Storyline

Sherlock waits to see where Moriarty will make his posthumous move. One mysterious case in particular baffles Scotland Yard but Sherlock is more interested in a seemingly trivial detail. Why is someone destroying busts of the late Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher? Is there a madman on the loose, or is there a much darker purpose at work, something with its roots deep in Mary Watson's past?

A D-notice has been slapped on the entire incident. Only those within this room, code-names Antarctica, Langdale, Porlock and Love, will ever know the whole truth.

Thrilling and ingenious
1 January 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The Six Napoleans has to be one of my favourite stories from Conan Doyle, so I was intrigued to see what work would be done for The Six Thatchers. The result was something quite wonderful, you can truly see that plenty of time and effort was put into every detail, from the script, to the casting, to the shock ending. Loaded with twists and turns, this has to be one of the best episodes of Sherlock to date, if this one is anything to go by then the series is going to be wonderful.

They played an absolute blinder with Marcia Warren, such a talented actress I always associate with humour and lighter roles, the ending she helped create was spectacular. Best episode I thought for Amanda Abbington, given a big story, to which she put an amazing performance into.

It will be interesting to see how the dynamic between Holmes and Watson develops....

Thrilling 9/10
