Cinematography is obviously inferior as compared with Season One, and the writing might have got a bit more watery and sentimental, rather than emotional. Where are the bold, concise one and two-liners which used to nail characters?
Nevertheless, Sherlock is still a creative triumph of a great team.
My heartfelt gratitude goes today especially to Martin Freeman, who carried the emotional weight of the episode. Just as he opened Episode One: honestly, fearlessly and with layers that created his character, so he brought us to the conclusion of Season Two.
Bye, Sherlock, and see you in Season Three!
