Sherlock: Season Three (2014/BBC Blu-ray)

Picture: A- Sound: A- Extras: A Episodes: A

After the showdown with Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) has been dead for two years, but now he is back. Between an international terrorist attack, various theories of how Sherlock survived the fall and John's wedding, Sherlock meets his match when they meet the mysterious Charles Augustus Magnussen who seems to holds the government and the world's secrets at ransom. Once again, the game is on...

Sherlock: Season Three has the legendary detective back from the grave (and John's not happy for keeping him in the dark for 2 years) after systematically tearing down Moriarty's underground network, Mycroft Holmes (his brother) brings Sherlock back to London to stop an interment terrorist attack. When John's gets married to Mary, Mary seems to have a few secrets and skeletons she's kept from John, but Holmes faces his toughest foe yet, Magnussen who holds all the worlds secrets, has governments in the palms of his hand and has a Mind Palace just like Holmes.

This is an incredible BBC TV series of a modern retelling of Sherlock Holmes, created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Sherlock is a pompous, know-it-all, show off, drama queen, high functioning sociopath and Watson is an ex-military doctor. All the characters were very tongue and cheek, however in this retelling every character has some dark secret, give the series a dark macabre twist, makes the characters both interesting and funny at times. You can see why it is such a huge worldwide hit.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image and DTS-HD MA lossless 5.1 sound mix are a fined combination and as strong as any TV on Blu-ray full season release I have seen to date. Extras include the Fall, Fans, Villains & Speculation, and Shooting Sherlock.
