Sherlock - 'The Lying Detective' commentary

Last week, 'Sherlock' returned to our screens to continue its main narrative since the end of 2014's 'His Final Vow' with 'The Six Thatchers'. However, it would appear that in most circles, the reaction towards the episode was lukewarm to outright negative, with us at 'All of Whine and Space' finding much to enjoy in the episode, but ultimately feeling like we we witnessing one of the show's lowest points to this stage.

So imagine our surprise when we sat down to 'The Lying Detective' to discover that this thing was pretty darn good. In fact, it was very good. We might even be tempted to call it classic Sherlock. But have we deceived ourselves? Have we gotten so carried away with relief following the lacklustre first episode that we're falsely elevating 'The Lying Detective' higher that it deserves?

There's only one way to be sure - it's time for a heated debate!
