So does the line about people always stopping at 3 and not looking beyond it, foreshadow an extra secret 4th episode this season ?
One thing about Moffat is that lines dropped into dialogue like that do tend to hint at future secrets.
Out of contract June 2017 : Stockdale, Maenpaa, Ankers, Bong, Stephens, Sidwell, O'Grady
I was disappointed with the NY episode. The whole ex-spy/special forces, revenge plot thing made it feel like an episode of Spooks. I also think they have made Sherlock too dark. I found it all a bit depressing when I was looking forward to a bit of an escapist romp.
I was a bit unsure that SACD would have used the expression 'off his tits' otherwise all very enjoyable

Excellently produced and acted, clever and thoughtful writing - not just a good (if somewhat far-fetched) story-line, but also very human.
And I loved the part that Una Stubbs played - the Aston Martin is hers, she is the widow of a drug dealer and she owns property in central London - preposterous but entertaining.
"In football, everything is complicated by the presence of the opposing team". Jean-Paul Sartre.
Toby Jones was excellent and a 'joy' to watch - if that's the right word. Creepy as heck. But the plot/writing is just becoming daft.
I agree with you all... The Savile themes were creepy as hell, but Toby Jones is a great actor. (the video montage of him including a clip of him running a marathon in a jump suit... eugh)
I though Martin Freeman was excellent as well in last night's episode - a real opportunity to do show off his range; he's come a long was from the Office.
An enthralling episode, and sets the finale up perfectly.
