Sherlock series 3 episode title hidden in BBC repeats

One word from the title of Sherlock's series 3 finale will be revealed during each BBC One series 2 repeat, starting tonight...

In a cunning display of cunning, the BBC has chosen to channel the - excuse the cliché, but it's the only apt adjective in this instance - feverish anticipation of Sherlock's third series to give their repeats of series two (starting tonight, Friday the 5th of July, on BBC One at 8.30pm with A Scandal in Belgravia) a push.

The Beeb has set up a word-based scavenger hunt that will allow fans to piece together the title of the series three finale by watching each of the series two repeats. One word from the episode name has been hidden in each repeat screening. Here's the official clue from the BBC:

"The title's in the Series 2 titles, but which titles could we mean?"

Episodes one and two in the third series are already out in the open, the first being The Empty Hearse, and the second, The Sign of Three. Both titles point towards the inspiration drawn from Conan Doyle's original stories, and the series three finale is expected to follow suit. 

In three weeks' time then, we're going to have the full complement. Set your recording devices accordingly...

Interesting, I assume some kind of subliminal flash then? Or is the finale called The Hounds of Belgravia Fall?

£5 says the word we get tonight is 'the'.

The finale is cunningly titled 'In Of The'. Of course, hidden within that 7 letter title is also the clue to how Moriarty faked his death. Fans, start your search!

I'm a bit confused. Has the title been added to the series 2 titles for these repeats or was it always in the series 2 titles and it's a coincidence that you can make the title from words already shown?

Looked at that and immediately thought "Heroin!" turns out thats not an anagram.... maybe i have a problem...

Those cunning swines

N doubt Moffat's initiative. Because he's troll.

I am a big fan of Sherlock but to be honest I don't give a sh*t about hidden words in repeats just tell me when the next series is on already!!

So now we're all looking forward to the season 3 finale "Starring Producer MMXIII".

Beyond The Grave

the answer is 'His'. It appeared in red letters throughout the episode somewhere in a corner.

His Final Bow?

The word was HIS, and people on tumblr are saying it means that the last episode is called 'His last bow' because in an interview the BBC gave away 3 clue words 'wedding, rat, bow' And in the original series theres one called 'His last bow'
