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 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 in 'The Empty Hearse,' 'The Sign of Three' and finally, 'His Last Vow.'
The Empty Hearse
Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch, The Fifth Estate, Star Trek: Into Darkness) is not dead: this much we know. But how did he survive his leap off the roof of St. Bart’s Hospital? There are many theories, but none of them matter to John Watson, who is less concerned with how his friend survived than with why his friend didn’t let him know he was alive. Sherlock returns to London with an assignment (stop an impending terrorist attack on the city) and a plan (restore the old Sherlock-John partnership). When he finds that his brother Mycroft’s warning that John has moved on with his life is true, will Sherlock have to accept a new reality and a new partner? Award-winning series co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, producers of Doctor Who, reunite favorites Dr. John Watson (Martin Freeman, The Hobbit, The Office UK) and Mrs. Hudson (Una Stubbs) in an all-new adventure. (One episode; 120 minutes, TV-PG)
The Sign of Three
Who leaves a wedding early? In The Sign of Three, it’s the best man, namely Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch, The Fifth Estate, Star Trek: Into Darkness). John Watson (Martin Freeman, The Hobbit, The Office UK) may live to regret offering the role to a man who didn’t realize he was John’s best friend, but more importantly, one of the guests at John’s wedding to Mary Morstan (Amanda Abbington, Mr. Selfridge) may not live to see the end of the day. Too bad that Sherlock is unable to focus his tremendous powers of deduction on the murder that’s hatching right under his nose, but then the responsibilities of a best man are more diabolically exhausting than preventing a very clever killing. Written by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, award-winning series co-creators and producers of Doctor Who, and Doctor Who writer Steve Thompson, The Sign of Three presents a “night do” of a wedding to remember. (One episode; 120 minutes, TV-PG)
His Last Vow
A case of stolen letters leads Sherlock Holmes into a long conflict with Charles Augustus Magnussen, the Napoleon of blackmail, and the one man he truly hates. But how do you tackle a foe who knows the personal weakness of every person of importance in the Western world?
