JUST when this se­ries looked like be­ing an ex­cit­ing change to the for­mu­laic mur­der mys­tery shows that fill com­mer­cial tele­vi­sion, out comes an episode so pre­dictable you know who the killer is within the first five min­utes.

While you can pick the mur­derer straight away, what makes the pro­gram in­ter­est­ing enough to keep watch­ing is find­ing out just why they did it.

It all starts when a bomb ex­plodes in a web de­sign busi­ness killing the two own­ers. What stems from there is a se­ries of in­trigu­ing de­vel­op­ments that are grad­u­ally and care­fully re­vealed through­out the hour to keep the mys­tery build­ing. Just when you think you’ve fig­ured out what hap­pens, an­other twist comes along to take the story down a new path. It also features a guest ap­pear­ance from Lisa Edel­stein ( House).

As a side bar to the case is the re­la­tion­ship be­tween Sher­lock and Wat­son. Wat­son’s con­tract as Sher­lock’s sober com­pan­ion is al­most up so she’s on the hunt to find him a spon­sor be­fore she leaves. But with Sher­lock hav­ing ob­vi­ously grown fond of his new pal, he is re­luc­tant to see her go and does his best to re­sist her plan.
