This set includes every episode from all three seasons on both Blu-ray and DVD formats, along with the original bonus features released with each season. Additionally, the set features all new commentaries, never-before-seen outtakes and exclusive collectibles including limited edition art cards and busts of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. This is the ultimate gift set to keep fans guessing until the next game is afoot. Sherlock Holmes was always a modern man in an old world. Now he's back as he should be: edgy, difficult and dangerous, as award-winning actor Benedict Cumberbatch (The Hobbit films, Star Trek Into Darkness) shows him in a new, contemporary light. Sherlock can tell a software designer by his tie and an airline pilot by his thumb. He has a uniquely analytical brain unlike anyone else in the world – a man who staves off boredom by solving crimes. When a chance encounter brings soldier John Watson (Martin Freeman: The Hobbit films, Fargo) into Sherlock's life, it's apparent the two men couldn't be more different, but Sherlock's intellect coupled with John's pragmatism soon forge an unbreakable alliance. Across three thrilling, scary, action-packed and highly-entertaining seasons, Sherlock and John navigate a maze of cryptic clues and lethal killers to get at the truth. With sparkling scripts and unforgettable performances, this is a contemporary take on the classic Arthur Conan Doyle stories for a new generation. The finale of season three, “His Last Vow,” recently earned 12 Primetime Emmy ® Award nominations including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for Benedict Cumberbatch, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for Martin Freeman, and Outstanding Television Movie.

Each season comes packaged in a 4-disc case, containing two Blu-Ray discs and two DVDs each. The cases are thicker than the individual release to house all four discs securely, and the cover art has been altered with a "Blu-Ray + DVD" banner added to the front.
Seasons 1 and 2 are identical to the their original video releases. All three episodes and all the bonus features are included. Season 3 is not the same as both discs have been reauthored to include new content: the Season 3 prequel is now on disc 1 and the first and last episodes have audio commentaries added to them. Again, all content is the same on both DVD and Blu-Ray.
The bonus disc includes a gag reel, a deleted scene from "His Last Vow," interviews with cast and crew, and specials aired with Season 3 in the US.
Adding to the set is a pair of art cards depicting Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Watson. Also, some very nice busts are added, and will look handsome on a shelf (propping up these seasons?) or mantle, or, if you're not into such things, can be sold on eBay or gifted separately.
Opening the top of the box, the art cards and discs (in standard cases) are in a thin section at the back, and the busts take up most of the box at the front. After lifting out the cheap plastic casing and cutting the tape, these nicely-sculpted 3D depictions of Holmes and Watson are free to do as you please with them.
Overall, I was expecting a little less from this set, but was actually quite surprised. They offered good value with the discs, and the busts are great little pieces. If you were holding out on getting Sherlock, strike now!
Additional details (11/28/2014) -- Just thought I'd mention this for the benefit of those ordering from other countries. Amazon claims that the discs on this set play for "all regions." Only the Blu-ray discs are region-free, the DVDs are not. I'm from Asia and according to my laptop, the DVDs are Region 1 discs. Fortunately, I was still able to change the region settings on my computer (I think you can only change regions up to four times or something).
I like that this set contains both blu-rays and DVDs, and has an added bonus disc. Further, there is enough extra space in the box to slip The Abominable Bride and the upcoming release of Series 4. So you can keep all your Sherlock discs together in one box. The artwork is nice, and the busts are small enough to display even in a house that doesn't have a lot of extra space (such as mine). A great purchase for any devoted Sherlockian!
