Sherlock: which episode should you watch right now?

Not sure which of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman's adventures to watch today? Take our quiz and let science make the choice for you


It’s tough to know what to do with yourself in that strange purgatorial period between Christmas and New Year. Go on lots of walks? Catch up with relatives? Play quizzes on entertainment websites?


Personally, we like to curl up with a box set or three – and there’s nothing quite like a bit of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock to blow away the late-December ennui. It must have been nearly a week since we last watched an episode, and we’re starting to have withdrawal symptoms. But where to start if for some reason you don’t have time to watch all nine episodes?

Not to worry – is here to help. Our new bespoke quiz will match you with the episode of Sherlock that you most need in your life right now, whether it’s the new beginnings of A Study in Pink, the dramatic events of The Reichenbach Fall or the after-hours antics of The Sign of Three. 


Whatever mood or place you’re in, this quiz will find the episode for you – take it now, and see what Doctor Watson prescribes for your chronic purgatitis.
