Sherlock Season 4 - The Final Problem


Just caught it again on Masterpiece Theater. It is very different than the normal Holmes cannon but fun nonetheless. The brother gets plenty of time on screen and is indeed a hoot.

John is noble. Moriarty returns and is wicked as always.

Clever writing. Not their best but not bad. "The Six Thatchers" is the best of season 4 including the tale "The Appointment in Samarra" ...

A merchant in Baghdad sends his servant to the marketplace for provisions. Soon afterwards, the servant comes home white and trembling and tells him that in the marketplace, he was jostled by a woman, whom he recognized as Death, and she made a threatening gesture. Borrowing the merchant's horse, he flees at great speed to Samarra, a distance of about 75 miles (125 km), where he believes Death will not find him. The merchant then goes to the marketplace and finds Death, and asks why she made the threatening gesture to his servant. She replies, "That was not a threatening gesture, it was only a start of surprise. I was astonished to see him in Baghdad, for I had an appointment with him tonight in Samarra."

Catch it when you can.
