Set in the 19th century, Sherlock must solve the mystery of a woman that committed suicide and then began to murder men.

 

I actually really liked this. I’m not sure what all the negative talk is about. There was the odd confusing part but easily figured out after a minute. But I liked that it was set (for the most part) in the 19th century. I love the clothes and they suited the characters.

The story itself I actually found really interesting. It’s more interesting considering the time period since they have to be more creative and everything. Although the goal of the bride was a little… odd? It didn’t really seem to make much sense. I’m sure they could have found a better reason. Part of the reason sort of made sense… but it seemed they were pushing it off to the back burner.

 

Anyway, I’d recommend it. At least if you’ve watched the rest of Sherlock. It does reference things (sort of) from previous episodes.
