Editorial Reviews

The question on everyone's lips is finally answered as the hugely popular Sherlock returns in three brand new action-packed adventures. With the demise of Moriarty, Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch, Star Trek Into Darkness) finds himself locked in another mind battle with the powerful Charles Augustus Magnussen, who is holding the secrets of the world at his fingertips. Once again, the game is on for Sherlock and John (Martin Freeman, The Hobbit) in The Empty Hearse, The Sign of Three, and finally, His Last Vow.

5.0 out of 5 stars SHOUT OUT TO U.S. VIEWERS January 20, 2014
Format:DVD
If you haven't already, DON'T watch the PBS broadcast of Sherlock Season 3. PBS edits the shows before airing. You won't see complete episodes.

I found this out after Season 1, when I bought the DVD's (NOTE: you can get the DVDs earlier from amazon.uk, though you'll need an all-region DVD player to watch them). I realized I was seeing entire scenes that PBS didn't broadcast. A crucial scene in "A Study in Pink", where the murderer reveals his motivation, was cut short on PBS. So you never know until you watch the DVD why he did the murders.

Really unconscionable of PBS to manhandle such a great series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than you think January 17, 2014
By Jackie
Format:DVD
I've seen a lot of people bashing this season as not fitting the Sherlock Holmes we know and love but it truly is better than you might initially think. (Also beware spoilers, though I will try to keep them minimal). I have currently seen each new episode at least twice, and each time I watch them, I appreciate them a bit more.

The biggest complaint is the change, but just like the awkwardness we see in The Blind Banker, episode 1 of this season shows us John and Sherlock trying to find a new balance after 2 years apart. John spent those two years trying to cope with the loss of his best friend and in some ways reason for living (remember the bedsit?), while Sherlock was deep undercover eliminating the threat to the only person/people he truly cares about. This has left Sherlock far more human than we remember him, and John more detached in some ways. The Empty Hearse is full of tension that is lightened with a fair amount of humor. In fact, overall until episode two, it was the most lighthearted episode we've seen. To be honest, it took a few viewings for me to fully appreciate the episode, because there is so much going on, and it's done at a rather fast pace, but overall I thought it was a solid episode.

The Sign of Three is and probably will be for a long time my favorite episode of BBC Sherlock. We see a very different Sherlock again, who is much more human, to the point of setting aside cases to help plan all of the minutia of his best friend's wedding. The play between Mary, John, and Sherlock is absolutely brilliant, and as a viewer I was torn between laughing at the sheer silliness of Sherlock (see the napkin scene), and warm feelings like during Sherlock's best man speech (one of the most touching moments I have ever seen in a show, bar none).

5.0 out of 5 stars Curious beginnings.. January 5, 2014
Format:DVD
When I first watched The Empty Hearse, I felt a bit disenchanted. It was fast-paced in a different, very erratic--a word that several articles have used to describe this series so far--way. I wanted to laugh at the humorous bits, but didn't find them funny enough. It had just failed to meet my expectations, yet I was excited to be watching it. All-in-all, I felt absolutely nothing after finishing it, which is an altogether unfamiliar feeling for me after finishing an episode of Sherlock.

About a couple of days later, however, I decided to revisit it, and haven't regretted my decision since.

Maybe it's missing some of its old flair to some, but I think a lot of it has to do with the plain and simple fact that things have changed for both Sherlock and Watson. Sherlock's more human, and, in a sense, a bit weaker because of it, but he's still Sherlock (though I'm sure some would disagree).
...And Watson? Well, he's said himself that two people have greatly changed his life: First Sherlock, then Mary. Mary is now in the picture--Watson's got a wife, and (skip this if you don't want spoilers) quite possibly a child along the way. Even in Doyle's works, this was a significant change in their lives, as it would be in anyone's life. When you put all this into consideration, the events of Series 3 aren't as surprising, and its mood is a bit different, but suitably so. It's still the show I fell in love with, I think, just headed in a new direction.

Yes, sometimes Sherlock (in particular) feels a bit out of character, his actions and the reactions of others seem a bit absurd/irrational, and a lot of 'deductions' and other bits seem to be more bizarre/left unexplained. And, yes, it's definitely got more humour in it than before.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Defective Detective September 16, 2013
By PatB
Format:DVD
I'm a '60s kid, and much too old for fangirling, even if I was the right sex, but I'm addicted to the show as much as the fangirls are (though I draw the line at "shipping"). Heck, though, Sherlock is testing my stamina as well as my hearing. Benedict Cumberbatch talks at roughly the speed computer chips used to go in the days before computer chips started going at the speed of light. Which is difficult enough for a brain like mine that only goes at the speed of clockwork, but on top of that you have the visual graffiti, those fly-past word-jumbles that litter the screen like a hallucinogenic Scrabble game every time some new character attracts Sherlock's gaze. It makes for an information-flow that is more than my cerebral cortex can process without overloading the circuits and causing smoke to leak from my ears.

Still, there's always the good old BBC iPlayer where you can re-play the show at your leisure. I've seen two episodes so far, and careful analysis of the content tells me that Sherlock is still alive and Moriarty is still dead. That's about all I can say for a certainty, because in terms of comprehension I'm struggling along at the back of the pack.

But certainty is not something you should look for in any case from Sherlock, which specializes in teasing the viewer. Steven Moffat is just one of three writers for the series, but it is his presence that is most strongly felt, even in episodes he didn't write. In many ways the psychology of the show occupies the same territory as Moffat's other show, Doctor Who, where comedy and drama can alternate several times within the space of a minute, and false scents and long-delayed payoffs are part of a strategy that seems increasingly audience-aware.

Season 3 dvds uncut in US?
I have to disagree with the above post - the DVDs that I bought (although I did not buy them from Amazon, as far as I can tell, they are the same exact version) DO have the BBC-to-PBS cuts. There were scenes that I did not see on the PBS version that were definitely on the DVDs - danger nights... Read More
