Episode 70: The Abominable Bride

 

ep70The Abominable Bride is here and she’s taking no prisoners. We’re transported back to Victorian London, Holmes’ actual home, on a whirlwind journey through the life and misadventures of one great detective and his stalwart friend, Dr. Watson. From their first meeting to crimes both dangerous and grim (“the dog one!”), we’re shuttled through a flurry of the short stories and novels until we come to The Bride.

We expected, perhaps, an homage to the Victorian canon and instead got something unexpected and wonderful: a psychological look at Sherlock himself. We see how he perceives himself, others around him, and the mysteries he and John solve as a swirl of mysterious fog laden adventures under the gaslight streets of late 19th century London.

While we have lots of praise, there’s critique as well, and plenty of discussion about what The Abominable Bride means in the grander scheme of Series 3. It’s wonderful.
