Review

Sean Pertwee reprises his role as former Metropolitan Police detective Gareth Lestrade in the latest instalment of this witty mystery adventure.

Following their tense encounter at the start of season two, when Lestrade brazenly claimed credit for Sherlock's handiwork so he could begin a new career as a freelance security consultant, the warring duo are reunited after a bomb goes off during a meeting involving government officials.

A press statement claiming responsibility for the attack appears to echo declarations made by a fugitive terrorist, but Sherlock – no stranger to subterfuge – suspects he's being sent on a wild goose chase.

For those who find the hit BBC reboot a tad too pleased with itself, this US update of the Sherlock Holmes saga is a preferable alternative.

Summary

Sean Pertwee returns as Sherlock's former Scotland Yard colleague Gareth Lestrade, a reunion forced by an explosion during a meeting involving government officials. A blow-up of a different kind is almost immediately on the cards when the two egotists clash over tactics - but both are caught off-guard following the release of a statement to the press taking ownership of the bomb. Crime drama, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu.
