Holmes, what does one say when the end does finally come, Watson might question. Four wonderful seasons and a back in time special, indeed, what do we do now that the "Final Problem" has been solved and "Sherlock," the fine BBC/PBS series, is done? Clearly, a three pipe problem. Well, at least we have the musical scores by David Arnold and Michael Price, and this too concludes with their music for Season Four, with two discs ("It's never twins!") to boot. Overall, Arnold and Price have done solid and delightful work which is as much a part of the series as its wonderful actors, and truly inventive writing, all duly recognized by their peers over the last four years. Here the scores for "The Six Thatchers," "The Lying Detective," and "The Final Problem" are not quite so rollicking as we heard in the first and second episodes, no, they take a notably dark turn as we gradually make our way to the end; note the rather dark opening of “The Stranger” which segues into a secondary theme found throughout the series (Watson's theme?), followed by a subdued version of the "Sherlock" theme, and then a jaunty version of the main theme in the next cut, “59 Missed Calls,” to open the soundtrack and the game is on! There are, of course, recurring themes and motifs, and a very notable violin solo and theme, that plays a major role in "The Final Problem." Along with the violin highlights, there are also moments for the cello. Whether darker or edgier than earlier recordings, it all works on screen and the soundtrack album. It has been a great trip, all in all, leaving us satisfied, but could there be a return, we hope so. The last and very satisfying, strands of "Who You Really Are" not only bring the last episode to an end, they also seem to tie the series all together as a musical finale, "You can file it in your archives, Watson." Nicely produced by Silva Screen Records, with equally nice packaging.
