The return of Sherlock after an absence of two years – not counting the one-off The Abominable Bride – set audience records then dropped off precipitously. Of its three 90-minute episodes, one was brilliant, one was much better than the average mystery/procedural and the final had great moments but also a number of obvious flaws.
If you binge all three episodes, though, it is easily apparent that Sherlock’s worst was better than most shows’ best – as the fourth season DVD set shows. Plus there’s two hours of pretty darned decent bonus material.
