss me?'

11

00:00:28,720 --> 00:00:30,560

I've only been gone four minutes.

12

00:00:30,560 --> 00:00:32,680

Well, I certainly hope you've learnt your lesson.

13

00:00:35,760 --> 00:00:37,160

What you're about to see is

14

00:00:37,160 --> 00:00:39,440

classified beyond top secret.

15

00:00:39,440 --> 00:00:44,040

Is that quite clear? Don't minute any of this.

16

00:00:44,040 --> 00:00:47,000

Once beyond these walls, you must never speak of it.

17

00:00:48,000 --> 00:00:50,760

A D notice has been slapped on the entire incident.

18

00:00:50,760 --> 00:00:52,560

Only those within this room,

19

00:00:52,560 --> 00:00:56,400

code names Antarctica, Langdale, Porlock and Love,

20

00:00:56,400 --> 00:00:58,800

will ever know the whole truth.

21

00:00:58,800 --> 00:01:00,680

As far as everyone else is concerned,

22

00:01:00,680 --> 00:01:02,400

going to the Prime Minister

23

00:01:02,400 --> 00:01:04,960

- and way beyond, Charles Augustus... 

- PHONE KEYBOARD CLICKS

24

00:01:04,960 --> 00:01:07,120

- Are you tweeting?! 

- No. MESSAGE SEND TONE

25

00:01:07,120 --> 00:01:09,480

- Well, that's what it looks like! 

- Of course I'm not tweeting.

26

00:01:09,480 --> 00:01:11,320

- Why would I be tweeting? 

- Give me that! 

- What? No!

27

00:01:11,320 --> 00:01:13,720

- What are you doing?! Get off! 

- Give it here!

28

00:01:15,160 --> 00:01:17,400

- "Back on terra firma." 

- Don't read them out.

29

00:01:17,400 --> 00:01:19,680

- "Free as a bird." 

- God, you're such a spoilsport.

30

00:01:19,680 --> 00:01:21,920

- Will you take this matter seriously, Sherlock? 

- I am!

31

00:01:21,920 --> 00:01:23,960

What makes you think I'm not taking it seriously?

32

00:01:23,960 --> 00:01:26,120

"#OhWhatABeautifulMorning"

33

00:01:26,120 --> 00:01:28,760

Look, not so long ago I was on a mission that meant certain death -

34

00:01:28,760 --> 00:01:29,880

my death!

35

00:01:29,880 --> 00:01:32,560

And now I'm back, in a nice warm office, with my big brother and...

36

00:01:32,560 --> 00:01:33,880

Are those ginger nuts?

37

00:01:33,880 --> 00:01:35,880

- Oh, God... 

- LOVE ginger nuts.

38

00:01:35,880 --> 00:01:37,760

Our doctor said you were clean.

39

00:01:37,760 --> 00:01:39,480

I am. Utterly.

40

00:01:39,480 --> 00:01:42,680

No need for stimulants now, remember? I have work to do.

41

00:01:42,680 --> 00:01:44,080

You're high as a kite!

42

00:01:44,080 --> 00:01:46,800

Natural high, I assure you. Totally natural.

43

00:01:46,800 --> 00:01:49,440

I'm just... # ..glad to be alive! #

44

00:01:49,440 --> 00:01:52,000

What shall we do next? What's your name?

45

00:01:52,000 --> 00:01:53,240

Vivian.

46

00:01:53,240 --> 00:01:55,680

- What would you do, Vivian? 

- Pardon?

47

00:01:55,680 --> 00:01:58,400

Well, it's a lovely day. Go for a stroll?

48

00:01:58,400 --> 00:02:01,240

Make a paper aeroplane? Have an ice lolly?

49

00:02:01,240 --> 00:02:02,760

Ice lolly, I suppose.

50

00:02:02,760 --> 00:02:04,600

Ice lolly it is!

51

00:02:04,600 --> 00:02:07,240

- What's your favourite? 

- Well, really, I shouldn't...

52

00:02:07,240 --> 00:02:10,360

- Go on. 

- Do they still do Mivvies?

53

00:02:10,360 --> 00:02:12,240

- Mr Holmes... 

- Yes?

54

00:02:13,600 --> 00:02:16,880

- ..we do need to get on. 

- Yes, of course.

55

00:02:16,880 --> 00:02:18,960

HELICOPTER WHIRS

56

00:02:20,600 --> 00:02:22,080

'Do your research.

57

00:02:22,080 --> 00:02:25,640

'I'm not a hero - I'm a high-functioning sociopath.

58

00:02:25,640 --> 00:02:26,960

GUNSHOT

59

00:02:26,960 --> 00:02:28,960

'..sociopath. GUNSHOT

60

00:02:28,960 --> 00:02:31,520

'..sociopath.' GUNSHOT

61

00:02:31,520 --> 00:02:34,000

I see. Who is supposed to have shot him, then?

62

00:02:34,000 --> 00:02:37,640

Some over-eager squaddie with an itchy trigger finger - that's who.

63

00:02:37,640 --> 00:02:41,040

- That's not what happened at all. 

- It is now.

64

00:02:41,040 --> 00:02:43,320

Remarkable. How did you do it?

65

00:02:43,320 --> 00:02:46,360

We have some very talented people working here.

66

00:02:46,360 --> 00:02:49,280

If James Moriarty can hack every TV screen in the land,

67

00:02:49,280 --> 00:02:53,200

rest assured we have the tech to doctor a bit of security footage.

68

00:02:54,560 --> 00:02:56,920

That is now the official version,

69

00:02:56,920 --> 00:02:59,520

the version anyone we want to will see.

70

00:02:59,520 --> 00:03:01,280

No need to go to the trouble of getting

71

00:03:01,280 --> 00:03:03,320

some sort of official pardon.

72

00:03:03,320 --> 00:03:06,240

You're off the hook, Mr Holmes.

73

00:03:06,240 --> 00:03:08,080

You're home and dry.

74

00:03:08,080 --> 00:03:09,280

OK, cheers.

75

00:03:09,280 --> 00:03:11,840

Obviously, there's unfinished business.

76

00:03:11,840 --> 00:03:13,080

Moriarty.

77

00:03:13,080 --> 00:03:14,880

I told you - Moriarty's dead.

78

00:03:14,880 --> 00:03:17,880

You say he filmed that video message before he died.

79

00:03:17,880 --> 00:03:19,280

Yes.

80

00:03:19,280 --> 00:03:23,160

You also say you know what he's going to do next.

81

00:03:23,160 --> 00:03:26,200

- What does that mean? 

- Perhaps that's all there is to it.

82

00:03:26,200 --> 00:03:28,040

Perhaps he was just trying to frighten you.

83

00:03:28,040 --> 00:03:30,520

No, no, he would never be that disappointing.

84

00:03:31,880 --> 00:03:33,800

He's planned something, something long-term.

85

00:03:33,800 --> 00:03:35,920

Something that would take effect if he never made it

86

00:03:35,920 --> 00:03:37,720

off that rooftop alive.

87

00:03:37,720 --> 00:03:39,160

Posthumous revenge.

88

00:03:39,160 --> 00:03:42,520

No, better than that - posthumous game.

89

00:03:42,520 --> 00:03:44,360

We brought you back to deal with this.

90

00:03:44,360 --> 00:03:46,800

- What are you going to do? 

- Wait.

91

00:03:46,800 --> 00:03:48,240

Wait?!

92

00:03:48,240 --> 00:03:51,120

Of course wait. I'm the target - targets wait.

93

00:03:51,120 --> 00:03:54,600

Look, whatever's coming, whatever he's lined up,

94

00:03:54,600 --> 00:03:55,920

I'll know when it begins.

95

00:03:55,920 --> 00:03:58,520

I always know when the game is on. Do you know why?

96

00:03:58,520 --> 00:04:00,080

Why?

97

00:04:00,080 --> 00:04:01,400

Because I love it.

98

00:04:35,520 --> 00:04:38,800

There was once a merchant, in the famous market at Baghdad.

99

00:04:38,800 --> 00:04:41,200

WATER SLOSHES One day he saw a stranger

100

00:04:41,200 --> 00:04:43,480

looking at him in surprise,

101

00:04:43,480 --> 00:04:47,760

and he knew that the stranger was Death.

102

00:04:47,760 --> 00:04:50,720

Pale and trembling, the merchant fled the marketplace

103

00:04:50,720 --> 00:04:55,080

and made his way many, many miles, to the city of Samarra.

104

00:04:56,360 --> 00:05:00,240

For there he was sure Death could not find him.

105

00:05:00,240 --> 00:05:02,200

But when, at last, he came to Samarra,

106

00:05:02,200 --> 00:05:06,680

the merchant saw, waiting for him, the grim figure of Death.

107

00:05:09,720 --> 00:05:14,000

"Very well," said the merchant. "I give in. I am yours."

108

00:05:17,200 --> 00:05:19,240

"But tell me, why did you look surprised

109

00:05:19,240 --> 00:05:21,480

"when you saw me this morning in Baghdad?"

110

00:05:23,560 --> 00:05:26,400

"Because," said Death,

111

00:05:26,400 --> 00:05:28,920

"I had an appointment with you tonight...

112

00:05:30,320 --> 00:05:31,560

"..in Samarra."

113

00:05:41,400 --> 00:05:43,800

If this gets any better, I'm going to get two knives.

114

00:05:43,800 --> 00:05:44,920

Pays to advertise.

115

00:05:44,920 --> 00:05:47,120

- So, what about Moriarty, then? 

- Oh, I have a plan.

116

00:05:47,120 --> 00:05:49,000

I'm going to monitor the underworld,

117

00:05:49,000 --> 00:05:52,880

every quiver of the web will tell me when the spider makes his move.

118

00:05:52,880 --> 00:05:54,920

So, basically, your plan is just to sit there

119

00:05:54,920 --> 00:05:57,080

solving crimes like you always do?

120

00:05:57,080 --> 00:05:58,400

Awesome, isn't it?

121

00:05:59,920 --> 00:06:03,080

He drowned, Mr Holmes. That's what we thought.

122

00:06:03,080 --> 00:06:06,160

- But when they opened up his lungs... 

- Yes? 

- ..sand.

123

00:06:06,160 --> 00:06:07,760

Superficial. PHONE WHISTLES

124

00:06:10,320 --> 00:06:12,320

Come back! It's the wrong thumb.

125

00:06:12,320 --> 00:06:14,120

DOOR SLAMS

126

00:06:18,560 --> 00:06:20,360

- Sherlock... 

- It's never twins.

127

00:06:22,320 --> 00:06:24,680

Hopkins, arrest Wilson. Dimmock, look in the lymph nodes.

128

00:06:24,680 --> 00:06:26,400

- 'Wilson?' 

- 'Lymph nodes?' 

- Sherlock...

129

00:06:26,400 --> 00:06:28,760

Yes, you may have nothing but a limbless torso, but there'll

130

00:06:28,760 --> 00:06:30,920

be traces of ink in the lymph nodes under the armpits.

131

00:06:30,920 --> 00:06:33,280

If your mystery corpse had tattoos, the signs will be there.

132

00:06:33,280 --> 00:06:35,560

- 'Bloody hell! Is that a guess?' 

- I never guess.

133

00:06:35,560 --> 00:06:38,800

- Sherlock... 

- 'So, he's the killer? The canary trainer?'

134

00:06:38,800 --> 00:06:40,960

- Of course he's the killer. 

- 'Didn't see that coming.'

135

00:06:40,960 --> 00:06:42,280

Hm, naturally.

136

00:06:42,280 --> 00:06:45,320

Sherlock, you can't go on spinning plates like this.

137

00:06:45,320 --> 00:06:47,160

That's it! The place was spinning.

138

00:06:47,160 --> 00:06:50,960

The heart medication you're taking is known to cause bouts of amnesia.

139

00:06:50,960 --> 00:06:54,080

Yes, I...I think so. Why?

140

00:06:54,080 --> 00:06:56,880

Because the fingerprints on your brother's neck were your own.

141

00:06:56,880 --> 00:06:59,040

- WATSON CHUCKLES 

- A jellyfish? 

- I know.

142

00:06:59,040 --> 00:07:02,200

- You can't arrest a jellyfish. 

- You could try. 

- We did try.

143

00:07:02,200 --> 00:07:05,680

- PHONE REPEATEDLY VIBRATES 

- Oh...

144

00:07:05,680 --> 00:07:09,120

- Oh, God. 

- Mary? 

- 59 missed calls.

145

00:07:09,120 --> 00:07:10,480

We're in a lot of trouble.

146

00:07:10,480 --> 00:07:12,200

MARY SCREAMS

147

00:07:12,200 --> 00:07:15,760

Ow! Oh, my God! Oh, my God!

148

00:07:15,760 --> 00:07:17,160

Relax, it's got two syllables...

149

00:07:17,160 --> 00:07:19,360

I'm a nurse, darling - I think I know what to do!

150

00:07:19,360 --> 00:07:21,640

- Come on, then... 

- Re! 

- Lax!

151

00:07:21,640 --> 00:07:25,120

No, just drive, please, God, just drive! God, drive!

152

00:07:25,120 --> 00:07:27,360

- SHE SCREAMS 

- Sherlock - Mary!

153

00:07:27,360 --> 00:07:29,480

That's it, Mary - re... PHONE KEYBOARD CLICKS

154

00:07:29,480 --> 00:07:32,160

- Don't you start! 

- ..lax.

155

00:07:32,160 --> 00:07:36,480

John, John... I think you have to pull over!

156

00:07:36,480 --> 00:07:39,080

- Mary, Mary... 

- Pull over!

157

00:07:39,080 --> 00:07:42,240

Oh, my God! MARY SCREAMS

158

00:07:46,840 --> 00:07:48,560

Has that come out?

159

00:07:48,560 --> 00:07:51,200

- They never come out when I take them. 

- Let's have a look.

160

00:07:51,200 --> 00:07:53,760

Aw, she's so beautiful.

161

00:07:55,320 --> 00:07:57,280

- Have another go. 

- What about a name?

162

00:07:57,280 --> 00:07:59,120

- Catherine. 

- Uh, yeah, we've gone off that.

163

00:07:59,120 --> 00:08:00,720

- Have we? 

- Yeah. 

- Oh.

164

00:08:00,720 --> 00:08:03,280

- Well, you know what I think... BOTH: 

- It's not a girl's name.

165

00:08:03,280 --> 00:08:06,640

Molly, Mrs H, we would love you to be godparents.

166

00:08:06,640 --> 00:08:10,560

- Oh! 

- If you... 

- Really? 

- That's so lovely.

167

00:08:10,560 --> 00:08:14,600

And, uh...you too, Sherlock?

168

00:08:14,600 --> 00:08:17,400

- You too what? 

- Godfather, we'd like you to be godfather.

169

00:08:17,400 --> 00:08:19,600

God is a ludicrous fiction, dreamt up by inadequates

170

00:08:19,600 --> 00:08:22,560

who abnegate all responsibility to an invisible magic friend.

171

00:08:22,560 --> 00:08:24,480

Yeah, but there'll be cake. Will you do it?

172

00:08:24,480 --> 00:08:25,760

I'll get back to you.

173

00:08:25,760 --> 00:08:28,760

Father, we ask you to send your blessings on this water

174

00:08:28,760 --> 00:08:33,040

and sanctify it for our use this day.

175

00:08:33,040 --> 00:08:34,880

In Christ's name.

176

00:08:34,880 --> 00:08:37,800

Now, what name have you given your daughter?

177

00:08:37,800 --> 00:08:39,040

Rosamund Mary.

178

00:08:39,040 --> 00:08:40,200

Rosamund?

179

00:08:40,200 --> 00:08:42,840

It means "Rose of the world". Rosie for short.

180

00:08:44,320 --> 00:08:46,240

Didn't you get John's text?

181

00:08:46,240 --> 00:08:50,680

No. I delete his texts. I delete any text that begins "Hi."

182

00:08:50,680 --> 00:08:53,520

No idea why people think you're incapable of human emotion.

183

00:08:53,520 --> 00:08:55,080

- MRS HUDSON CLEARS THROAT 

- Sorry.

184

00:08:55,080 --> 00:08:56,760

- WHISPERING: 

- Phone!

185

00:08:56,760 --> 00:09:01,800

And now, godparents, are you ready to help the parents of this child

186

00:09:01,800 --> 00:09:04,240

in their duties as Christian parents?

187

00:09:04,240 --> 00:09:05,880

- BOTH: 

- We are.

188

00:09:05,880 --> 00:09:08,520

- SIRI: 

- 'Sorry, I didn't catch that.

189

00:09:08,520 --> 00:09:10,160

'Please repeat the question.'

190

00:09:11,640 --> 00:09:14,240

As ever, Watson, you see but do not observe.

191

00:09:14,240 --> 00:09:16,600

To you, the world remains an impenetrable mystery,

192

00:09:16,600 --> 00:09:17,960

whereas, to me, it is an open book.

193

00:09:17,960 --> 00:09:21,000

Hard logic versus romantic whimsy - that is your choice.

194

00:09:21,000 --> 00:09:23,920

You fail to connect actions to their consequences.

195

00:09:23,920 --> 00:09:27,120

Now, for the last time, if you want to keep the rattle,

196

00:09:27,120 --> 00:09:29,000

do not throw the rattle.

197

00:09:38,120 --> 00:09:40,240

MESSAGE TONE

198

00:10:32,520 --> 00:10:35,680

All right, good girl, good girl. Good girl.

199

00:10:37,200 --> 00:10:39,160

I'd better finish this, hadn't I?

200

00:10:47,960 --> 00:10:50,840

- Hey. 

- Afternoon. He says you've got a good one, Greg?

201

00:10:50,840 --> 00:10:53,240

Oh, yeah.

202

00:10:53,240 --> 00:10:56,080

It was David Welsborough's 50th birthday.

203

00:10:56,080 --> 00:10:58,920

CHEERS AND APPLAUSE

204

00:10:59,960 --> 00:11:01,840

God, 50!

205

00:11:01,840 --> 00:11:02,960

Where does it go?

206

00:11:02,960 --> 00:11:05,120

I know for a fact I was only 21 this time last week.

207

00:11:05,120 --> 00:11:07,960

Yeah, well that's impossible. That was before you met me.

208

00:11:07,960 --> 00:11:11,520

- Well, no, no, there never was... 

- "There never was such a time."

209

00:11:12,680 --> 00:11:15,320

She's looking at me disapprovingly again.

210

00:11:15,320 --> 00:11:17,400

No. She's just jealous.

211

00:11:17,400 --> 00:11:19,560

Yeah, well, I think we both are.

212

00:11:19,560 --> 00:11:21,640

- PHONE VIBRATES 

- Oh... 

- No, no, David.

213

00:11:21,640 --> 00:11:23,520

- Come on, you promised. 

- No, it's...

214

00:11:24,760 --> 00:11:27,080

Oh, no... Oh, it's a Skype call.

215

00:11:27,080 --> 00:11:31,080

Oh! Then it must be Charlie. At least he's phoning, I suppose.

216

00:11:32,280 --> 00:11:33,840

Oh, look! Hello!

217

00:11:33,840 --> 00:11:36,520

'Hey, Dad. Happy birthday.

218

00:11:36,520 --> 00:11:40,440

'Sorry to miss the party, but travel broadens the mind, right?'

219

00:11:42,200 --> 00:11:44,520

No! Picture's frozen!

220

00:11:44,520 --> 00:11:46,600

'Yeah, signal's rubbish. But I can still hear you.'

221

00:11:46,600 --> 00:11:48,280

Why is it rubbish? Where are you?

222

00:11:48,280 --> 00:11:50,480

- How is he? Is he eating? Ask him if he's eating. 

- No...

223

00:11:50,480 --> 00:11:52,320

- MAN: 

- David? Come on!

224

00:11:52,320 --> 00:11:55,360

OK, no, hang on a sec, I'll find somewhere quieter.

225

00:11:55,360 --> 00:11:57,320

So, Charlie, where are you?

226

00:11:57,320 --> 00:11:59,040

Are you there?

227

00:11:59,040 --> 00:12:02,000

- 'Sorry, I'm here. I'm just a bit...' 

- Are you all right?

228

00:12:02,000 --> 00:12:05,720

- 'It's nothing. Probably just the altitude.' 

- Altitude?

229

00:12:05,720 --> 00:12:08,720

- 'I'm in Tibet. Didn't you see the mountains?' 

- Never mind mountains.

230

00:12:08,720 --> 00:12:10,960

Your mother wants to know if you're eating properly.

231

00:12:10,960 --> 00:12:12,880

- 'Listen, Dad, could you do me a favour?' 

- What?

232

00:12:12,880 --> 00:12:15,480

- 'Could you just check something on my car?' 

- Your car?

233

00:12:15,480 --> 00:12:17,640

'To settle a bet. The guys here don't believe

234

00:12:17,640 --> 00:12:19,400

'I've got a Power Ranger stuck to the bonnet.

235

00:12:19,400 --> 00:12:22,240

- 'Could you take a photo and send it?' 

- Uh, yes, I can do that.

236

00:12:26,040 --> 00:12:27,920

All done. Have you got it?

237

00:12:27,920 --> 00:12:29,080

Charlie?

238

00:12:31,120 --> 00:12:33,200

- LESTRADE: 

- A week later...

239

00:12:33,200 --> 00:12:34,520

Yeah?

240

00:12:34,520 --> 00:12:37,440

..something really weird happens.

241

00:12:37,440 --> 00:12:40,320

Drunk driver, he's totally smashed, the cops are chasing him,

242

00:12:40,320 --> 00:12:42,600

and he turns into the drive of the Welsborough house

243

00:12:42,600 --> 00:12:44,120

to try and get away.

244

00:12:44,120 --> 00:12:45,760

Unfortunately...

245

00:12:58,040 --> 00:13:00,440

The drunk guy survived, they managed to pull him out,

246

00:13:00,440 --> 00:13:03,600

but when they put the fire out and examined the parked car...

247

00:13:05,080 --> 00:13:06,480

Whose body?

248

00:13:06,480 --> 00:13:08,600

Charlie Welsborough, the son.

249

00:13:08,600 --> 00:13:11,720

- What? 

- The son who was in Tibet. DNA all checks out.

250

00:13:11,720 --> 00:13:13,600

Night of the party, the car's empty,

251

00:13:13,600 --> 00:13:15,680

and a week later...

252

00:13:15,680 --> 00:13:17,240

the dead boy's found at the wheel.

253

00:13:17,240 --> 00:13:19,000

SHERLOCK CHUCKLES

254

00:13:19,000 --> 00:13:21,800

- Yeah, I thought it'd tickle you. 

- Have you got a lab report?

255

00:13:21,800 --> 00:13:24,600

Yeah, Charlie Welsborough's the son of a Cabinet Minister,

256

00:13:24,600 --> 00:13:26,640

so I'm under a lot of pressure to get a result.

257

00:13:26,640 --> 00:13:29,000

Who cares about that? Tell me about the seats.

258

00:13:29,000 --> 00:13:31,080

- The seats? 

- Yes, the car seats.

259

00:13:34,680 --> 00:13:36,120

Made of vinyl.

260

00:13:36,120 --> 00:13:38,520

Two different types of vinyl present.

261

00:13:38,520 --> 00:13:40,120

Was it his own car?

262

00:13:40,120 --> 00:13:42,080

Yeah, not flash - he was a student.

263

00:13:42,080 --> 00:13:43,640

- Well, that's suggestive. 

- Why?

264

00:13:43,640 --> 00:13:46,440

- Vinyl's cheaper than leather. 

- Yeah, right?

265

00:13:46,440 --> 00:13:47,920

- There's something else. 

- Yes?

266

00:13:47,920 --> 00:13:49,000

According to this,

267

00:13:49,000 --> 00:13:51,560

Charlie Welsborough had already been dead for a week.

268

00:13:52,960 --> 00:13:54,520

What?

269

00:13:54,520 --> 00:13:56,840

The body in the car, dead for a week.

270

00:13:56,840 --> 00:13:59,120

Oh, this is a good one. Is it my birthday?

271

00:13:59,120 --> 00:14:00,680

You want help?

272

00:14:00,680 --> 00:14:02,880

- Yes, please. 

- One condition. 

- OK.

273

00:14:02,880 --> 00:14:05,880

Take all the credit. It gets boring if I just solve them all.

274

00:14:05,880 --> 00:14:07,040

Yeah, you say that,

275

00:14:07,040 --> 00:14:09,480

but then John blogs about it, and you get all the credit anyway.

276

00:14:09,480 --> 00:14:10,640

He's got a point.

277

00:14:10,640 --> 00:14:12,840

Which makes me look like some kind of prima donna

278

00:14:12,840 --> 00:14:15,120

who insists on getting credit for something he didn't do!

279

00:14:15,120 --> 00:14:17,000

Well, I think you've hit a sore spot, Sherlock.

280

00:14:17,000 --> 00:14:20,080

- Like I'm some kind of credit junkie. 

- Definitely a sore spot.

281

00:14:20,080 --> 00:14:23,880

- So you take all the glory, thanks... 

- OK! 

- ..thanks all the same.

282

00:14:23,880 --> 00:14:26,600

Look, just solve the bloody thing, will you? It's driving me nuts.

283

00:14:26,600 --> 00:14:28,280

Anything you say, Giles.

284

00:14:30,400 --> 00:14:31,960

Just kidding.

285

00:14:31,960 --> 00:14:33,360

HE MOUTHS: What's his name?

286

00:14:33,360 --> 00:14:34,760

- HE MOUTHS: 

- Greg. 

- What?

287

00:14:34,760 --> 00:14:37,000

Greg.

288

00:14:37,000 --> 00:14:39,000

It's obvious though, isn't it, what happened?

289

00:14:39,000 --> 00:14:40,720

John, you amaze me. You know what happened?

290

00:14:40,720 --> 00:14:42,960

Not a clue. It's just you normally say that at this point.

291

00:14:42,960 --> 00:14:47,560

Hmm. Well, then, let's hope you solve your little problem, Greg.

292

00:14:48,560 --> 00:14:49,720

- Hear that? 

- I know.

293

00:14:51,000 --> 00:14:54,560

- So, how's it going then, fatherhood? 

- Oh, good, great. Yeah, amazing.

294

00:14:54,560 --> 00:14:56,280

- Getting any sleep? 

- Christ, no.

295

00:14:56,280 --> 00:14:59,000

You're at the beck and call of a screaming, demanding baby,

296

00:14:59,000 --> 00:15:01,760

woken up at all hours to obey its every whim.

297

00:15:01,760 --> 00:15:04,360

- Must feel very different... 

- Sorry, what?

298

00:15:04,360 --> 00:15:05,840

Yes, well, you know how it is.

299

00:15:05,840 --> 00:15:08,040

All you do is clean up their mess, pat them on the head.

300

00:15:08,040 --> 00:15:10,840

- Are you two having a little joke? 

- Never a word of thanks.

301

00:15:10,840 --> 00:15:13,360

Can't even tell people's faces apart.

302

00:15:13,360 --> 00:15:14,600

This is a joke, isn't it?

303

00:15:14,600 --> 00:15:17,240

Yeah, and it's all, "Oh, aren't you clever. You're so, so clever."

304

00:15:17,240 --> 00:15:19,160

- Is it about me? 

- I think he needs winding.

305

00:15:19,160 --> 00:15:22,560

- You know, I think that really might be it. 

- No, don't get it.

306

00:15:22,560 --> 00:15:25,280

Charlie's family are pretty cut up about it, as you'd expect,

307

00:15:25,280 --> 00:15:27,120

- so go easy on them, yeah? 

- PHONE VIBRATES

308

00:15:27,120 --> 00:15:29,560

- You know me. MARY: 

- 'Hey, hello.' 

- Yeah. 

- Got them, don't worry.

309

00:15:29,560 --> 00:15:31,480

Pampers, the cream you can't get from Boots.

310

00:15:31,480 --> 00:15:33,400

Yeah, never mind about that. Where are you now?

311

00:15:33,400 --> 00:15:34,960

- At the dead boy's house? 

- Yeah.

312

00:15:34,960 --> 00:15:37,200

'And what does he think? Any theories?'

313

00:15:37,200 --> 00:15:38,800

Well, I texted you the details.

314

00:15:38,800 --> 00:15:41,120

Yeah, two different types of vinyl.

315

00:15:41,120 --> 00:15:42,520

- Hey! 

- How do you know about that?

316

00:15:42,520 --> 00:15:45,280

'Oh you'd be amazed at what a receptionist picks up.'

317

00:15:45,280 --> 00:15:48,080

- WHISPERING: 

- They know everything! 

- 'Solved it, then?'

318

00:15:48,080 --> 00:15:50,680

- I'm working on it. 

- 'Oh, Mary, motherhood's slowing you down.'

319

00:15:50,680 --> 00:15:52,560

- Pig! 

- Keep trying.

320

00:15:52,560 --> 00:15:54,200

'So, what about it, then?

321

00:15:54,200 --> 00:15:56,840

'What, an empty car that suddenly has a week-old corpse in it?

322

00:15:56,840 --> 00:15:58,720

'And what are you going to call this one?'

323

00:15:58,720 --> 00:16:00,440

Oh, the Ghost Driver.

324

00:16:00,440 --> 00:16:02,360

- Don't give it a title. 

- People like the titles.

325

00:16:02,360 --> 00:16:04,520

- They hate the titles. 

- Give the people what they want.

326

00:16:04,520 --> 00:16:06,200

No, never do that - people are stupid.

327

00:16:06,200 --> 00:16:08,040

Uh, SOME people.

328

00:16:08,040 --> 00:16:09,760

'All people are stupid.

329

00:16:09,760 --> 00:16:11,040

'Most people.'

330

00:16:11,040 --> 00:16:12,840

'Bizarre enough though, isn't it, to be him?'

331

00:16:12,840 --> 00:16:14,560

I mean, it's right up your strasse.

332

00:16:16,920 --> 00:16:19,640

Mr and Mrs Welsborough, I really am most terribly sorry

333

00:16:19,640 --> 00:16:21,640

- to hear about your daughter. 

- Son. 

- Son!

334

00:16:21,640 --> 00:16:24,080

Mr and Mrs Welsborough, this is Mr Sherlock Holmes.

335

00:16:24,080 --> 00:16:26,680

Thank you very much for coming. We've heard a great deal about you.

336

00:16:26,680 --> 00:16:29,720

If anyone can throw any light into this darkness, surely it will be you.

337

00:16:29,720 --> 00:16:31,560

Well, I believe that I...

338

00:16:33,000 --> 00:16:34,240

..can.

339

00:16:35,400 --> 00:16:38,320

- DISTORTED: 

- But Charlie was our whole world, Mr Holmes. I...

340

00:16:47,040 --> 00:16:48,680

Sherlock?

341

00:16:48,680 --> 00:16:49,840

Mr Holmes?

342

00:16:49,840 --> 00:16:50,920

Sorry, you were saying?

343

00:16:50,920 --> 00:16:53,440

Well, Charlie was our whole world, Mr Holmes.

344

00:16:53,440 --> 00:16:55,640

I...I don't think we'll ever get over this.

345

00:16:55,640 --> 00:16:57,040

No. Shouldn't think so.

346

00:17:01,680 --> 00:17:04,360

So sorry, will you excuse me a moment? I just...

347

00:17:07,000 --> 00:17:09,120

I'll...I'll just, um... Ahem.

348

00:17:13,520 --> 00:17:16,120

- Now what's wrong? 

- Not sure, I just...

349

00:17:16,120 --> 00:17:18,720

By the pricking of my thumbs.

350

00:17:18,720 --> 00:17:19,960

Seriously? You?

351

00:17:19,960 --> 00:17:21,560

Intuitions are not to be ignored, John.

352

00:17:21,560 --> 00:17:23,280

They represent data processed too fast

353

00:17:23,280 --> 00:17:24,840

for the conscious mind to comprehend.

354

00:17:24,840 --> 00:17:26,360

What is this?

355

00:17:26,360 --> 00:17:30,080

Oh, it's a sort of shrine, I suppose, really.

356

00:17:30,080 --> 00:17:32,160

Bit of a fan of Mrs T.

357

00:17:32,160 --> 00:17:35,200

A big hero of mine when I was getting started.

358

00:17:35,200 --> 00:17:36,480

Right, yes.

359

00:17:40,880 --> 00:17:42,920

- Who? 

- What?

360

00:17:42,920 --> 00:17:44,640

- Who...? Who was this? 

- Are you serious?

361

00:17:44,640 --> 00:17:47,760

- Sherlock... 

- It's... It's Margaret Thatcher,

362

00:17:47,760 --> 00:17:50,240

the first female Prime Minister of this country.

363

00:17:50,240 --> 00:17:51,360

Right.

364

00:17:51,360 --> 00:17:54,680

- Prime Minister? 

- Hmm. Leader of the Government. 

- Right.

365

00:17:55,840 --> 00:17:59,480

- Female? 

- For God's sake! You know perfectly well who she is.

366

00:17:59,480 --> 00:18:01,000

Why are you playing for time?

367

00:18:01,000 --> 00:18:03,600

It's the gap, look at the gap. It's wrong.

368

00:18:03,600 --> 00:18:06,400

Everything else is perfectly ordered, managed.

369

00:18:07,640 --> 00:18:09,920

The whole thing's verging on OCD. My respects.

370

00:18:09,920 --> 00:18:11,920

This figurine is routinely repositioned after

371

00:18:11,920 --> 00:18:14,600

the cleaner's been in, this picture is straightened every day,

372

00:18:14,600 --> 00:18:15,680

yet this ugly gap remains.

373

00:18:15,680 --> 00:18:18,240

- Something's missing from here, but only recently. 

- Yes, a...

374

00:18:18,240 --> 00:18:21,160

- Plaster bust. 

- ..plaster bust. 

- Oh, for God's sake! It got broken.

375

00:18:21,160 --> 00:18:23,280

What the hell has this got to do with Charlie?

376

00:18:23,280 --> 00:18:25,680

- Rug! 

- What? 

- Well, how could it get broken?

377

00:18:25,680 --> 00:18:28,760

The only place for it to fall is the floor and there is a big thick rug.

378

00:18:28,760 --> 00:18:31,240

- Does it matter? 

- Mrs Welsborough, my apologies.

379

00:18:31,240 --> 00:18:33,920

- It is worth letting him do this. 

- Is your friend quite mad?

380

00:18:33,920 --> 00:18:35,840

No, he's an arsehole, but it's an easy mistake.

381

00:18:35,840 --> 00:18:39,120

Look, no, we had a break-in, some little bastard smashed it to bits.

382

00:18:39,120 --> 00:18:40,960

We found the remains out there in the porch.

383

00:18:40,960 --> 00:18:43,320

- The porch where we came in? 

- How anybody could hate her so much

384

00:18:43,320 --> 00:18:45,680

they'd go to the trouble of smashing her likeness...

385

00:18:45,680 --> 00:18:48,280

I'm no expert, but, uh, possibly her face.

386

00:18:48,280 --> 00:18:50,600

Why didn't he smash all the others? Perfect opportunity,

387

00:18:50,600 --> 00:18:52,200

and look at that one - she's smiling.

388

00:18:52,200 --> 00:18:54,040

Oh, Inspector, this is clearly a waste of time.

389

00:18:54,040 --> 00:18:57,080

- And if there's nothing... 

- I know what happened to your son.

390

00:18:57,080 --> 00:18:58,320

You do?

391

00:18:58,320 --> 00:19:00,440

It's quite simple, superficial, to be blunt.

392

00:19:00,440 --> 00:19:02,440

But first, tell me, the night of the break-in,

393

00:19:02,440 --> 00:19:03,800

this room was in darkness?

394

00:19:03,800 --> 00:19:06,040

- Well, yes. 

- And the porch where it was smashed,

395

00:19:06,040 --> 00:19:07,840

I noticed the motion sensor was damaged,

396

00:19:07,840 --> 00:19:10,200

- so I assume it's permanently lit. 

- How did you notice that?

397

00:19:10,200 --> 00:19:12,760

I lack the arrogance to ignore details - I'm not the police.

398

00:19:12,760 --> 00:19:15,160

- So you're saying he smashed it where he could see it. 

- Exactly.

399

00:19:15,160 --> 00:19:17,120

- Why? 

- Don't know. Wouldn't be fun if I knew.

400

00:19:17,120 --> 00:19:18,680

Mr Holmes, please!

401

00:19:20,800 --> 00:19:23,400

It was your 50th birthday, Mr Welsborough, of course you were

402

00:19:23,400 --> 00:19:26,120

disappointed that your son hadn't made it back from his gap year.

403

00:19:26,120 --> 00:19:27,840

- After all, he was in Tibet. 

- Yes.

404

00:19:27,840 --> 00:19:29,640

- No. 

- No?

405

00:19:29,640 --> 00:19:32,560

CROWD: # Happy birthday... #

406

00:19:32,560 --> 00:19:36,240

The first part of your conversation was, in fact, pre-recorded video.

407

00:19:36,240 --> 00:19:37,520

Easily arranged.

408

00:19:40,800 --> 00:19:42,960

It's a Skype call.

409

00:19:42,960 --> 00:19:44,960

The trick was meant to be a surprise.

410

00:19:44,960 --> 00:19:47,080

- A trick? 

- Obviously.

411

00:19:47,080 --> 00:19:49,200

Could you take a photo and send it?

412

00:19:49,200 --> 00:19:52,640

There were two types of vinyl in the burnt-out remains of the car.

413

00:19:52,640 --> 00:19:55,400

One, the actual passenger seat, the other, a good copy.

414

00:19:55,400 --> 00:19:56,560

Well, good enough.

415

00:19:58,400 --> 00:19:59,840

Effectively a costume.

416

00:20:02,600 --> 00:20:03,880

You're joking?

417

00:20:03,880 --> 00:20:06,120

No, I'm not.

418

00:20:06,120 --> 00:20:08,200

All he wanted was for you to get close enough to the car

419

00:20:08,200 --> 00:20:09,720

so he could spring the surprise.

420

00:20:13,360 --> 00:20:15,760

- Oh, my God! 

- Surprise!

421

00:20:17,960 --> 00:20:20,040

That's when it happened.

422

00:20:20,040 --> 00:20:21,280

I can't be certain, of course,

423

00:20:21,280 --> 00:20:24,080

but I think Charlie must have suffered some sort of a seizure.

424

00:20:24,080 --> 00:20:25,680

You said he'd felt unwell?

425

00:20:25,680 --> 00:20:26,720

You all right?

426

00:20:26,720 --> 00:20:29,440

'It's nothing. Probably just the altitude.'

427

00:20:29,440 --> 00:20:31,000

He died there and then.

428

00:20:35,520 --> 00:20:37,480

No-one had any cause to go near his car,

429

00:20:37,480 --> 00:20:40,560

so there he remained, in the driver's seat, hidden, until...

430

00:20:45,960 --> 00:20:48,480

When the two cars were examined,

431

00:20:48,480 --> 00:20:52,440

the fake seat had melted in the fire, revealing Charlie,

432

00:20:52,440 --> 00:20:55,680

who'd been sitting there, quite dead, for a week.

433

00:20:56,760 --> 00:20:58,280

Oh, God!

434

00:21:00,040 --> 00:21:01,160

Poor kid.

435

00:21:01,160 --> 00:21:04,080

Really, I'm so sorry. Mr Welsborough, Mrs Welsborough.

436

00:21:07,320 --> 00:21:09,280

This is where it was smashed.

437

00:21:09,280 --> 00:21:12,400

- That was amazing. 

- What? 

- The car, the kid.

438

00:21:12,400 --> 00:21:14,480

Ancient history. Why are you still talking about it?

439

00:21:14,480 --> 00:21:16,960

What's so important about a broken bust of Margaret Thatcher?

440

00:21:16,960 --> 00:21:19,560

I can't stand it, never can. There's a loose thread in the world.

441

00:21:19,560 --> 00:21:21,040

It doesn't mean you have to pull on it.

442

00:21:21,040 --> 00:21:22,360

What kind of a life would that be?

443

00:21:22,360 --> 00:21:24,920

Besides, I have the strangest feeling...

444

00:21:24,920 --> 00:21:26,080

Miss me?

445

00:21:27,120 --> 00:21:30,280

- That's mine. You two take a...bus. 

- Why?

446

00:21:30,280 --> 00:21:32,960

I need to concentrate, and I don't want to hit you.

447

00:21:32,960 --> 00:21:34,120

The Mall, please.

Review : Sherlock returns for season 4 on good form with an episode that balances its lightness and darkness

After the twisty, time-travelling more than last year’s Special, this series opener spends a great chunk of your energy re-establishing the status quo. For Sherlock meaning cases, clients, comedy, and Benedict Cumberbatch delivering his lines with all the speed and confidence of an Formula One champ.

Writer Mark Gatiss gets things moving for a brisk, even hyperactive, pace. One moody scene aside, The Six Thatchers piles gag together with gag along with gag. It’s a reminder with the items a fine comic cast this show has assembled. Yes, Freeman and Cumberbatch can perform action and heart-break, however these two never seem happier than when they’re landing punchlines, and Gatiss has provided an abundance of those.

It’s a hectic, entertaining start that may the show back in basics: Sherlock and Watson, quipping, finding clues and solving cases. If you bristled on the rug-pull cleverness of The Abominable Bride (some did, though I wasn't one of them) this can serve you well. It’s sprightly, moves along in a fair pace and it has surprises up for grabs.

The cause of all the laughs becomes clear at the end of the episode, the spot that the lightness is paid using a turn to your dark. Gatiss front-loads the fun to stabilize a more somber final third.

Before that arrives though, there’s another kind of fun to be enjoyed - the globe-trotting action-thriller kind. Channelling Christmas TV tradition, you will find stunts and locations which wouldn’t feel homeless in a Bond film. Hand-to-hand fights, Mexican stand-offs, racing motorbikes, bodies smashing through plate glass windows, underwater grapples… it’s thrilling stuff. 

The locations deserve particular praise, especially considering that The Six Thatchers can it all with no benefit of the Bond or Bourne budget. From luxury modern mansions to exotic overseas backdrops through an intriguing Gothic grotto, there’s real variety and also a sense of global scale here. The heart of Sherlock can still be 221B Baker Street, however its world extends far beyond that.

It’s not merely the action scenes that channel Bond. The presence of Mycroft brings British Intelligence into play, along with providing the always-winning combination from the Holmes brothers. Their chilly, competitive, relationship isn’t just beneficial to a laugh, it’s also an intriguing anyone to explore. 

The Six Thatchers could possibly be more interested in relationships than any previous episode. The pressures on new parents provide some laughs, while friendships are tested. By dint of the title character’s personality, Sherlock isn't touchy feely on the subject of emotions and this doesn’t change here, but you can find signs that Sherlock himself has been evolving. He’s still Sherlock—devilishly impatient, brilliant and arrogant—but he’s learned to try out with people’s expectations of him, and he’s also learned to ask about for help.

Visually, it’s never looked busier. The series one trick of texting appearing on-screen, which seemed this type of exciting embellishment back 2010, is the least than it. Sherlock’s thought processes still bleed into reality, now jostling for screen space alongside video, maps, Google searches, scientific symbols, and much more. The overall impression most likely are not one of elegance, nonetheless it certainly feels energetic. Director Rachel Talalay, fresh from working with all the BBC and Steven Moffat on Doctor Who, has seized the ability to play with all the episode’s look, characterizing one recurring theme with atmospheric, shimmering visuals.

That theme is because of predestination along with the (im)chance for avoiding one’s fate. Actions have consequences you will not be able to run from, The Six Thatchers informs us. That though, we’ll save to the post-broadcast, spoiler-filled discussion. 

What will it be Geoffrey Rush’s character keeps saying in Shakespeare In Love? What the public would like from entertainment is comedy, love along with a bit which has a dog? The Six Thatchers has that. And more.
