All Critics (20) | Top Critics (4)

Not many shows can handle such swift and complete shifts in tone as this, but Sherlock makes them look positively elementary.

So. Sherlock season four started off with a bang, didn't it?

It's kind of a mess. And it really only justifies the impending narrative for the rest of season four - in which John will push Sherlock away as Sherlock awkwardly tries to help him recover - if you ultimately think their relationship is worth salvaging.

Sherlock's fourth season kicks off with a bang in a thrilling, if imperfect, episode that sets up the show's newfound darker tone.

Sherlock has become so clever-clever, it's stupid.

How great to see Jones let rip after so many down-at-heel roles; even his toothy leer, which reminded me of Alec Guinness's in The Ladykillers, felt award-worthy.

Audience Reviews for Sherlock: Season 4


The momentum was lost and the screenwriter seemed to have lost track of what captivated the viewers in the first place. The episodes are all over the place with no clear connections, it was an understandable disappointment.
