So... how did Sherlock do it? And how will John take the news that his best friend faked his own death? The first episode of this new series, "The Empty Hearse", picks up two years after the devastating effects of The Reichenbach Fall. Dr. John Watson has got on with his life - a new job, a new romance and a comforting domestic future beckon. But with London under threat of a huge terrorist attack, Sherlock Holmes is about to rise from the grave with all the theatricality that comes so naturally to him. It's what Watson wanted more than anything, but if Sherlock thinks everything will be just as he left it, he's in for a very big surprise...
In the second episode, "The Sign of Three", Sherlock faces his biggest challenge of all - delivering a Best Man's speech on John's wedding day. But all isn't quite as it seems - mortal danger stalks the reception, and someone might not make it to the happy couple's first dance.
And in the final episode of this new series, "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?
