Sherlock: The Great Game
It seems like the series has only just begun, but Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ excellent Sherlock comes to an end tonight on BBC1. The third and final episode of the series is called The Great Game and the synopsis is below.
Despairing of the ingenuity of London’s criminals, Sherlock is invited to take on what looks to be a very ordinary case – a young civil servant found on a railway line with his head smashed in. It seems to be open and shut – or so he thinks.
The curtain is about to rise on a terrifying game of cat and mouse as a crazed bomber pits his wits against Sherlock. A 20-year-old murder, a blood-soaked car, a rediscovered Old Master worth millions – it’s just the kind of adventure Sherlock and John relish, but who is behind these deadly puzzles? London is set to become a battle ground as Sherlock confronts the one person capable of beating him.
Sherlock: The Great Game airs at 9pm on BBC1 and BBC HD. We hope the success of the series will lead to more head-scratching stories next year. As long as Moffat can find time in his busy Doctor Who schedule, that is!
