Sherlock: The Abominable Bride: Blu Ray Review

Sherlock: The Abominable Bride: Blu Ray Review

Rating: M
Released by BBC and Roadshow Home Ent

The big Christmas special for Sherlock was highly anticipated to say the least.

After the teaser image of Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes in Victorian garb went viral, there was plenty of speculation about what was going on and how the show was going to cater to the rabid fans keen to see how it plays out.

Well, to spoil it is to rob Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss' plan for Sherlock, so that'll be skated around, but needless to say The tale of The Abominable Bride is a Victorian thriller soaked in modern day Sherlock's DNA.

With twists, turns and nods to the post-modern take, there will be some who feel it's all a bit shallow and others who will delight in the deviousness. Needless to say, both Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch deliver top notch turns to keep you entertained as the twists play out.

Maybe a little too clever for its own good and dangerously close to becoming too meta and up its own backside, Sherlock: The Abominable Bride delivers a lot of anticipation for the next batch of specials.

The game is indeed afoot.
