I will try to say this as best I can without spoiling anything. [Warning: some of the negative reviews contain major spoilers. Inaccurate spoilers, but important nonetheless.]

This has never been a show about the cases. Never. The cases are often exciting, fun, a little silly, and a bit melodramatic (never more so than in this episode), but if you dwell on them too long they fall apart. What doesn't fall apart is the character arc (both of them, rather). The thing that draws me to the show in general is that it is the single most carefully crafted and successfully executed development of two fictional characters and a relationship that I have ever personally experienced. Sadly, this is only evident (so far) if one questions motives, looks for cracks in the masks, drops preconceptions, and seeks patterns that are only visible if one draws back to view multiple episodes at a time. All of this has never been more true than in this episode, which takes metaphors that have always existed and pulls them right up to the surface.

You will need your brain. That doesn't mean it's not fun to watch on a popcorn level. It also doesn't mean you need a masters degree: I found the truth easy to see from the start simply because it happens to fit one of my favorite character/story types. It just means that you can't really appreciate this episode fully without having at least a cursory understanding of what was really happening in the first three seasons, and that might mean letting go of your preconceived notions of what this show is about. Of course, if you're confused by that, then this episode has a good chance of clearing things up for you. Just don't deny the obvious, and remember that in storytelling, every scene has a purpose. You might have to watch it twice.

I waited a year and a half for this episode to air and I have to say it was totally worth the wait. I have loved this show since the beginning mainly for the relationships and their constant evolution. For example in "A Study in Pink" Molly Hooper would have never stood up to Sherlock. But by "His Last Vow" she slaps the stink out of him. And watching everyone step up to take care of Sherlock at various times speaks to his humanity while he vigorously denies he has any. And I have to say that any time Mark Gatiss' Mycroft is on screen I know I will be entertained. Most of all it is the sublime casting that makes the ridiculous seem possible. This is a show that I can watch over and over without my enjoyment being dimmed, which is good as there are only 10 episodes to watch.

I liked it. The special gave the creators a chance to play with nonlinear story-telling, horror themes, and subtexts which a normal series run just wouldn't have time for. All of that while being a decent story on its own and making a nice bridge between seasons 3 & 4. The strength of this series lies in its willingness to push storytelling boundaries and innovate. Whether you love or hate this particular story, it does hold true to the series' original spirit of pushing the narrative envelope.

I was a little concerned about this special but I must admit I was blown away!! I absolutely loved this and the interplay between Victorian London and present day was brilliant..a way of letting us fans know that the series isn't changing! I also enjoyed the special features.. Worth the extra three dollars. If you are a fan of this series, you will not be disappointed. My only complaint is that we have to wait so long for future episodes. Keep up the good work.

I adored The Abominable Bride, for the visual aspect, as well as the writing, musical score and acting. There were a few missteps, but that's the truth for any program and the delight of pondering the various elements of the show for clues to Series 4 is one that will linger. If you've never seen Sherlock, this is not the place to start, however, as it ties in very closely to what has come before and a foundation of knowledge is necessary to properly enjoy the presentation. For those who have followed the show, though, this is a treat.

I don't watch TV that much but this show is one I have to watch, the writing is so smart and engaging. So when I saw this was up to buy, there was no question about it, I needed it. This is intended to be what I call a place-holder, something to hold you over until season 4 comes out. (which I read won't come out until 2017, I could be wrong) So this takes place right after the season Finale in season 3 and before season 4. It gives you an idea of what to expect in the next season and it was done so well that I can't wait for season 4. It's a must see if you watch the show.

Just "OK" and that's about it! The movie was pretty decent, but with odd mis-connections between Victorian and the modern-day Sherlock. The Bonus material boorishly self-indulgent ... a solid 15 minutes of material spread thin and repeated over an hour and a half. At $15, I felt robbed when it was over.

The writing, the acting, the production...it's all impeccable. Until this series I was never a fan of placing Holmes and Watson in a modern day setting. But this series gets it right. The fact that we have to wait a year (or more) between seasons is a little annoying, but the result is well worth it. Cumberbatch and Freeman are a joy to watch. The editing and effects really add to the enjoyment of the story. It really is great filmmaking. This movie is a special treat, as it is an additional "bonus" to the usual 3-episode season.
