Long buried secrets finally come to light in season four as Sherlock and John have to face their biggest ever challenge and face one of their most chilling enemies yet. Is the game finally over?

Is The Plot Interesting?

Every episode had interesting themes to them but episode two caught my attention in particular because of its great mystery and great script. It kept you at the edge of your seat the entire way through.


Is The Acting Good?

As usual, the acting from the entire cast is just amazing. Benedict Cumberbatch had a slightly different aura around him and I think that’s because Sherlock grew a lot as a character during this season. Also, Toby Jones plays an amazing villain.

Is The Directing Good?

The directing never stood out to me in any episode of Sherlock this season, but there were a fair few moments (mostly in episode two during the middle act) where the directing shone.


Is The Cinematography Good?

The only time I noticed the cinematography was in the first episode, which is very unusual because the cinematography and editing are two of the things that Sherlock do so well in my opinion.

Is It Worth Watching?

This wasn’t my favourite season of Sherlock but I still enjoyed all it had to offer. This season had a lot to do with character development more than anything else and I definitely enjoyed that aspect of it.


Intuitions are not to be ignored, John. They represent data processed too fast for the conscious mind to comprehend.
