There are elements of Charles August Magnussen's character influenced by Rupert Murdoch. In the opening scene, Magnussen was giving evidence at UK Government inquiry concerning his influence on British Prime Ministers past and present. Murdoch gave evidence at The Leveson Inquiry in 2012 and denied influencing the policies of former Prime Ministers Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair. See more »
When Mary is walking down Leinster Gardens there is a signpost which shows Leinster Terrace behind her and the sign for Leinster Gardens is wrongly pointing to her right. In fact Leinster Gardens and Leinster Terrace form 1 continuous road, so she was indeed walking down Leinster Gardens. See more »
One of the best Sherlock episode. Satisfaction at its best
Haters gonna hate but believe me, if you like Sherlock this episode will blow your mind and satisfy the core of your heart.
If you were bored by the first two episodes like me, this episode will remove the boringness. This episode was very much needed to restore the reputation of Sherlock series. This one episode proves Sherlock is here to stay and blowing minds in regular interval.
As always, Benedict Cumberbatch did a fabulous work along with Martin Freeman. Besides, you'll always like conversation between Mycroft and Sherlock. Their witty conversation will give you pleasure to watch. Enjoy this episode. The villain is just as good as it needed to be.
Moffat and Gattis nailed it.
