Sherlock Season – 4 had a long waiting time , almost 3 years since the last season was aired. The expectation were high and so did they delivered. As a first episode of season , The Six Thatchers had its high and low moments.
High Off course was the way the story revolved around John, Mary and Sherlock. The way the episode had been cinematographed.
The idea to add a sentimental angle to the life of Sherlock , Which made us believe that he is more human than we think he is.
Last but not the least the way they gave Mary a large screen space then the others and way Amanda Abbington played the part of someone who left her past but still
Has the skills for it.
We hoped for a Moriarty Sherlock encounter which never happened(but Sherlock did made us believe that it is just around the corner) , The on-screen chemistry between the Holmes brothers was a bit out of place. The start was a bit over the top but then Sherlock was always an over the top character.
All in all a good start to the season with bit of loose ends which might make sense in future.
