Critic Reviews for Sherlock: Season 3

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (16)

As is often the case with Sherlock, the best bits are less about plot and more about people.

The third season is looser, funnier, more emotional and also significantly less logical than what has come before.

Happily, though it's not the series' strongest script, the two fine actors can still extract every nuance from it.

Benedict Cumberbatch is alive and well and in fine form.

All present and correct - fiendish cleverness, conspiracy theories and sparkling wordplay.

Holmes and Watson are such enduring characters, and these versions written and played so well.
