Sherlock series 3: His Last Vow official synopsis
Want to read the BBC synopsis of the Sherlock series 3 finale? Then step this way...
With just over a fortnight to go until Sherlock season 3 starts on BBC One, all three official episode synopses have now been released. Read on for an overview of what's ahead for Holmes and Watson this January...
The Empty Hearse
"Two years after the devastating effects of [Series 2's finale] 'The Reichenbach Fall', Dr John Watson has got on with his life. New horizons, romance and a comforting domestic future beckon. But, with London under threat of a huge terrorist attack, Sherlock Holmes is about to rise from the grave with all the theatricality that comes so naturally to him. It’s what his best friend wanted more than anything, but for John Watson it might well be a case of ‘be careful what you wish for’! If Sherlock thinks everything will be just as he left it though, he’s in for a very big surprise..."
The Sign Of Three
"Sherlock faces his biggest challenge of all - delivering a Best Man's speech on John's wedding day! But all isn't quite as it seems. Mortal danger stalks the reception - and someone might not make it to the happy couple's first dance. Sherlock must thank the bridesmaids, solve the case and stop a killer!"
His Last Vow
"A case of stolen letters leads Sherlock Holmes into a long conflict with Charles Augustus Magnussen, the Napoleon of blackmail, and the one man he truly hates. But how do you tackle a foe who knows the personal weakness of every person of importance in the Western world?"
